Oh, and while we’re speculating...

Was the North Korean test of a nuclear weapon a failed test of an atomic bomb, or a successful test of a neutron bomb?

Make it out of NERF foam - that would be very “low-collateral.”

IMHO, it was just a leak of nuclear accident they probably had. There was no earthquake that is usually is a tell tale sign of a nuclear explosion.Everything you wanted to know on seismic verification of nuclear weapons are on these links.

It says nothing about the MK-82

I have a bad lower back due to four years of lifting those Mk82s.

They look heavy. How much do they weigh?

All it talks about is communications,satelllite and nuclear technolohy and nothing about the MK-82 being sold.

Ah.

Context:

sonofstrangelove ~ The Neutron Bomb is probably on of the great milestones in nuclear tactical weaponary.

nully ~ I imagine the Chinese are happy with the plans they got from us during the clinton administration.

I answered the question I thought you'd asked, the one seeking more information about Chinese theft of neutron bomb secrets from Los Alamos.

More context, I’m talking about the October 2006 bomb test, you’re talking about the xenon leak last week.

Am I right?

They are talking about atomic weapons. The W-88 bomb is a nuclear warhead.

We are talking about the MK-82 gravity bomb not nuclear warheads.

I like Norman’s Green Bomb. They could take it a step further by wrapping it with a layer of wildflower seeds; it both kills and beautifies the area.
