    Dummy - no. Inert - yes

    "The inert missile did not contain any explosives, the Journal reported, but there are concerns that Cuba could share the technology with potential US adversaries such as North Korea or Russia."

    "The Journal reported that the US is also investigating whether the missile’s disappearance was a deliberate act of espionage."

    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

    The Hellfire dummies are not painted blue (at least not all of them).
