Just time-sensitive what are you looking at your testing that preposterous
contraption again it’s preposterous, it’s not a contraction and mind your own business in my day we knew how to protect our selves well, in your day you could pretty much you could pretty much turn back the Indians with the Daniel Boone
musket Couldn’t you, ah, sarcasm the grumpy mans wit sharpen a pencil, would ya What’s up the target’s in the air. They’re going to launch the intercept any moment and i’m sure someone will come along soon thereafter and tell me it didn’t work why do you take that attitude? Cause it’s not going to work what do i get if it works? what do you get? yes well i cant make you thailand’s ambassador to the US cause I just signed that guys letter come with me to the situation room you know what you are you are the
Charlie Brown a missile defense the pentagon is Lucy I’m not familiar to the reference, sir Peanuts,Charlie Brown I’ve heard of them I’m just not
conversant in them. Why I never read the comics Leo we were born at the age of 55. I know that there’s a dog Charlie Brown wanted to kick a football

satellites which launched an intercept or kill vehicle SRB Sep is solid rocket booster
separation that means high resolution radar on the
ground has gotten a lock on signal from the kill vehicle so what happens now in 20 seconds it collides with the nuclear warhead where
outer space seventeen miles above the Earth’s
atmosphere okay but we don’t have anybody out there right now do we? No sir when we stay at the Oriental in
Bangkok we have to check out James Michener’s typewriter. here we go Is that silence usually a pretty good sign. No
negative Intercept. Have we got sensor readings No. Negative intercept. the pm warhead has overshot it’s target It was just enthusiastic By how much? uh Leo. By how much did it miss the target.
Colonel? 137 we missed it by 137 feet miles. we missed it by a 137 miles? when you consider it size of outspace Leo not so bad Sir either way the words you’re looking for are “oh good
