A Screaming Comes Across The Sky

Via Sterling.  Am I the only one unnerved at the prospect of two so-called "superpowers," or, more likely, some sketchy Central/South Asian organization with a homemade and/or Soviet surplus cardboard-and-duct-tape rocket + launch key, tossing these things back and forth (or, in the case of a SC/SAO, probably only forth) through low earth orbit?

"The HTV-2 is part of an advanced weapons program called Conventional Prompt Global Strike, which is working to develop systems to reach an enemy target anywhere in the world within one hour. It launches on a rocket, then comes streaking back to Earth at enormous speeds, at times heating up to temperatures of nearly 3,500 degrees Fahrenheit."
