... incredibly dangerous ...Osama needs just 1 stick of Dynamite taped to the
side of the Tybee Bomb to ruin our lives forever. Like NY, we would never be the
same in this lifetime. YOU can quote me on this and finally... if this bomb were
lost in NY Harbor or Chesapeake Bay just east of Washington, it would be found
immediately. Is Savannah still paying a price for the War Against Northern
Aggression? Cheers, Derek
Analysts have warned that terrorists would not
need to master the complex technology of a nuclear explosion or
intercontinental missile guidance. They could pack radioactive
material around a core of conventional explosives for a lesser bang--but
lots of contamination. Such a ``dirty bomb'' attack might well be
more survivable with a fallout shelter. ``When you had civil
defense in the 1960s, that was ridiculous,'' says physicist Edwin Lyman,
who is scientific director at the Nuclear Control Institute, a
research group in Washington, D.C. ``Now, in the context of the risks
associated with a terrorist who might have a small number of ...
radiological weapons, it's not necessarily a bad idea to think if
there are procedures that would avert casualties.'' Home
shelters vary widely in size, degree of protection, and cost.
