The fact that you only see one doesn't mean there's only one.  And note
that the .MIL domain perhaps has a vested interest in *NOT* having a fully
redundant view of the world accessible from outside.  Sure, it's one point
of failure - but if you're battening down the hatches because of an attack,
it's also a one-stop place to cut yourself off....
