With all the skeptics on this site, why would you or anyone else take this report as truth?

America now has a rocket that can blow away anything launched on the planet. Maybe it worked great and they don't want to advertise the fact.

Do people automatically assume that they're (government-military) telling the truth now?

Great idea, how ever a human accelerating from 0 - mach 6 would be exposed to g-forces more extreme than some of the best pilots in the world have tackled. Acceleration, basic maneuvers, deceleration, could kill even trained professionals. IF not kill, cause to black out, vomit, empty their bowels and potentially choke on said vomit, or simply asphyxiate by g-forces alone acting on the diaphragm in our chests. How do you propose the average civilian over comes these undeniable realities in a missile.

Can't make a missile do Mach 5 you aint gonna make a whole craft do that either!

You know the space shuttles got up to Mach 5 in about two minutes and kept accelerating after that, right?
You know that ICBMs get up to Mach 23, right?

You'd think they'd try Mach 4 first.

Why the jump unless they already took those steps?

Or Run before you can Sprint


I would like to bet that this is back enginered alien techno and we are trying to use conventional means of propultion to make it work.
