Bunker Buster Bombs Ratchet Up Pressure On Iran

  • Let’s blow up a nation because global Zionists don’t like it. But let’s turn a blind eye to Israel’s 300 illegal nukes and its oppression of Palestinians. And never mind most Jews are Obama-pushing Democrats. The first and foremost duty of conservatives is to revere Jews and Israel, especially if, like Mead, their bread and butter are paid for by rich Jewish donors.

    Mead is a shameless whore.

  • An EMP burst @ 100km altitude that destroyed their electrical infrastructure would be much easier to do, have a higher degree of completeness, make it far more difficult to restart the project, and require zero costs for R&D. Are we interested in taking out their nuclear weapons infrastructure – or in making a political statement?

    • And cause a tremendous amount of collateral damage and unnecessary human suffering.

  • If one doesn’t work drop another one right behind it.

    As I read this story I get the sense that there may have been a minor tweak to the bomb’s electronics, but essentially this is diplomacy by press release, and there is little chance that one will be used. Still, this is not the Obama who failed to support the Iranian revolution evidently because he thought he could do quid pro quo with the mullahs. His response to the Nork brat’s tantrum seems to indicate he may have learned that it takes two to engage in ‘smart diplomacy’. So I will believe it if I see it, and I ain’t betting our post colonial college professor is going to plant one on them. .
