More Options

This is great news. The previous generation of Merkins lived in fear of thermonuclear war. Today our overriding anxiety is that the military will run out of ways to bomb faraway strangers into oblivion.

The hypersonic rocket could give the U.S.  military more options when a chance to strike an enemy arises, and when no drone, aircraft carrier or other piece of military hardware is nearby, said Elbridge Colby, a fellow at the Center for a New American Security, a think tank.

More options!  Cannot have enough options.
