Oh, excuse me, Iran? Something cookin’ for y’all

Here’s some food for thought for those “threat allergic” Islamofascists in Iran:

The US military plans to detonate a 700 tonne explosive charge in a test called “Divine Strake” that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defense official said.

Tegnelia said the test was part of a US effort to develop weapons capable of destroying deeply buried bunkers housing nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.

“We have several very large penetrators we’re developing,” he told defense reporters.

“We also have — are you ready for this – a 700-tonne explosively formed charge that we’re going to be putting in a tunnel in Nevada,” he said.

“And that represents to us the largest single explosive that we could imagine doing conventionally to solve that problem,” he said.

The aim is to measure the effect of the blast on hard granite structures, he said.

He didn’t indicate whether anyone told the Iranians about what was up but:

He said the Russians have been notified of the test, which is scheduled for the first week of June at the Nevada test range.
