Blow the ones we know then backtrack the clusters of delivery.

#5 The gentleman knows whereof he speaks. The point of military demolition is not how big the boom but how much destruction can be caused by the least explosive material.

#8 Here's one of their "underground cities" at Kermanshan. There are over 50 bunkers, either weapons storage or munitions storage. There are about a dozen sites like these in the country, and the US knows where ALL of them are. Those bunkers may be able to protect their weapons, but a couple of dirty 1Mt nukes will kill all the launch crews. No launch crews, no launches.

#10 I guess these are 'secret' cities our satellites missed during construction? Giant tunnels have giant piles of spoil.

#11 Preserve from the infidel's wrath,
O Allah, our new Ladies' Bath,
And guard from his glance
All the ladies that dance
Hence and thence, clad in chaste Persian pants,
On our hastily raised Scenic Path!

#12 I'm with #9 tx, #8 OP. My missing you the last few months was mostly my fault, but miss you I have. Hope to "see" you a lot in the future. :-D

#15 Actually, Fairbanks, I did see them in the same room once. And Fred, and Bobby, and several other 'burgers as well.
