BERLIN (Reuters) – The German architect of one of Saddam Hussein (newsweb sites)’s main bunkers in Baghdad said on Friday the Iraqi leader can survive anything short of a direct hit with a nuclear bomb if he stays within its four-feet-thick walls.

“It could withstand the shock wave of a nuclear bomb the size of the Hiroshima one detonating 250 meters away,” said Karl Esser, a security consultant who designed the bunker underneath Saddam’s main presidential palace in Baghdad.

U.S.-led troops will also find it hard to fight their way in through its three-ton Swiss-made doors, Esser told Reuters in an interview.

A retired Yugoslav army officer who helped build other bunkers for Saddam also told Reuters this week that the shelters were impenetrable and could survive an atomic bomb. [Yahoo!]

  1. Perhaps the Germans opposed the war because they have even more to hide than the bunkers they built for Saddam?
    Interesting how good the Germans are at building bunkers. Like the bunkers in their minds, that keep out any semblance of reason…

  2. Perhaps the US is invading Irazq to wipe out evidence of their supplying Saddam with weapons of mass destruction?

    Perhaps Saddam is hiding in a bunker because he’s radioactive?

    Perhaps you’re talking absolute drivel?

    Perhaps I am?
