This is a great question and one I feel confident in answering with a great amount of certainty. I first read about cluster bombs in Dr. Helen Caldicott’s “The New Nuclear Danger.” Follow the YouTube link below to get a good idea of how a cluster bomb functions… Notice the tiny yellow packages about the size and shape of a soda can? Not only do they fly into people’s homes indiscriminately and basically go wherever and kill whoever, not all of these little bastards detonate. Here’s the kicker: The food we drop on war torn areas may also come in yellow packaging and be of similar shape and size. This has caused a spike in the number of limbless children throughout middle east as well as the numerous other places where cluster munitions are used…
If you are talking sheer destructive power, it would have to be a nuclear warhead attached to an ICBM. Some would argue that other weapons have been developed that can have similar or worse effects than nuclear weapons, but consider this: nuclear fallout. Other weapons destroy, yes, but do not leave lingering harmful effects for hundreds of years like a nuke does. Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan will not truly be rid of the effects of the bombings of 1945 for a very long time, as they still suffer from health issues and birth defects from leftover fallout. Though a nuclear bomb has not been used in a military action since WW2, it still remains our most destructive weapon to date.
