How to use "Obliterated" in context?

When I was young and less informed, I thought obliteration meant getting rid of something completely. I had no concept of its other meaning- that something is so thoroughly destroyed that there is nothing left. Strangely enough, this definition is more accurate than the original one. Owing to progress, technology, and bombs, objects and places are now routinely obliterated. Gone are the days when an obliterated building was one that had been collapsed bywind or heavily damagedby fire. Today, obliteration typically means the complete destruction of an object, whether by fire,destroyer, or even hands.
