The myth of the bunker buster
What I know about bunker busters is just about nil, but if this article is correct it doesn't matter because the damned things don't work. Basically they have to hit the ground just right and if a facility is buried under tons of granite and many feet under ground they tend to leave it shaken but not stirred.

If the science in this article is correct, then the putative American attack on Iran is not about destroying facilites that the Iranians don't seem to have anyway. The most likely explanation is regime change. The problem is that regime change tends not to come about under enemy bombardment: the troops will have to go in.

So the Americans will use bunker busters that they must know do not work to hit empty facilities. This to cause a war that could drag on for years.

All this is just getting dafter and dafter.

So the U.S. regime has been lying to us about their bunker-busting capabilities all this time? Who'da thunk?

Which means that the situation has always been, and remains, that to get at any real bunkers -- maybe -- they would have to pound mountains into rubble and vapor, serially raining multi-Megaton city-busters onto the same spots, over and over, systematically removing layer after layer of granite by vaporizing the stuff as they turn it molten first, fracturing the very bedrock deeper and deeper...

Needless to say, this would, uh, be VERY bad for the environment, and the human race, and all things which creep, crawl, scurry or fly upon the face of the Earth... And that's just discussing this one narrow aspect of a nuclear war -- not all the rest of it!

Do we need any more proof that this system has to go? Like, right away?
