Missile Defence system still possible? info
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Flight tests of the nation's missile defense system will not resume until this fall at the earliest as the military revamps the program following two failures in the past seven months, a military official says.
The agency would need 20 or 30 more developmental tests before it will be ready for realistic testing, Coyle said.
"If it takes two or three years to get a success, at that rate, those 20 or 30 tests could take them 50 years. They obviously need to improve the pace as well as the realism, but they haven't been able to do it," he said

wut do u mean by recently 50 years. like the recent 50 years? and if the gov was to stop tests now that means like a few billion dollars gone down teh trash can. huge waste of money. its possilbe to use an Aegis cruiser and take a ballistic missile down. but thats all technical. the patriot missile system works. but i believe is somewhat unreliable

The Missile Defense shield is a program that needs canceling, it doesn't work, its obscenely expensive, and it cannot protect against a full scale attack. Which means its useless against possible foes like China.
The best protection is, and has always been MAD. Any nuclear attack on the US would bring the immediatle and complete destruction of attacking nation. Its worked for the last 50 years against foes much more dangerous than N.Korea or Iran and I see no reason to change it.
