He's got a point...

From Strategy Page: "The last of the Minuteman III missiles will receive their new motors by 2008. It costs about $5.2 million to replace the rockets on each missile. The new rocket motors, which have to comply with EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) rules, will have a shorter range (which was classified, but thought to be nearly 10,000 kilometers, based on where the missiles were stationed and where likely Russian targets were.) than the original motors "

Which inspired James Taranto of Wednesday's "Best of the Web Today" to ask "If nuclear missiles have to comply with EPA regulations, what about the warheads?"
