Missile Defense- Tit for Tat

So, the other day, the US tested its Ground Based Mid-Course Defense (GMD) interceptor by a launch to validate an upgraded Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV).

What an amazing coincidence then that China tested their own GMD system!

From the very day Ronald Reagan announced the goal of ballistic missile defense, critics have announced that not only would it not work, it could never be made to work. This despite the fact that an ICBM target had been intercepted 20 years before Reagan’s announcement. And if it will not and cannot be made to work, why is it China and Russia continue to develop their own anti-missile systems?
