#7 I didn't see Ukraine anywhere in that article? Making shit up?

Hypersonics are important not only for their very high speed and devastating impact, but that they can maneuver in the atmosphere making interception very difficult with current anti-missile defenses.

#10 I guess Austin is late to the table because he is focused on the purging of white supremicists from the military, creating a "woke" military and getting everyone 100% vaccinated with more and more questionable vaccines. Sad.

#11 I'm thinking that if we are worth the shit we talk, back when that Russian atomic ram jet skipped off the ocean these missiles were approved for design and 90% completion, using as many off the shelf warhead parts possible, and that space sled to pilot car some real world variables.

However it is, IIRC the Russians sortied their subs after the US changed its stance into aggressive accusation. In fact, the drumbeat sounds a lot like McCain and His Heroes.
