New Russian Bomb Really Sucks

The Russian military has tested the world's most powerful vacuum bomb. The bomb produces a high pressure ultrasonic shockwave and extremely intense heat.

The high temperature shockwave reaches much farther than any conventional weapon. Gases are consumed in the blast creating a partial vacuum that exacerbates property damage and injuries to animals and people.

Russian deputy armed forces chief of staff, Alexander Rukshin, said the vacuum bomb has the explosive and destructive power commensurate with a nuclear weapon, and that "all that is alive merely evaporates."

Taking the opportunity to tout Russia's green credentials, Ruskshin added, "... I want to stress that the action of this weapon does not contaminate the environment ..."

Oh, that's very considerate. I know I will appreciate being evaporated while the environment is unharmed. I'm sure Gaia will remember the kindness of Russians.

Sancho Panza is his name. The comic relief and voice of sanity for the insane Don Quixote.

The Don's impossible dream is a noble one, while Sancho just wants a place to sleep and food to eat. The question eventually is who really is insane?

And it won't harm the environment??? Guess what? The liberals will believe them!

Gosh it is good to see you post atheling2! :)

Of course liberals will believe it, A2. They'll believe anything but truth.

I wonder if the liberals will try to use the environmental friendliness of the Russian Vacuum Bomb as a justification for non-restrictive warfare.

People and animals sucked up in a vacuum and instantly evaporated while leaving the environment undamaged. Why is it that sounds like something Al Gore would come up with?
