Rather scarey considering the countries that now have weapons like these.

If dropped in the centre of Sydney, well, I suppose we would have cheap real estate again.

Shocking.

Biological weapons are the ones to be scared of. I serve in the forces and have done survival courses and studied the effects of Nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, believe me, nuclear weapons are easier to survive. The other worrying thing is that while only a few countries can produce nuclear weapons, any country that can produce it's own wine is capable of producing biological weapons.

I just read through that web site a bit, and honestly, us Humans can sometimes be to smart for our own good.

I am no history buff, but it said the USA was going to attack the USSR in a pre strike against these weponds and drop over 20 nukes.

WTF!!!

A very interesting DVD/Video out there is "Trinity & Beyond". It's basically footage of the US Nuke tests from the 40's to the early '60s. Very interesting viewing.

The India v Pakistan thing is not about rigging cricket games. They are hot headed enough and well populated enough to have a real 21st Century war. And the polution will come our way after a few weeks. Aussie and Kiwi civil defense is a joke.

You have been warned.
