".. new, smaller weapons that can be used for limited attacks and for destroying caches of weapons of mass destruction, especially in buried bunkers, without causing indiscriminate destruction and loss of life"

Well that's alright then, so long as they're only for attacking countries rather than defence and won't harm anybody  :rolleyes:

i think this is a pretty objective take on the physical aspects of these weapons:

http://www.physicstoday.org/vol-56/iss-11/p32.html

they don't sound very good to me.

a couple points summarized:

1. these weapons wouldn't be nearly as effective as current or proposed conventional weapons for destroying buried NBC weapons.

2. they do indeed cause quite a bit of "indescriminate destruction and loss of life". they cannot bury deep enough into the ground to contain their blast and radiation.

..when used to vapourize enemy nukes sitting in underground bunkers..such a weapon would become an "enhanced radiation device"..using the fallout it generates as the weapon...Bush is egging other countries to nuke the US preemptively...

tactical nuclear weapons. Longtime goal, just now becoming viable.

if one of them are used it will be looked at as a nuclear strike. It would be like asking to be attacked back.

oh...but it's ok because we're still in compliance with
the anti-proliferation treaties.

don't worry your pretty little face about it.
