Any info on this potential tactical nuke?

I cant find any info on this but looks to be a nuke.

What is strange about this to me is if it came from an islamic source, why is there no "allahu akbar" or other commentary to it celebrating it?

I don't understand enough about weapons (well, maybe . . .

shotgun shells and bullets for some kinds of pistols--)

to comment, but I am bumping, because I think it's important--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Use some common sense people!

They do not make Nuclear weapons with a yield that low, it would be completely impractical and unnecessary.

Here is what a conventional 2000lb bomb looks like:

And you can fit way more than 2000lbs of conventional explosives in the back of a truck that large.

Secondly, If I were attacking an enemy base surrounded by friendly houses, why would I use a nuclear device, especially when a nuclear device would be way more rare and expensive, and conventional explosives were better suited for the job, were cheaper, and more widely available, and wouldn't create as much unwanted collateral damage?

Use your heads.

What was used is not so much the issue......

The foremost issuse would be "who done it & why?" What's going on?

That's the whole issue here.

The claim made by this thread is that a nuclear weapon was used.

""who done it & why?" What's going on?"

Isn't it pretty obvious, people who are infuriated that their country is occupied by a foreign army are attacking an occupying foreign army with a truck bomb.

DP: What is this 'common

DP: What is this 'common sense' you speak of?

WELL.....

Talk about a blackout on the news DPers arn't even talking? This was posted here over 12 hours now.

I know the video is vague but has anyone heard any news on this yet, or is this just the end of it?

That is not a nuke

Just a big ass truck bomb.

What's Interesting...

...to me is how we get a camerman who knows to zoom in on that big truck and pans back wide again in time for the big event. Is that luck? In fact, I find a lot of the video that is captured and distributed of various big events (not naming names here) interesting in this sort of way. I have no clue about the nature of the ordinance, nuclear or otherwise.

ummmm perhaps

the cameraman was intentionally filming the attack as they often do?

Ummmmm...

...that was my point.

without the islamic

without the islamic celebration, could it be on purpose????
