    [h=2]U.S. Air Force started receiving the massive bombs in September, Bloomberg news agency reports; the bombs are capable of destroying underground targets, such as Iran's nuclear sites.[/h]

    The U.S. Air Force has received new 30,000-pound bombs capable of destroying deep underground bunkers, the Bloomberg news agency reported.
    The bombs, designed to be delivered by B-2 stealth bombers, "will meet requirements for the current operational need," U.S. Air Force spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jack Miller said in a statement to Bloomberg.

    The U.S. Air Force reportedly started receiving the bombs in September. The bombs are six times bigger than the U.S. Air Force's current bunker-busters.
    According to the Bloomberg report, the Boeing company in August received a $32 million contract for eight of the bombs.
    Tensions between the U.S. and Iran rose recently after the release of an IAEA report that found that Iran has been working on developing nuclear weapons since 2003.
    The U.S. and Israel have not ruled out conducting military strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities, some of which are located in fortified underground locations.

    HAPA NI KATI YA WARUSI, WAMEREKANI NA WACHINA

    US vs Russia vs China - Nuclear Warhead StockpilesAby June 26th, 2007
    Due to their overwhelming destructive power, nuclear bombs have become a political tool rather than military weapons in this era. Continuing the Soviet legacy, Russia continues to be the leader in the size of nuclear warhead stockpile and delivery capabilities. United States of America comes at a close second, followed at a distance by the People's Republic of China. Although this triad share close trade ties with each other, they are considered military rivals, mainly due to their political alignment and spheres of influences.






















































    The largest nuclear explosion - the Tsar Bomba test of 1961 (Click on video to play)
    Russia - Russia (ex- Soviet Union) has the distinction of successfully developing and testing the first fusion based nuclear bomb in 1949. It also developed and tested the most powerful nuclear bomb till date - the Tsar Bomba in 1961 with an yield of 50 Megatons (the Hiroshima bomb Little Boy yielded 0.013 Megatons). The current Russian nuclear stockpile is estimated to be 17000 warheads of which 7200 are believed to be operational and deployed. The nuclear warheads can be fired from bombers, silo or mobile truck launched ICBMs and submarine based SLBMs.

    United States - The United States of America is the first country to develop and test a successful nuclear bomb in 1945 (Manhattan test). It is also the first and only country till date to use nuclear bombs on human cities (Hiroshima and Nagasaki). The first megaton bomb the Ivy Mike was also tested by USA in 1952 with an yield of 10 Megatons. The current US nuclear stockpile is about 9900 warheads of which about 5500 are operational. United States possess stealth bombers, silo launched ICBMs and submarine launched SLBMs as nuclear weapons delivery systems.

    China - China began to develop nuclear bombs after repeated nuclear threats and blackmail from US and UK over the Taiwan and Hong Kong crisis's respectively. It tested its first fission based nuclear bomb on 16th October 1964 dubbed as the ‘596‘ test. China's first hydrogen bomb was successfully tested on 17 June 1967, with an yield of 3.3 Megaton. China's current nuclear stockpile is significantly smaller than US or Russia - at an estimate of 150 to 200 warheads. However the exact number is not known due to PRC government's secrecy concerning China's military capability. China can deliver nuclear bombs using silo and mobile launched ICBMs and submarine launched SLBMs. It does not emphasise on bombers as nuclear bomb delivery systems despite having a few nuclear capable bombers.

    The Conclusion - USA and Russia currently possess the largest nuclear stockpiles which are the remnants of the Cold War arms race. Both USA and Russia have the capability to cause irreversible mass devastation of the human race on this world using their nuclear weapons stockpile and delivery system. The People's Republic of China can cause significant damage or either Russia or USA however it cannot destroy them with its small nuclear stockpile (which is used mainly as a political tool for deterrence). As permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and signatories to the nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty, their nuclear stockpiles do not evoke apprehension as much as those of Pakistan or (possibly) Iran's does.

    US vs Russia vs China - Nuclear Warhead StockpilesAby June 26th, 2007
    Due to their overwhelming destructive power, nuclear bombs have become a political tool rather than military weapons in this era. Continuing the Soviet legacy, Russia continues to be the leader in the size of nuclear warhead stockpile and delivery capabilities. United States of America comes at a close second, followed at a distance by the People's Republic of China. Although this triad share close trade ties with each other, they are considered military rivals, mainly due to their political alignment and spheres of influences.

    Hizi fedha wanazoharibu kwa kutengeneza silaha za maangamizi hawa US wangewapunguzia makali wale waandamamnaji wa "occupy wall street" na wananchi wao. Lakini hawa waharibifu kila siku ni vita,vita,silaha,silaha.

    Hii Arrogance yao hawa US itawadondosha, kuliwa na dola kubwa katika historia na walipo-abuse hiyo priveledge matokeo yake yanakuwa ni kuanguka kwa ukuu wa dola hilo.
