Way back when, gentleman showed me a picture of a group men standing in front of a hotel. Being something of a history nerd I said, "Is that the King David?"

"Yep."

"How long before it was blown up?"

"About five minutes."

I didn't ask any further questions.

B-52 bombload dropped with pinpoint precision. Disclaimer: damage radius may be slightly larger than a pinpoint.
