all that time and money wasted simply because we're too pussy to use low-yield nuclear devices..

think about it, if one intends on some day blowing up an Iranian nuclear facility, would it really matter if the explosive itself is nuclear? it's not like it would drastically increase the nuclear fallout and contamination created by destruction of the nuclear facility.. :cool:

2 x 1 = 2

2 x 2 = 4

4 > 2

My understanding of the logic behind the non-use of Nuclear devices is simple, ie;

We have far more WMD than you do, we're not using them because that would be a crime against mankind, therefore YOU can't use yours either! and if you do we will retaliate with extreme prejudice, etc.

You know setting a good example as well as taking the moral high ground, or am I wrong? :hmm:

...full on tungsten penetrator or depleted uranian spear...


Given the mental images these terms employ I'd rather spend my taxes on a "...full on tungsten penetrator..."

Sounds viral and effective. Madison Ave loves this stuff.

Better for Boeing's PR.

A depleted uranian spear sounds so, oh I dunno, flaccid and impotent.

Maybe we could offer the iranians some discount Viagra after we knock their dicks stiff?

"the massive ordnance penetrator is a weapon system designed to accomplish a difficult, complicated mission of reaching and destroying our adversaries' weapons of mass destruction located in well-protected facilities," lt. Col. Melinda f. Morgan, a pentagon spokeswoman, said in a statement.

wmd's! :run:

Sure, the government can spend hundreds of millions on penetrating, but when I spend a couple hundred on it, they want to arrest me for soliciting a prostitute.

****in hypocrites!

Thanks, I know the next time I'm planning on doing a bit of destroying
the Führer's bunker, I'll make sure I use the right tool for the job.

Exactly, right tool for the job. Good to see you got my point.
