The Voice of Russia ^ | November 15, 2011

Posted on 11/15/2011 10:43:38 AM PST by Fennie

US Air Forces have received super-heavy bunker buster bombs, a spokesman with Pentagon lieutenant-colonel Jack Miller told reporters Tuesday.

He said that Boeing, had begun to supply the bombs to the Air Force Global Strike Command in September.

The bombs will be carried by B-2 bombers. Each bomb weights 13.6 tons and has a built in satellite navigation system.

Some experts note that this type of bomb which is capable of breaking a 18 meter thick concrete walls, is perfect weapon for attacking nuclear facilities in Iran.

So drop an EMP to kill surveillance, bunker buster to start hole, another missile to clear the rubble then alternate bunker busters and regular explosives to dig out the rats.

They’ll be cut as budget savings and then destroyed before they can be used.

Nope, Obama is bought and paid for by the Saudis (Sunni). They will use Americans to do their dirty work against the hated Shiites (iran).
