US makes missile defense system operational

About time.

The United States has moved its ground-based interceptor missile defense system from test mode to operational amid concerns over an expected North Korean missile launch, a U.S. defense official said on Tuesday.

Just in case North Korea's missile "test" goes well for them and not us. I didn't know we had a missile defense system. Why is it just becoming operational now?

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed a Washington Times report that the Pentagon has activated the system, which has been in the developmental stage for years.

Great timing. Now I feel safe from missiles. How the suicide bombers on the subway defense system coming along?

"It's good to be ready," the official said.

That sounds weird. Good to be ready. Is it ready to work? That's the real question here.

U.S. officials say evidence such as satellite pictures suggests Pyongyang may have finished fueling a Taepodong-2 missile, which some experts said could reach as far as Alaska.

Those bastards might bomb our snow! How dare they!
