Didn't someone use a Tomahawk cruise missile (~$1.4M USD a pop) to shoot down a (civilian) drone recently? Seems they don't really care about the money haha. At some point they probably just want to get a little bit of use out of all the stuff they've paid for. They also use Hellfire missiles (~$110K USD a pop) regularly to kill single individuals.

The cruise missle attack on the airport:
If the US did not manage to take out a few planes I think they made a massive mistake.
Military airports can be made with a thicker version of what they use for aircraft carriers - that means a thin sheet of metal that is surprisingly durable underneath maybe a couple layers of something similar to asphalt.
They might have already repaired it by rolling out the ashphalt repair truck.
But, gotta spend money to bill someone else I guess - Kanye.
The combustion car engine is 21% efficient at best.

It's already developed and built - like I said - probably was about to pass its expiry date, 11kt of HE probably isn't cheap to dispose of... (But I was wrong on the date, 2003ish build not 2001). Using it was likely cheaper than disposing of it.
Who cares but yes this thread is useless without video
