DarnoKonrad: Meh, it's just a weapons platform. Don't we have enough ways to kill people at the moment?


Nope. We are always searching for quicker, more efficient ways to kill people.

Yes, enemies are everywhere. Transfer pork to defense contractors, but socialized medicine is evil presumably because it includes mental healthcare which would be the Republicans' undoing.

imnotadoctor: Why are we wasting money on a missile that can go Mach 5?


so we can kill people in huts faster. Plus its a great way to defend us against pissed off muslims who over take planes with box cutters. i heard mach 5 is the best way to defend against small knives.

DeathCipris: Didn't they say that this wasn't going to be used a weapons platform?


No, that is the NASA side of this project. X-43. Pretty much the same project but one is to make things go boom, the other just sometimes goes boom by accident.

Girion47: That's great, can we quit wasting money on R&D now? We can blow anyone up at anytime, lets put that cash towards infrastructure, both roads and communications back home. Focusing on those two things will do far more damage towards our enemies than some super fast farking missile.


I agree completely. Can't we repurpose our military and train those guys to do road repair and other infrastructure items? One thing I never understood was that we spend so much stupid money on military and blowing things up yet those soliders can only do one thing and one thing only. I thought our new military was supposedly to be more agile and mobile and easily adaptable.

How about we take half our military budget, use that to train people in new tasks, put them into construction crews and start their march across the US?

Moron. Spending money on something other than defense contractors and tax cuts for rich people is socialism.

This was for cruise missiles right?

Couldn't we have spent that money more wisely like going to Mars or something?
