The US Defense Department has notified Congress of plans to sell 1,000 bunker-buster bombs to Israel in a deal worth 77 million dollars.What exactly is going on that they would need something like that? Can you think of anything?
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced the possible arms sale of the GBU-39 small diameter smart bombs on its website. The deal still requires approval from Congress.
The bombs, which are touted as more precise than larger munitions, have the capacity to penetrate 1.8 meters (six feet) of reinforced concrete and carry a 50 percent probability of reaching a target within five meters.
Get ready for an epic FAIL. Our troops in Iraq attacked by missiles, gas prices surge so high our economy can't function, terrorist attacks and the bunker busters won't even do the job - because the Iranians were prepared for such an attack and built the structures too deep.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the bombs could help Israel in a possible strike against Iran's nuclear sites, some of which are protected by bunker-like structures.
Last month, Israel's Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that his country will never accept Iran developing a nuclear weapons capability and refused to rule out "any options."
My guess - late November.
