Unless of course it’™s us that brings it.

Don’™t plan on being in Vegas the first week of June? It’™s going to be a blast.

The U.S. military plans to detonate a 700 ton explosive charge in a test called ï–¿–½Divine Strakeï–¿–½ that will send a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas, a senior defense official said March 30.

ï–¿–½I donï–¿–½t want to sound glib here but it is the first time in Nevada that youï–¿–½ll see a mushroom cloud over Las Vegas since we stopped testing nuclear weapons,ï–¿–½ said James Tegnelia, head of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

I’™m not up on this stuff, but didn’™t we sign treaties to the effect that we wouldn’™t be detonating any nukes? Not that it matters much to the asshats running the show.
