Sorry to tell you, but the people who say: "UFOs are US mil" can't go whooping and hollering about this rocket. If indeed (I said 'if') the US really has the kind of space technology to travel 10,000mph and turn at 90° on a dime, then this 'old' rocket technology is a complete waste of tax payer money.
Good point....however the counterargument that NASA/conventional tech is a "Peoples space programme" which takes the financial hits to pave way for a more purposeful and advanced "Corporate/Military Space Programme" would also be compatible with your above summary.
Make the taxpayer pay for all the costly trial and error research and development, give them chemically propelled tin cans in return, then keep all the good stuff that falls out of it for you and your cronies (Corporations, MIC, Agencies etc).
