I never said that a scramjet had moving parts.

>"Yeah, but it is getting that scramjet up to Mach 5 - before it even starts to work - that requires the fuel sucking engines of many moving parts."

Whether the engines are on the craft that also has a scramjet, or whether it is lofted up to speed by a towplane, those scramjets need about Mach 5 to start working. You can't just open them at stand still on the tarmac and get them to work.
