Your statement was that nuclear weapons are large.Besides, you are now talking about weapons grade plutonium that has a unique signature that would be traced back to one of the few nations in the world capable of producing such devices. In other words, we aren’t going to have a small, powerful suitcase nuke go off without knowing exactly where it came from and even then, the damage would be a fraction of the devices you list because it would be a ground burst explosion rather than an air burst explosion.
Your statement was refuted.
Right, and the only thing terrorists can do to us is the occasional mail bomb or pizza-shop killing. Then Oklahoma City and 9-11 happened...The only thing terrorist are going to throw at us in the way of suitcase types of bombs will really be dirty bombs that will cause more panic than actual damage. So the claim that a suitcase bomb or panel van bomb is cheaper and just as effective as an ICBM is total hogwash any way you slice it.
Why do you insist on placing imaginary limits on people you know nothing about?

You are aware that Mayor Snorkum is a proponent of the strongest possible missile defenses and continued research in that field, right?
