what about the machine you sitting in front of?
without -y flag yum asks if you mean your input serious

if you think one second about dependencies are solved you know what happens
you try tu remove glibc, all packages depending on glibc are resursive resloved
and finally one of them is yum - what happens: it stops

and that is why yum is and should be protected

how would this delete the bootloader in the MBR?
you do not need the grub-package installed to have a bootloader
