So what kind of mass can you destroy with such weapons? --Idiot numbre 188 (talk) 17:29, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

I would say a "dirty bomb" is a WND, in that the scope of its effects (miles and miles and miles if it's big enough and the winds are right) and its long-term effects (conceivably rendering a large area uninhabitable for a real long time) make it more than just a "terror weapon."

And I would say you're right. A WMD is one that uses chemical, biological, nuclear or radiological effects to cause casualties, and a dirty bomb definitely qualifies.--Fergus Mason Thruppence I got for selling my coat, tuppence for selling my blanket.
