Yeah, but AFTER we appropriate ALL of Israel's nukes. If Israel can have nukes, then so can EVERYONE.

Nukes are old fashoned and outdated. The new generation of scalar weapons can vaporize an entire city without the residual radiation. The new weapons make this old thing look like a fire cracker. Nukes are going the way of the horse and buggy.

Hold your horses guys. The article says it's 600 times the Hiroshima bomb. Other than turning Iran and Paki into dust flakes, it could set off earthquakes along geo fault lines or even affect the earthÂ’s rotation or orbit. You never know. Looking at the picture gives me that strange apocalyptic feeling.

Earthquakes in Iran and Pakistan would be an additional bonus. Scorch earth policy is the only one western countries should have dealing with muslim cults.

Sick of muslim barbarity in the name of allah. You think I care, in the tinniest bit, whether the entire iranian population is snuffed out? The iranians created the government they have. They deserve what they consequences of their creation. As does Porkistan. Whether a person dies of a bullet to the skull or in a thermonuclear blast doesn't make a bit of difference, dead is dead.

I have to agree with most people here.
There are some places that would benefit from large bomb being dropped on it.

Lets say we drop it on a shit hole like... papa new guinea... this will remove all the starving/dying/useless people there, and leave the land open for some other country to make better use of.

The land itself isn't that bad - a first world country could make a good settlement there - just clean it up first.

Of course, you could drop it on an oil rich country, and let the UN take over it, and allow it to cheaply distribute oil to UN nations as required...
