Critics contend that the new missile is a weapon
whose importance is largely symbolic,
more a tool for manipulating people's perceptions than to fulfill a real military need.

Critics contend that the new missile is a weapon whose importance is largely symbolic, more a tool to manipulate people's perceptions than to fulfill a real military need.
