The 'suitcase' nukes that have supposedly gone missing within the Russian arsenal have their equivalent in the US military- the 50 pound 'Davy Crockett' bombs built between 1956 and 1963. These can destroy a small city.

A legend spun by a defecting Soviet relates that the Russians salted Appalachia with their suitcase bombs, to be detonated when the time was ripe.

Just before being killed in a mysterious accident, General Lebed claimed over 100 Russian nukes were 'missing.'
Some sources claim that 'Al Qaeda' purchased these nukes from Chechen mafiosa types and renegade ex-KGB officers, paying with opium or opium derived profits. The 'Arab-Afghans' also bought the launch codes AND technicians necessary for a detonation.
It is also rumored that terrorists have, or are trying to, buy the launch codes for regular 'ordinary' nuclear weapons, without stealing them outright. This could mean that it might be possible to launch the entire ex-Soviet arsenal without Putin's permission. I hope these stories are just a bit too far-fetched to have any reality behind them.

The E-bomb is a new device based upon older technology, which emits an electromagnetic pulse that fries electronic circuits and thus can shut down civilization by pulling the plug upon all our gadgets. The September 2001 issue of Popular Mechanics says a small E-bomb can be acquired for $400.
