Tullio,

I am glad to see that you are irish !!!

Seriously though. My weapons training showed that the critical mass required for an A bomb is more than what you stated. Yes I know that breeders have not worked out so far. I don't see why they couldn't be achieved by renewed engineering efforts.

I am not Irish, But I like Irish whiskey and Irish songs. Also, Irish writers like James Joyce, who spent a part of his life in my hometown, Trieste, learning the Triestino dialect from fellow writer Italo Svevo and drinking white Istria wine.

I've read that the US Gov is going to bury U-233, produced at Indian Point,deep in the Nevada desert so that terrorists could not dig it out and make a bomb. It is weapon grade material.
