Sputnik International — Hypersonic Weapons Should Be Under Int'l Rules - UK Nuclear Operations Head

UK's Head of Nuclear Operations for the Director General Nuclear, Commodore Paul Burke claims that hypersonic weapons should be under international norms and rules....
Paul Burke also noted that London is following Russia developing hypersonic aviation means of destruction yet is not capable of developing their own system.
"We watch what Russia is doing, absolutely. We’ll keep an eye on what we’re doing and trying to respond accordingly usually through diplomatic, international norms and treaty obligations," Burke said. "The UK wouldn’t be able to do anything like that. So, we wouldn't be able to develop that sort of system ourselves."
Shoe on other foot? Maybe Russia isn't just a gas station?

Russia warned it would respond asymmetrically. So will China.

It's sad. Smedley Butler said that the Military-industrial Complex shod be turned over to domestic production over 80 years ago. The elite can make just as much money out of domestic products. I guess war makes money a bit faster.
