Although it has been proven that partisan political gain IS sufficient end for all sorts of evil, the Republican hysteria about Obama and the Mid -east skirts around its main conclusion. The reason it goes unsaid is that the Fox programmers do realize it is exactly what Osama and KSM et al were saying; that the world is divided between the World of Conflict ( non-Islamic world) and the Uma, or Islam and Christianity are always at war and the delusion is to pretend otherwise. What this really means in a age when we( meaning Humans) can obliterate entire populations is what the Repugs will not say ( except Anne Coulter ( my Mom's best friend's daughter), who did say something along the lines of demand conversion to Christianity on threat of those Neutron bombs we used to hear about which kill people but leave oil infrastructure. This is why so many republican statements seem to stop short of a conclusion.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Check out real neutron bombs. (0+ / 0-)

    It's a long-term meme, but what real neutron  bombs do is provide enhanced blast, enhanced radiation, and reduced (nowhere near to zero) fallout.

    That doesn't really leave the infrastructure standing. What I'd expect from an a-bomb over an oilfield would be ongoing fires, at least if the oil was under sufficient pressure to not need pumping.

    •  The original purpose of the neutron bomb (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      was for use against massed Soviet tank formations if they pushed into Western Europe.

      A "standard" nuclear bomb is not particularly effective against tanks. The tank crews are protected by the thick armor. They would likely die from radiation poisoning some time later, but they'd be in Paris by then so it wouldn't matter.

      The Enhanced Radiation Warhead or "neutron bomb" was supposed to generate enough radiation to get past the armor and kill the tank crews (in large numbers) quickly.

      It was never designed to "kill the people leave the buildings".

      If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
