Russia builds 'most powerful bomb'

MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- Back in 2003, the U.S. proudly trotted out the so-called "mother of all bombs," a device described as the most powerful non-nuclear weapon in history.

Now, Russia claims it has built the "dad of all bombs."

Russian state television says the military has successfully tested what it describes as the world's most powerful non-nuclear air-delivered bomb.

The military claims the bomb is comparable to a nuclear weapon in efficiency and capability, but unlike a nuclear weapon, it doesn't hurt the environment.

The Channel One television report showed the bomb dropped by parachute from a bomber and exploding in a massive fireball. It featured the debris of apartment buildings and armored vehicles at a test range, as well as the scorched ground from a massive blast.

With extra oil revenues, the Kremlin has been taking steps to rebuild its global clout and its military.

I didn't pay much attention to this on the news tonight, and even now I only skimmed the article. So what does it do? How do you wipe out the people (which I assume is the purpose) but not the environment? Ahh clever scientists. I seriously do not understand why people feel the need to make such things. Yes, to protect themselves, but I get the impression that people like these [bomb-lovers, not Russians] are gonna end up bitten in the ass in the end. It's so frustrating, but at the same time, I'm glad I'm on an island in the middle of nowhere, more or less.

The URSS already tried to do that and it failed miserably.

Once you get past a certain number it's all for show. Trust me, if we had a nuclear war with Russia where wouldn't be anyone left to claim victory.

Maybe they'll try to reduce poverty in their country? Now THAT would be an achievement!

Actually they did that, poverty line has rduced as Russia's economy has boomed.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results
