#1 What's the option? Stand up a gummint backed solid fuel rocket maker Ala Solyndra? Talk Musk into entering the market? Buy Russian, Chinese or Iranian solid fuel (you probably think I'm kidding)

#2 The US has the oldest ICBMs on the planet. The Minuteman III ICBM came into service 50 years ago.

#3 The B-52's are still going strong. They are always trying to replace the Ma' Deuce. Some things just keep on working.

#5 B52 = flying F150 (drink up). M-2 .50cal HMG will live forever, and so will anyone forced to carry that damned tripod mount (or a mortar place).

Some things were simply made right to begin with.

Asking Musk to "take a look" at SRBs probably isn't a bad idea, he might come up with something off the wall that works well.
