An Even More Absurd All-American White Elephant
1. Enormous Expense: Gigadollar Prices!
2. Gross inefficiency: 1/1000th order of magnitude at best
3. Exotic, high power lasers required.
4. Confinement only momentary, a "micro-nuke"
5. Pellets must be continuously fed in.
6. Difficult to exploit output power.
