(Worthy News) – The U.S. and Russia on Monday traded shots over the development and deployment of hypersonic missiles, with each nation accusing the other of using the cutting-edge weapons in a “destabilizing” way that could lead to conflict.

The Biden administration’s Pentagon budget proposal, for example, invests heavily in the technology. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
