General Peterson: Sixty or seventy...

General Peterson: ...thousand. Seventy thousand dead.
Chief of Staff Hayden Sinclair: Oh.
General Peterson: One teaspoon of this hits the floor, it's lethal up to... a hundred feet. One teaspoon of this shit detonated in the atmosphere... will kill every living organism in an eight-block radius. Get the point?
