“It looks amazing,” enthused Dan, one of those empty-headed announcers over on Hawaii News Now.
“Yeah, it's pretty cool stuff,” gushed government propagandist, I mean, “broadcast journalist” Ramsay Wharton, who then proceeded to give Raytheon's SM-3 Block IB's kinetic warhead a glowing, and totally unquestioning, plug.
The news: PMRF launched another missile from Kauai last night and Raytheon's gear shot it down. Ramsay's spin: Gee, isn't war and America and all that exploding stuff grand?
Almost as an aside, Ramsay — a failed GOP Congressional candidate — tosses in, “Now Russia threatens pre-emptive strike over that planned U.S. missile shield....” with absolutely no follow up.
Let me get this straight. It's supposed to be a defensive tool, but it's provoking saber rattling? Sounds effective. So does that mean Putin will "hit" Kauai in the preemptive strike, since we're the center for these test launches?
I know, I know. Quit asking questions. No one cares. PMRF brings money into the economy, and that's the only thing that matters.
