    As several people have posted on DialyTech, "Wonder what the next bomb will be called?" Glad they are getting away from nukes, but that's it. The effects of a nuke aren't gonna last thousands of years. Sure they'll last a long time, but no where near that long.

    BTW JACK4HIRE, does that mean you are the Jew that is f*cking, or that you are f*cking a Jew? Either way, still pretty funny.

    Neutron bombs are even better. Not as devastating based on destruction power, but deadly for living organisms (massive momental radiation) and electronics while the radiation goes away way faster than from traditional thermo-nuclear weapons (which mainly rely on destructive power caused by the shockwave).

    Russia's been moving faster and faster back to the Cold War status quo. And while this bomb certainly doesn't have the yield of any small-sized nuclear device (30T vs. 43Kt like the bomb dropped on Hiroshima), it could feasibly have an additional payload of biological or chemical material (or even old nuclear material for a dirty bomb). Russia has always had far less of a porblem in using those type weapons anyway, and those can end up being far more deadly than any conventional weapon.

    While strategic long-range bombing isn't quite so easy to pull off today, when you've got a large enough fighter force behind it, I would imagine you still could do so. Although, the cost to both sides would be enormous. Something else to consider though is that the MOAB can be dropped by cargo aircraft giving it a distinct advantage in the number of aircraft that can drop it.

    The above were built with early 1960's, 70's and 80's technology. What do you think the US has secretly in its inventory now in 2007?

    Well, since we are talking about non-nuclear stuff, probably not much. I wouldn't be surprised if they had some biological or chemical weapons in there though. Just because we say they are bad and dirty doesn't mean we wouldn't use them if someone used them on us, which is no excuse really.
