bombs: now environmentally friendly!

Unlike a nuclear weapon, the bomb doesn't hurt the environment, he added.

This from an AP story about the 'dad of all bombs' (outdoing through patriarchal gender norms the US's 'mother of all bombs') that Russia tested at an undisclosed time in the recent past.

'Full' story here.

It's not nuclear, but it destroys kinda a lot like nuclear but it's not bad for the environment! well, except for the bomb part of the bomb. that might, you know, destroy some stuff. but see how much better than before!

I love that the save-the-environment rhetoric works for bomb making. and what better combo than patriarchy + environment to make your point? can't think of one.
