A Maverick Marianist university

So UD has had at least one military contract to work on the Maverick missile, as mentioned in the previous blog entry below.  That was news to me. 

Here is information about the Maverick:

The Maverick is the “most widely used precision-guided missile in the world,” according to Spacewar.com – and what name in the media could be more trusted than Spacewar.com???

Now, while I’m sure some folks at UD would object that they are not making the explosive in the Maverick, they’re just making the laser that guides it, so don’t blame us, etc.; and while others would say, “Damn right we work on that missile – it is helping keep America safe, it takes out evildoers, and if the occasional civilian is killed by mistake, that’s an unavoidable part of war,” etc., etc.; the point here is, if the provost of UD left a civil war in the Middle East because he did not want to kill Muslims – he wound up at the wrong university.
