TTLF: Air Force Preparing To Bomb Iran?

That is the conspiracy going around at the DU and some other progressive (read 5 short of a six pack) sites. You just KNOW that this caused another liberal hissy fit, don’t you?

PALMDALE, Calif., July 19, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) — The U.S. Air Force’s B-2 stealth bomber would be able to attack and destroy an expanded set of hardened, deeply buried military targets using a new 30,000 pound-class penetrator weapon that Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) has begun integrating on the aircraft.

The new Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP), which is being developed by The Boeing Company, is a GPS-guided weapon containing more than 5,300 pounds of conventional explosives inside a 20.5-foot long enclosure of hardened steel. It is designed to penetrate dirt, rock and reinforced concrete to reach enemy bunker or tunnel installations. The B-2 is capable of carrying two MOPs, one in each weapons bay.

"This integration contract is part of Northrop Grumman’s on-going effort to ensure that the B-2 remains capable of delivering a decisive blow to an increasingly sophisticated enemy," said Dave Mazur, vice president of long-range strike for the company’s Integrated Systems sector. "It is the first step in helping the Air Force make this new weapon available for operational use on the B-2."

Seems like a pretty good idea to me. If the need arises, the USAF will be able to deliver a devastating non-nuclear attack to sites such as the nuclear reactors, some of which are buried underground, in Iran, or against harded or buried command posts for al Qaeda and Osama in the mountain regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The military plans. They try to be proactive, not completely reactive. It is better to be ahead of the curve, then catching up, eh? But, in Liberal World, any upgrade of offensive strike power is immediately deemed Bush war mongering.

But, it does get more interesting

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Al Qaeda’s safe haven in northwestern Pakistan is largely inaccessible to outside forces and unlikely to be eliminated soon by the U.S. or Pakistani military, top intelligence officials said on Wednesday.

Sounds like a pretty good place to see 5,300 pounds of explosives delivered in a penetration bomb dropped from a stealthy platform many, many times, eh?
