Well, sounds like you can do just about anything... terrorism, suicide bombs, ect.The letter informed the IAEA that since Sept. 4, 2003, looting at the Al-Qaqaa installation south of Baghdad had resulted in the loss of 214.67 tons of HMX, 155.68 tons of RDX and 6.39 tons of PETN explosives.
HMX and RDX can be used to demolish buildings, down jetliners, produce warheads for missiles and detonate nuclear weapons. HMX and RDX are key ingredients in plastic explosives, such as C-4 and Semtex — substances so powerful that Libyan terrorists needed just 1 pound to blow up Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988, killing 170 people.
It doesn't take much to make a big hole in an airliner, and 1lb is a pretty respectable amount of explosive, if used correctly.substances so powerful that Libyan terrorists needed just 1 pound to blow up Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988, killing 170 people.
:roflmao1:andy said:the heat tabs that they used to (do?) sell only needed treating with nitric acid and mixing with vasoline to become a compound so close to RDX as to be indistinquishable (or so I'm told).
