By the way I thought of something to do with the emp thing even though its a little off topic i think emp is sheildable by gold or lead. thus would neutrons be stopped by a thin gold layer as well .
My question reguarding the Neutron Bomb is, why aren't we using it? From everything i've read these would be far superior to sending in troops on a massive scale to take a city or terrorist camp, after using a couple of these you could send in a relatively small unit of troops to finish cleaning up. Either they're too expensive to use extensively or is it that the rest of the planet would be mad that we can wage war, kill our enemy and have relatively few casualties? Any thoughts on this?
