Now we are talking.

The Pentagon has brought forward to December 2009 the target-date for producing the first 15-ton super bunker-buster bomb (GBU-57A/B) Massive Ordinance Penetrator, which can reach a depth of 60.09 meters underground before exploding. DEBKAfile's military sources report that top defense agencies and air force units were also working against the clock to adapt the bay of a B2a Stealth bomber for carrying and delivering the bomb.

    If it's being talked about, we already have it.  

    In America I have bad teeth. If I lived in England my teeth would be perfect.

    Mosy unimpressive, yet one of the most effective weapons currently in development.  You see some of the bombs they test and you can't help but be in awe of the explosion.  With a bunker-buster you just see smoke after the fact.

    I wonder if these can be used effectively to losen gravel in civilian applications.
