From Times Wire Reports

A U.S. cruiser equipped with an advanced missile-defense system docked in Yokosuka, Japan, as concerns linger over North Korea’s missile program.

The Shiloh is equipped with Aegis technology, which is geared toward tracking and shooting down enemy missiles.

The top U.S. commander in the Pacific, Adm. William Fallon, said last week that Washington and Tokyo planned to work closely to develop a missile shield to defend against threats posed by communist North Korea.
