When I find ants on my kitchen counter in the morning, I don’t just squash one ant. I sweep them all up with a sponge and they go down the drain. The missile fired from PMRF is that one ant. There are thousands of nuke armed missiles aimed at the US, many far more elusive than this one.
Missile Defense is a fool’s errand.

This is national coverage. Kaua’i’s PMRF missile defense system is national. It’s not a thing that a Kaua’i resident or its representatives could have a say on these matters. They could try. But this defense test is for the testing of protecting the Pacific waters and its people. Like Hawai’i. Or Tahiti. Or any location off the Pacific Rim that best represent the US territory. So military and US property takes over on these issues. The local government has no on these issues. Glad to see it went well. We all want peace on our islands. Start by concentrating on our military defense.
