It's not just a coincidence that you showed up shortly after U-238 got banned.

Can an ICBM be recalled after launch?

No, but some ICBMs like Minuteman III have a self destruct mechanism.

Look what happened to the B-70 and Skybolt programs. They were canceled in 1961/62 while the Minuteman and Polaris programs were accelerated.

ICBMs are a cheaper and more effective way of doing the same thing. They have much faster response times and are less vulnerable.
