"Although nuclear weapons are complicated technological devices, it is generally agreed that a determined, well-trained subnational group could in time build a crude nuclear device with yields on the order of a few to tens of kilotons. The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were less than 20 kilotons."
