    The Jerusalem Post says it.

    Bush a coward?  Maniac as well.

    Today, 11/3/07, 3847 Americans, and untold Iraqis are dead, tens of thousands more maimed. What are YOU going to do today to help end the Bush/Republican war?

    •  strongly doubt it (0+ / 0-)

      if nukes had been used, several things would have happened

      1. there would have been seismic reports, unless it were an incredibly tiny nuke -  anything over 1 kiloton should cause a seismic event.  Granted, there are nukes smaller, but they might not have been sufficient
      1. there would have been evidence of radiation, and someone would be reporting that
      1. someone somewhere would have reported the mushroom cloud  

      I could be wrong, but I strongly doubt it

      Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH! If impeachment is off the table, so is democracy

    •  also, note sourcing of nuclear story (0+ / 0-)

      is indirect, J Post reporting from Al Jazeera

      one bomb of sufficient conventional explosive force could have done the necessary damage, and we have conventional bombs of up to 15 tons or more, and if the building were above ground and not below ground that would be a sufficient blast to flatten even the normal containment structure for a nuclear reactor.

      •  That is possible... (0+ / 0-)

        I recall aerial engineering in Vietnam for "Instant LZ" prep using 10000 lb blockbusters, and these mammoth 12,000 and 15,000 pound daisy cutters.

        WHAT. A. BANG. THEY. MADE.
