First, you'd be doing this up in space, near the critical intercept point,
not down on earth. Second, a nuke big enough to crack a colony would still
do less ecological damage than a colony impact.

I think Delaz's claim that the existance of the GP02 is a violation of the
Antarctic Treaty is just propoganda. As 0080 and 0083 show, both Zeon and
the Federation have nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them. The only
thing the treaty prohibits is for the Feds or Zeon to use them against each
