[quote:Anonymous Coward 3160:MV8yMTQ2NTBfNDAyMjQ5OV9BOUU2RkQwNQ==] "Mr Tegnelia said the test, which is scheduled for June 2, was part of a US effort to develop weapons capable of destroying deeply buried bunkers housing nuclear, chemical or biological weapons." Can somebody explain to me why it would be desirable to release biological weapons (germs) into the open atmosphere? [/quote]
"If you want to model these weapons, you want to know from a modelling point of view what is the ideal best condition you could ever set up in a conventional weapon - what's the best you can do.
"And this gets at the best point you could get on a curve. So it allows us to predict how effective these kinds of weapons ... would be."

700-tonne blast test near Las Vegas
By Jim Mannion in Washington
THE US military planned to detonate a 700-tonne explosive charge in a test called "Divine Strake" that could send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defence official said.
"I don't want to sound glib here but it is the first time in Nevada that you'll see a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas since we stopped testing nuclear weapons," James Tegnelia, head of the Defence Threat Reduction Agency said.
Mr Tegnelia's remark at a breakfast with defence reporters set off shock waves of its own in Washington.
