precis: Just when you thought the world was safe from hypersonic aircraft,
along comes the Pentagon with word that it is about to revive its cancelled
"blackswift" program as "son of blackswift". This puppy flies for hours at
mach 6 and at altitudes no fighter nor missile can touch. It is also
stealthy to the max, robotic (so no crew gee jelly issues to deal with) and
able to drop a bomb (conventional or nuke, your choice) or cruise missile
(same warhead choices but in pink and green for those eco-friendly wmd
warm-n-fuzzies) or even make cyberattacks anywhere in the world with no one
able to do anything about it. Have a warm, safe day! scary as hell but SFW.
