SkyNet anyone?

A supercomputer with the processing power of two million laptops is to be built by IBM for the US government to help manage its nuclear arsenal.

IBM announced it was developing the technology for its "Sequoia" system, which will be easily the fastest computer on the planet, with delivery to the Department of Energy (DOE) scheduled in 2011.

Am I the only one who thinks all this is a bit much?
Now if you were to put this thing to a proper use like maybe a Battlefield 1942 Server with 1024 player capability I could see building it.

Skynet is a fictional computer system which acts as the primary antagonist in the Terminator series of films.

Maybe science fiction become a reality.
