From Pentagon briefing:
“it’s not exactly clear why, if it’s true, why would you need a hypersonic missile fired from not that far away to hit a building? It could be that they’re running low on precision-guided munitions and feel like they need to tap into that resource.”

Yeah, not sure why Western media has breathlessly reported HYPERSONIC MISSILE as if it’s anything more than, uh, a fast missile. Big deal. Even the slow missiles are hard to shoot down, and Ukraine has limited capabilities to do so. So in effect, Russia is using particularly expensive gear to do what, hit a building or two? Seems stupid, and people need to stop treating those missiles as something special or particularly concerning.
