Everybody here is sick. Sick like dogs, ha ha.
I think I (Kim) don't get sick because I eat vitamins everyday. Anyway since I am the only one here that is not sick, I'm making a diary entry. So here it is.
News report from Russia:
The Russian military has successfully tested what it described as the world's most powerful non-nuclear air-delivered bomb, Russia's state television reported Tuesday... Channel One television said the new weapon, nicknamed the "dad of all bombs" is four times more powerful than the U.S. "mother of all bombs."
Like its U.S. predecessor, first tested in 2003, the Russian bomb is a "thermobaric" weapon that explodes in an intense fireball combined with a devastating blast. It explodes in a terrifying nuclear bomb-like mushroom cloud and wreaks destruction through a massive shock wave created by the air burst and high temperature.
"The tests have shown that the new air-delivered ordnance is comparable to a nuclear weapon in its efficiency and capability," said Col.-Gen. Alexander Rukshin, a deputy chief of the Russian military's General Staff. "Unlike a nuclear weapon, the bomb doesn't hurt the environment," he added.
Another part of the report mentioned how Russia now has extra money to spend nowadays, on developing new bombs and other war stuff. One reason is because the price of oil has shot up since the U.S. invaded Iraq. Russia is a major producer of oil. Sometimes I see things on TV about how bad the Russian economy is and how so many people in Russia are suffering, but at least now they have super powerful eco-friendly bombs.
Here is a very 'exciting' picture of the bomb exploding.
Very impressive. I bet you the U.S. bomb guys are feeling very ashamed of their bomb-smallness now.
This is the end of my entry. Thank you. Kim.
[ Bunny's note: A bomb that doesn't hurt the environment? Coming soon: bullets that tickle as they go through your head... ]
[ 9/13, Bunny: Another idea: Pine-scented napalm. ]
[ Kim: You could get a job at Lockheed Martin with ideas like those. ]
A response from the U.S.:
WASHINGTON, September 13 (RIA Novosti) - The U.S. has a 14-ton super bomb more destructive than the vacuum bomb just tested by Russia, a U.S. general said Wednesday.
The statement was made by retired Lt. General McInerney, chairman of the Iran Policy Committee, and former Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force.
McInerney said the U.S. has "a new massive ordnance penetrator that's 30,000 pounds, that really penetrates ... Ahmadinejad has nothing in Iran that we can't penetrate."
He also said the new Russian bomb was not a "penetrator."
"Forty-eight hours duration, hitting 2500 aimed points to take out their [Iranian] nuclear facilities, their air defense facilities, their air force, their navy, their Shahab-3 retaliatory missiles, and finally their command and control. And then let the Iranian people take their country back," the general said describing the campaign, adding it would be "easy."
I wish I was making this up, but unfortunately this is a real news story. Kim.
