Oops. Hang on, dammit, we're not ready yet!

Sometimes, you go to war with the ballistic missile shield you have, not the ballistic missile shield you might want or wish to have:

President Bush's planned ballistic missile shield suffered another setback on Monday when an interceptor missile again failed to launch during a test of the U.S. missile defense system...

"There is no indication that there is anything wrong with the actual interceptor," said [Missile Defense Agency spokesman Rick] Lehner.

That is, other than its actual inability to, you know, well, get off the ground.
