Posted on 11/16/2011 3:35:38 AM PST by Strategy
The Obama administration is considering arming Qatar with huge bunker buster bombs, raising the possibility of an American-Israel-Arab attack on Iran.
The U.S. Air Force has received a shipment of 30,000-pound bombs, six times larger than those now in use, which can penetrate concrete bunkers. Iran has buried new nuclear plants in rocky mountainous areas and has buried them so deep under concrete to minimize the damage of an aerial attack, even if bunker buster bombs are used.
The Air Force began receiving the new monster bombs in September, and Boeing may build as many as 16 of the weapons, a U.S. military spokesman told Bloomberg News.
The B-2 stealth bomber will carry the bombs, which give "the war-fighter increased capability against hardened and deeply buried targets," according to Air Force Lieutenant General James Kowalski.

The Qataris have a tiny air force with a strike force of about a dozen French built Mirage-2000s. Can’t see them doing much.
Do you think President Obama will attack Iran?
If so, do you think it has more to do with trying to get reelected than keeping nukes away from Iran?
We have a large air base outside Doha. I don’t see how the Qataris weigh in this except for being the landlords.
I remember the LAST time a democratic President decided to attack Iran.
Hope it turns out better than the PEANUT Initiative ....LOL
i think he is more interested in keeping power than keeping Iran nuclear weapon free. nothing about this man makes me believe he has any interests outside his own power and ego. He lacks the discipline, knowledge, critical thinking skills and the willpower to be a good president. That said, he is not going to be easy to defeat. He created a whole new class of people with hands out to the govt.
The Obama administration is considering arming Qatar with huge bunker buster bombs, raising the possibility of an American-Israel-Arab attack on Iran....or more probably, an Obamanation-Arab-Iranian attack on Israel.
