The B-2 bomber carries sixteen 2’000 lb. JDAM bombs. If all goes 100% as planned (the bomb does not fall outside of its specified margin of error of 13 meters, and the GPS guidance system is not foiled by a $50 radio jammer kit, easily purchased), then here is what one such bomb does :
- everyone within a 120 meter radius is killed;
to be safe from serious shrapnel damage, a person must be at least 365
- meters away;
to be really safe from all effects of fragmentation, a person must be 1000 meters away, according to Admiral Stufflebeem.
The B-2s will be used upon targets within Baghdad.

Sounds like the perfect weapon for use in tight city streets. :(
