"Or more specifically, they simulate nuclear explosions ever since test detonating nuclear weapons was banned in the US."

Hmmm, they can always test their WOMD in Afghanistan or Irak. Oh, wait, there's still some drops of oil left, must dry them off before testing things any further ;)

In simulation, at least you avoid collateral damages with the native civilians !
