Do Our Most Advanced Military Weapons Really Work?
A long range missile failed during a test last week and had to be shot down. this begs the question: "How effective are our advanced weapons?"
Military strategy has advanced from the old days when the soldiers just got out on the battlefield and advanced towards one another. The side that had the most troops left standing was the victor. This is pretty much the way we did things right up to World war I. It was then that the military started looking at more mechanized ways of doing things. Better guns, better equipment, and more advanced rockets.
Even in World War II, it was still mainly one-on-one combat. There were dogfights in the sky and soldiers fought in trenches just like they did in World War I. It was a nasty, cold, and cruel kind of warfare that spared no causalities.
Maybe more mechanization in the future will result in a "kinder, gentler" war. But can there really be that kind of war? Maybe in the future the wars will be between computers, waged by a bunch of bespectacled cyber geeks siting in front of keyboards.
Each year we spend billions and billions of dollars trying to come up with new, more sophisticated weapons. New missiles with pinpoint accuracy. Star wars laser weapons that will beam down lasers from space and destroy enemy installations. Super soldiers wearing the very latest in sophisticate gear.
What the government doesn't tell you is that a lot of these future weapons don't work. Even some of the conventional weapons that we use now have very low rates of being successful. We spend billions on new technology for weapons that only work part of te time or don't work at all. We'd be better off building more of the older weapons that have proven themselves in the past.
According to CNN, " A U.S. missile defense test failed Sunday when a long-range missile missed its target because of radar problems. The Defense Department said a target missile was launched from an Army test site at Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands at 7:40 pm."
I guess it's better for the weapon to fail during then test than when it's actually put into use.
