i can imagine them say the Insurgents are starting to use them and they need more counter measures which would increase spending

Binary explosives are, indeed, real.
The video, however, is a touch misleading. The watermelon could easily have vanished, not because it was vaporized, but because a sudden explosive 'kick' on one side blew it off its rather precarious perch. The folks who posted the video are careful not to show the ground around their detonation, probably for a reason. Even if the melon were actually 'vaporized', that doesn't imply much more explosive force than you can get from an M-80 or an old-school 'cherry bomb'...which is still a potent punch for such a small charge, but not nearly as potent as the video would lead you to believe.
