"The Obama administration is poised to take up one of the more dangerous and hare-brained schemes of the Rumsfeld-era Pentagon. The New York Times is reporting that the Defense Department is once again looking to equip intercontinental ballistic missiles with conventional warheads.

I guess all the misplaced drones and their killing of innocent people isn't warning enough that developing a super version is not a good idea.
