No Bunker Buster for You!

Israel and the U. S. have a new arms sales agreement.  It does not include the Massive Ordnance Penetrator, the so-called bunker-buster bomb,  that might destroy Iran’s nuclear enrichment site at Fordo, which is a couple of hundred feet beneath a mountain.

Israel would not be able to use the bunker buster with its existing aircraft, since the thing weighs 30,000 pounds.  It would need a B-2 stealth bomber.  We’re not selling them one of those either.

We are providing them advanced refueling tanker planes that Bush 43 refused to sell them, as well as missiles that can take out an enemy’s air defense system.  Both would be necessary for an attack against Iran.
