    Ambivalent? Don't folks take that for insomnia?

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Rocket: projectile with onboard propellant and questionable flight stability
      Modern Rocket: a rocket that is less likely to turn around midflight.
      Stabilized Rocket: a rocket that probably won't hit whoever fired it and might even hit the target.
      Missile: a rocket with delusions of accuracy.
      Naval Artillery: Never mind, the target no longer exists.

        Ever seen the video of the cruise missile that was launched from hundreds of miles away going through the small window on the side of a building before exploding? THAT is what I call precision

            General Schwarzkopf introduced the world to precision guided ordnance during the Gulf War.

            My two personal favorites are the one you mention, and the "guy on a bicycle" AKA "the luckiest man in Iraq".
