You Know What's Pretty Amazing About This Story?

Check out two lines from this article:
The military says an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile has been destroyed minutes after it blasted out of an underground silo on the California coast on a test flight.

[...] The military says the missile was nearing its target in the Pacific Ocean's Kwajalein Atoll area when it was destroyed.

Kwajalein Atoll is just a couple thousand miles from the Philipines....Probably take about twelve hours by plane, give or take.
