2. I think these are highly destabilizing "decapitation weapons" that could lead to nuclear war

How does a potential enemy (Russia or China) determine that the launch of these missiles are not part of a nuclear first strike? (even though they are not nuclear armed projectiles)


If they are launched from submarines they might be misidentified as SLBMs.

Would Beijing or Moscow authorize a "launch-under-warning" nuclear retaliatory strike?

Would we do the same if they targeted our nation's capital??

We are sailing into uncharted waters.

Here be Monsters.

Yup
