Explosives in Perspective

In an interview with Aaron Brown, David Kay makes an alarming point that can be translated into the amount of explosives now available to the insurgents.:
"Iraq had, and it's a frightening number, two-thirds of the total conventional explosives that the US has in its entire inventory."
Think about it. Two-thirds of the entire US inventory. Doing a controlled detonation of that much explosive over a reasonable time could have local environmental consequences. And regardless of how much we may have destroyed since the invasion, the insurgency is sure to have enough for years to come.
