Different Christian -- also talk about more military stuff because there's something and of course it affects all of us are gonna go back to wanted to do it -- -- to DC right.
Our New -- -- through this one up there Alison there.
-- it -- in new York and you're talking to your defense specials of course horse hockey all the time about.
Stuff you have -- of course has an article on foxnews.com sodas Alison talking about.
The -- -- -- talking about US missile defense and the reason why I think this is a lot obviously connected to this is that we covered that you just asked about 45 years ago.
When the navy went out off the coast of Hawaii shot down two threats that wants one was consider to be an atmosphere of -- -- -- was up in space if you will.
And they knocked -- both down of the USS Lake Erie back then fantastic to watch these guys in action in your piece is really.
Kind of advances where we are right now wanted to give us a rundown of what this article -- -- for someone who hasn't seen yet and I do you recommend everybody go to read -- it's a very good read it's a very quick read.
Give us a layman's terms what they're going to find out.
Typical recently and that even Valentine's Day was their most recent test item glad you raised that you looked at it before it -- remember that.
-- -- that it -- for -- to do this -- together Katrina so read up on ovals topic.
This is basically a missile defense and the this Missile Defense Agency kind of runs the system it's got -- major components to it.
-- would be detection so you can detect stay with Latin Latin based radar.
CD -- and space to let this test involved very cool.
And they -- that intercepts -- intercepting conference there battle -- they can come from the land.
This is where this -- used to this kind of high -- launch and intercept.
By the incoming threat.
And a third component is how -- I'll talk to each other so the commanding control element -- that commanders all over the world can share information.
Now what we're looking at right now when the screen went dark it's because we're actually getting super exciting very cool -- you're forgetting to see this tax in action.
Adam and that's the view from the rocket isn't an ascent debris midnight may be -- typical -- -- The story didn't see as -- -- up in the air and honest tests on me it's a commitment.
The -- -- Hawaii but early morning crash and the east has this is the actual launching of the SM three.
And we're seeing it from the USS.
Eerie -- eerie.
They're launching they.
The way to test -- -- that -- speaks.
Sensors detect out in outer space literally out outer space detected -- -- Those tests.
And they lost -- as a Syrian response immediately within minutes launched.
And it intersected very successfully -- -- direct hit.
-- so within minutes of detection.
They'd actually destroyed the threat so.
I thought this would be great strengths do you stay at hand because and -- and North Korean announcement of course -- a lot of fear and concern and I wanted to reassure people that.
Things are going extremely well this program has a really excellent batting average.
I know a lot of reviewers like distant statistics LA and made sure to build a lot of -- is -- -- that.
Even this this system is on a lot of our fleet last time I -- -- 26 cruisers and destroyers.
And sixteen of them were deployed to the Pacific Ocean so as in week week.
Within the area -- region and record it.
So very little stuff.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know as young as 21 years old in some cases twenty years old were you running these systems.
And you mentioned what I think also it's important note that it's -- -- based system that's the one thing that really gives us an advantage in the -- to move this around the globe with the water of course covering.
Every every incident that the places that we need to be -- allows us to basically move this defense system anywhere around the globe and knocked these things -- -- kinda hearkens back to the days of the Star Wars that.
Idea the President Reagan had back in the eighties and -- back then got some Snickers but.
Now that this systems in place that is isn't exactly the same it's very similar -- this thing is is is bullet on bullet and right now they're hit most -- -- -- -- that.
Yes it's it's really really impact impressive and if there's a take away for our viewers -- that.
This is an incredibly effective systemic.
That they should find very comforting and if if you might and -- you just break down his North Korea.
Just quickly there's two -- -- one is the delivery system the other is the warhead issue.
If you look -- initial capacity.
The reason why people are concerned is because.
To be frank their missile program hasn't been going super well.
It began know pretty much for instance in that.
When the -- and assistance for young beyond the core work Egypt gave them some -- of the kind of work from there that kind of reverse engineering process gave him a kick start.
But is still to -- a really long time to develop anything that's.
Relatively close to a missile went into deficits is really kind of their Big Three three year.
That they had three tests are incredibly unsuccessful I'm sure people remember those.
In the media was my -- -- it's remarked you know.
And in fact last year people remember that North Korea said hey you know and respect in return for -- will you give up our program but.
Of course in any month later being they had testing go up but then in December they did -- -- they have long reach capacity was commuted daily.
Theoretically be able to get TV US mainland they do however about a thousand missiles in their arsenal.
Makes it ranges.
Accuracy isn't fantastic.
I even on the shorter ones they have taken heat for Alan and these white people are concerned is because it's my VW their program it's another you have -- -- a warhead.
I'll get to me try it and so last month.
They announced they claim they're able to meet -- is it does that mean that they'll be able to deliver it -- -- -- I think unlikely at this point but it's -- something to watch.
-- a -- -- missed a lot of Saber rattling trying to get more money more food for their people on this is one way they do it but as you mentioned you know.
Whether or not it's the US right now I don't think that's the biggest threat that the US is worried about -- South Korean of course you have Japan that are.
Our interest or there are our friends -- there -- I think it's one of the years that worry about Britney yeah I do worry more about the article.
Exactly out of thousands of men and women in both locations of course and I and our allies are there as well exact you're the article US missile shield defense against ballistic threats -- -- has a right now foxnews.com.
Yeah -- her -- -- -- along with Christians if you wanna learn more about Chinese espionage as well.
Both of them great reads -- also appreciate your time from New York to look for talking do you get -- and again.
