A Saudi neutron bomb attack on Yemen?

Filed under: conspiracism,nuclear power and weapons — louisproyect @ 11:36 pm

There’s a Youtube clip about such an event that has gone viral. It has been endorsed or at least taken seriously by all the usual imbeciles like Global Research who posted an article titled “Possible Tactical Nuclear Strike (Neutron Bomb) in Yemen?

Here’s the Youtube clip of the bomb going off:

Pretty impressive, no?

However, it has to be understood that neutron bombs carry the equivalent of 10 kilotons of TNT payloads. Here’s a Youtube clip of a 3.5 kiloton nuclear weapon. Does the explosion above look three times as powerful as the one below? How do people on the left end up looking like such cretins? Of course, since Rush Limbaugh has recommended Global Research to his listeners, maybe it doesn’t make sense to group Chossudovsky and company as part of the left.

As another yardstick, here is 100 tons of TNT going off. As you can see, it is roughly equivalent tof the Yemen bomb going off at the top. So the notion that a neutron bomb went off  in Yemen that was 1000 times greater than this is psychotic.


  1. Your assessment lacks professional training and insight. This weaponry is tactical in nature. Old radiation weapons were very uncontrolled reactions which your post clearly states. Neutron weapons are getting smaller as technology grows because of how this particular weapon works. Tactical nuclear weapons are designed scientifically to be Small enough to destroy a building to large enough to destroy 400 square miles. They can be methodically created for their intended purpose. This neutron weapon is a bunker buster. The neutron energy insures all biological matter within the bunker is killed by bombarding large amounts of radiation through the bunker walls. This is a neutron weapon. I have been trained to identify them. Your assumption that the size of the blast proves anything is false because of this.

  2. So what is your point? A nuclear device was used in Yemen?

  3. I think the point maybe that it is a smaller (but still nuclear), weapon than that of the yield estimated by Global Research. I would have thought a Marxist would be aware of the nuclear “shilly-shallying” betwen the U.S and Israel AND Israel’s determined strategy to; “throw its toys out of the pram” whenever it is not getting its own way (re: Iran Deal)! “Arafel” gkhales.blogspot.co.uk

  5. It was an old russian neutron bomb with tritium outdated (no fusion flash) brought by Iran few weeks before…2 others exploded,the first one on 2011 july3 into a russian ammo depot in udmurtia,and the last one in ukraine near vinnytsia on 2017 september 26 evening…these bombs are “fata and smola” neutron bomb for russian tyulpan 2S4 tank.
