I don’t know the logistics of doing this nor the impact. I can’t speak much to this subject except to suggest I hope this isn’t the road the world is going down.

I don’t see it as a likelihood. So near as I understand, the only conceivable practical use of a nuke against ISIS is if they have a bunker deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep underground (some mountain cave with well-hidden entrance and ventilation) that they can’t pinpoint exactly, but for which they could drill a deep shaft and do an underground detonation.

Daisy Cutters and MOABs would likely work just as well, no?


#4

Depends on how deep the bunker is. If it’s far enough down, it would be somewhere between impractical and impossible to collapse it with conventional explosives.


#5

Not really. If you destroy the upper levels of access and ventilation, you’ve effectively destroyed the bunker–and anyone who’s IN it.


#6

Yeah, if you know where they’re at. Admittedly, that’s a lot more likely than knowing the approximate location of the bunker without knowing those other things.

Apparently we know where the ISIS hidy holes are but refuse to bomb
