A Standard Missile Three (SM-3) is launched from the guided missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG 67) during a joint U.S. Missile Defense Agency, U.S. Navy ballistic missile flight test in the Pacific Ocean, June 22, 2006. Two minutes later, the SM-3 intercepted a separating ballistic missile threat target, launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Barking Sands on Kauai, Hawaii. The test was the seventh intercept, in eight program flight tests, by the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense. The maritime capability is designed to intercept short to medium-range ballistic missile threats in the midcourse phase of flight. Picture taken on June 22, 2006.

An attempted demonstration of force by the United States designed to intimidate North Korea has backfired spectacularly.
The US launched its SM-3 interceptor missile from the USS John Paul Jones near Hawaii in a test to take down a ballistic missile. The test has failed according to US officials. Both the dummy missile and the SM-3 crashed into the ocean.
This comes amid Donald Trump using threatening language to North Korea in the aftermath of the death of an American convict recently released from North Korean custody.
