Devine Strake, Bush’s simulated nuke test, is STILL on the table.

Two agencies, the Pentagon's Defense Threat Reduction Agency and the Energy Department's National Nuclear Security Administration, say that Divine Strake (the name, they insist, has no meaning) will help the government learn more about destroying underground bunkers being used by U.S. enemies.
Their plan is to detonate 700 tons of ammonium nitrate, a non-nuclear explosive, to measure the likely impact of both conventional and nuclear explosions. Salt Lake Tribune via Randi Rhodes
