Military planes loaded with nuclear weapons were flying around the US, could be getting ready to fly out to Iran.

Doubt it. Highly.
that would be a nice change but the administration doesn’t have the balls.
With this President? No WAY!
To Israel maybe, but not Iran.
A test run no doubt.....in a B-52.
Air America? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA April 1st is over.
Nope... that task would be given to the B-2’s or more likely a Sub.
Yea, they are.
The bombing begins in 5mins. /s
If so we would be crazy to spread the news.
With this president, I would believe it — that he would make a gift of some (undetonated) nukes to the Iranians to jump-start their nuclear program.
Don’t think so— especially considering we have ICBMs
You’re correct on the load,...nukes. The target, however, is a Tea Party rally in Arizona! Let’s get the facts straight shall we?
I doubt that we would know nukes are on the way to Iran before Iran finds out first-hand.
The only way nukes are on the way to Iran is if Obama sold them some.
They would more likely be headed for the Koran-Burning Pastors Church, than to Iran.
The only people the U.S. government will attack, are U.S. citizens.
If so then it means Obama is shipping them nuclear weapons.
“With this President? No WAY!”
Do you really, seriously, think that Obama is in charge?
I concurr absolutely on your opinion that he would be wanting to use them on Israel.
This Obama experiment is going to be way to expensive to America. It was all out of hand well before this. The 12th Iman needs to vacate the White House.
... from a previous post
The anti American has summoned and started the assembly of the greatest force against America.
He has taken America into Jihad... and beyond.
The ME? ... consolidating it for his brethren with American fire power @ Americas expense.
His first speech in Cairo... His speech in Indonesia included references against the Jews.
He has more than shown himself to be on side with muslims. Heck! He shares their same mantra....death to America.
Lose the ME? I dont thinkso....consolidate it in the name of Allah.
For Obama? Its the ..current policy from the white house.....the marginalization and destruction of America.
Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity developed during adolescence in Indonesia, and he feels his angst against white and America....DeSouza went to great lengths to detail this in his book.
Its all about death to America....death to the great satan!
from a previous posting, see second last paragraph...
His associations with the MB? Over 20 years of understudy to Wright and Farrakhan ties him to the people and philosophy, thus his endorsement of the coup... These are the same guys who are shooting at our troops.
His drive against America is demonstrated in his unfettered support of the OIC driven UN.
All his acts are supportive of Islam. They will march on Israel, and then guess what? YOU and ME.
Follow it out...
One of the prettiest sounds on earth is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007
The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.
His biological father was a Muslim.
Because his biological father was a Muslim the Islam world thinks he is a Muslim.
His stepfather was a Muslim.
As a child Barry was enrolled in school as a Muslim in Jakarta Indonesia. An Indonesian Madrasa.
Barack Hussein Obamas first and middle names are Arabic Muslim names.
Barack was the name for Mohammads horse. Husein, enough said.
Obama recited the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer, which includes a vow of fidelity to Islam, in flawless Arabic on a radio program. - Nikolos Kristoff, NYTs, 3-06-07 (***this one is a gottcha moment***)
On that same program he said he thinks the call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on earth.
Obama belonged to Rev. Wrights (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.
Obamas said that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.
President Obamas religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States the ideal place for the renewal of Islam.
Obama does not give gifts on Christmas.
Obama doesnt celebrate his birthday.
Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.
Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.
Christian symbol covered up during Obamas Georgetown speech
Obamas first major speech in office was a Muslim outreach speech in Cairo Egypt.
The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim, said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.
Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the days end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.
Obama tasked NASA with a mission of Muslim outreach.
Obama referred to his faith as my Muslim faith gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.
Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.
All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?
Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today
I be more likely to believe every plane we have capable of carrying a nuke is loaded up and heading out to sea to jettison those ‘pesky’ things. With this administration that scenario would be far more likely. “I’d like to teach the world to sing...” and all that Kumbaya stuff - gonna make ‘em love us or else.
The Young Turks guy? Really?
Last time i looked Obama is still POTUS TOTUS. So if B-52’s with nukes are heading for the Middle East the only logical conclusion is the target is Israel.
Why do you think that requires balls? All he has to do is issue an order.
Balls would be leading our troops into battle.
Maybe we are giving them to Iran to use.
As a former SAC airplane driver, I can say with certainty: Not a chance in Hell, and for many reasons.
He couldn't lead Boy Scouts to water on Oahu.
Dropping them on Iran will go a long way to stop terrorism around the world.
IF B-52s soon carry war loads against Iran -- which is doubtful -- they will be equipped with large numbers of standoff weapons such as cruise missiles, the Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW), and the winged version of the Small Diameter Bomb (SDB). In later phases, large JDAM smart bombs might be used once enemy air defense were out of commission and Iranian airspace was fully dominated by the US.
The key point is that B-52s could do a lot of damage to Iran at the outset of an air offensive without going inside Iranian air space and becoming vulnerable to its air defenses.
Launched from many miles outside of enemy territory, cruise missiles are now a standard part of US conventional warfare. They have extraordinary accuracy and are highly resistant to jamming and radar detection.
Flying low and being difficult to detect or stop, cruise missiles are especially useful against air defenses, command and control nodes, and other high value targets. Cruise missiles are often used in large numbers to "knock down the door" in the opening hours of an air offensive.
The JSOW, a large winged and guided glide bomb, is relatively new but has proved to be extraordinarily effective. It can glide for many miles and then, depending on the version, disperse guided bomblets against armor or infantry targets or deliver a devastating punch with a large two element bomb designed to destroy hardened targets.
The SDB is also winged and guided, but, unlike 1,000 lb JSOWs and JDAMs, its small size and weight (250 pounds) make it useful against small targets and in civilian areas. A B-52 can carry large numbers of SDBs. The small wings allow them to glide up to 70-80 kilometers when released from high altitude.
The SDB also has a hard front end that can punch through several feet of rock or concrete, and a warhead that does more concentrated damage per pound of explosive than the usual bomb composed of explosives in a thin metal casing.
It seems unlikely that the appearance of B-52s near Iran is anything more than a demonstration of US capabilities. As suggested above, even just ten or twenty B-52s can do a lot of damage in a few hours without ever getting inside Iran's air space. US interests are well-served by reminding Iran's mullahs of their vulnerabilities -- which is probably why the B-52s are on the move.
The administration is islamic now. The best thing is to get US troops out of the ME and let the Shia (Iran) and Sunni (Saudis and others0 kill each other. The oil (spice) will still flow because they have to eat.
There are no good guys or bad guys in the islamic middle east.
One Thing Mc Cain got right.
Silly rabbit - these are practice runs aimed at households known to possess anything more than one .22 single shot rifle and a box of 25 rounds.
KLAXON KLAXON KLAXON !
Seems to be a lot of Iran bombing warmongering going on out thar.
This happened over three years ago.
We only have 450 ICBMs left on Alert. Iran is not a strategic target and the cost of an ICBM launch and the resultant destruction of the Launcher is too costly to our deterrent force.
The use of tactical weapon/s is called for in this scenario.
More likely headed toward the Red States...
If there were (which I doubt), discussing it in public is a bad idea.
Loose Lips Sink Ships.
Did BO/BS agree to help Imanutjob?
He wouldn’t even waste his precious bodily fluids on that hell hole.
