Two Failures In One Day: The Colossal Waste Of Anti-Missile Defense Systems

Within the new $700 billion defense budget the U.S. Congress allocated more money for missile defense.....Two incidents last night provide again that missile defense is a waste fo money. It hardly ever works..... This time various videos from Riyadh show that at least seven interceptors were fired against the three incoming missiles. At least two of the interceptors failed catastrophically. The other five seem to have simply self destructed at height. There is no sign of any real interception.

One of the Patriot interceptors prematurely exploded during its boost phase. Its burning debris showered the ground with hot parts.
