Missile Defense Fails again

Well, for the THIRD time in a row, missile defense has failed in a test. So far, we have wasted nearly $130 Billion (that's right.. BILLION!!) and is scheduled to cost another $50 Billion over the next 5 years. The hitting a bullet with a bullet concept is not the smartest way to tackle this problem. I think it is becoming obvious that our current level of technology is not up to the task of shooting down a missile. The missile defense concept was a useful psychological advantage for a while, but it is so blatantly obvious that our system doesn't work that advantage is effectively neutralized. I have an idea how we use that $50 billion; give all the troops a raise, body armor, and armor for their humvees! Anyone else who has a better idea of what we can use $50 billion for, feel free to chime in.
