Tungsten is one weapon they have up there for example. They use enormous tungsten rods loaded with explosives to penetrate underground bunkers and
then detonate similar to a depth charge (only subterranean). They also have laser systems which are designed to shoot down ICBMs, among other things.
EMP devices are part of the inventory, as well as some relatively new concepts primarily related to atmospheric control and modification. Think
about it; the ability to wage war on the enemy and hit their ass with a giant tornado right before you invade...
Of course these things are all very nasty devices and could easily be misused, however I think the true purpose is security, with a little fear factor
thrown in for good measure.
