US Destroyer Shoots Down Missile in Test Off Hawai'i

Chrystia Freeland: North Korea Missile Test 'Reckless' Violation Of Japan's Sovereignty

Although the test comes in the backdrop of Pyongyang's provocative ballistic missile test over Japan, the MDA claims it was planned way before in advance.

Those aboard the USS John Paul Jones detected and tracked the target missile using onboard radar equipment and used an interceptor missile to bring it down. The US President's comments follow his declaration that "all options are on the table" after the North Korean missile flew over the Japanese island of Hokkaido.

Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie told the FOX Business Network's Dagen McDowell on Mornings with Maria that time is of the essence in dealing with the North Korea threat.

A medium-range ballistic missile target is launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai, Hawaii, during Flight Test Standard Missile-27 Event 2 (FTM-27 E2) on August 29, 2017.

"We are working closely with the fleet to develop this important new capability, and this was a key milestone in giving our Aegis BMD [Ballistic Missile Defense] ships an enhanced capability to defeat ballistic missiles in their terminal phase".

Mike Campisi, Raytheon's SM-6 senior program director, said the company developed the anti-ballistic missile capability in just seven months after it was requested earlier this year.

The target missile was launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauaʻi.

This test marks the second time that a SM-6 missile has successfully intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile target, officials said.

Due to the diplomatic efforts and sanctions failing to make headway in stopping the North Korea threat, Higbie is concerned the US may be forced to consider the military options.
