  1. no bomb is big enough to wipe out the entire eastern part of USA, do you realize how big that is? The largest bomb test (Tsar Bomba) ever in history had a destructive radius just slightly larger than Paris. And no, I doubt anyone created a much stronger since bomb because it gets impractical. The radius won’t double if you double the blast force, most of the energy will just go upwards and so to blow up half of the US you’d prbobably need a bomb larger than any amount of fuel can carry.

  2. wow, Why the FUCK would you even want to go on russia in the first place? i mean, THATS what makes you so dangerous, your comments makes no sense and they make you look like some army sergeant psycho guy, no one wins in a war as i said, the “victorious” is the country that lost the least casualties…

  3. Weapons solve a lot of things. It doesn’t mean we have to use them. We won’t attack Russia because they showed us their nukes that we don’t have. Now we take Russia seriously and don’t mess with them.

  4. are you 12 or something? no one have ever “won” a fucking war in history, they lost when they started a war, Weapons doesnt solve a shit, and untill you are in denial about that, you are a dangerous man..

  5. Anyway, doesn’t matter what country would be destroyed…or what bomb it would use: The only thing that would be wiped out would be peace, and with it, the complete notion of “countries” would be left beside. The Tsar bomb was just intimidation , I know it was 🙂

  7. i mean WOW this is insane! this has by far gotta be the sickest thing ive seen. this tells me people are playing with things they dont have controll over… im not judging tho everything comes from trying something new!.

  8. Yeah, I’m completely aware of the Tsar bomb. It was used in the 1960’s, hence they don’t have it anymore. Secondly, while that bomb was ridiculously powerful it did not have the power to “wipe out the entire western or eastern part of the USA” by a long shot. The person I was responding to has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about.
