...a 'bunker buster' thermonuclear device that might prove useful in cleaning out the rats' nest - B61-11. Read about it from 'Nuke 'Em From On High' at wireddigital.com, located at: [url]http://wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,47319,00.html[/url] [u]Not[/u] that I'm advocating this sort of escalation, or anything, but whatever it takes to rid the earth of this nasty [u]ratfink[/u]!

Depending on the yield of the bomb, the B61-11 can produce explosions ranging from 300 tons of TNT to more than 300,000 tons. This is significantly less than the B53, but still far larger than even the greatest conventional non-nuclear device in U.S. stockpiles. And it is several times more powerful than the atomic weapons dropped on Japan in 1945.

Nukes still leave a nasty residue and would be considered a last resort. We still have the conventional bunker bombs designed during the Gulf War.
