Heavy machinery was brought in to help demolish a silo in Australia after a controlled explosion failed to bring the building down.

The silo, at an industrial site south west of Brisbane, was reduced to more than 4,000 tonnes of rubble after a jackhammer finished the job.

Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest difference.

Maybe they didn't have any Americans available at the moment. :p

No one get upset, it's just a joke.

those silos are VERY strong so much concrete in them and so thick not surprising this happened... someone obviously didn't do the math right or have the right facts about the structure

More like erect a building next to it, have a couple of talibans fly an airplane into it and then let both buildings crumble - the other one from the heat and the other one by magic.

Ooohhh oohhhh ooohhh, and then the Australian government can blame Greenland for having weapons of self destruction (aka Robin Williams :) ) and then invade the country and nick their raindeers for free

(and yeah, this was also a joke ... a poor one)
