That it is imminent...
Biggest Bunker Buster Ever Is In Production

After nearly a decade of development, the U.S. Air Force has ordered eight MOP (massive ordnance penetrator) GBU-57A/B bunker buster bombs. These 14 ton weapons cost $3.5 million each. In the last few years, several B-2 bombers have been equipped to carry these weapons (two bombs per B-2). This was apparently meant to send a message to Iran and North Korea. There were no known targets for such a weapon in Iraq or Afghanistan, but there are plenty of such targets in Iran and North Korea.


These bombs were designed specifically for Iran and NKorea. If only 8 were ordered, it might just be for Iran... For NKorea, it would need a whole lot more.

IMO this is a big sign that they will attack Iran soon, in the next few months maybe even weeks... or it is to test them... we shall see...

Update : Apparently, they were ordered in APRIL... so they might be soon ready.

On 7th April 2011, the USAF ordered eight MOPs plus supporting equipment for $28 million.


Update 2 : MOPping Up: The USA’s 30,000 Pound Bomb

The program would appear to be in the late stages of weapon development and testing, with low-rate production beginning to ramp up.

Aug 2/11: Boeing in St Louis, MO receives a $32.1 million cost-plus-incentive-fee contract modification for an aircraft closure redesign; plus 8 MOPs, 16 separation nuts; and 8 MOP loading adapters. Work will be performed at St. Louis, MO. The Air Armament Center EBDK/EBDJ at Eglin Air Force Base, FL manages the contract (FA8681-09-C-0280, PO0022).

April 7/11: Low rate production begins. Boeing in St Louis, MO receives a $28.3 million cost-plus-incentive-fee contract modification for 8 massive ordnance penetrators, 16 separation nuts, 8 MOP loading adapters, and an aft closure redesign. Work will be performed at St. Louis, MO. The ACC/EDBK/EDBJ in Eglin Air Force Base, FL manages the contract (FA8681-09-C-0280, P00019).

It seems it's not ready for war yet, but real soon it will be. My guess is that the US has waited all this time for this weapon... and won't attack Iran till they have it... because taking out Iran's bunkers only by air with current armament is impossible... you would need to use nuclear bunker buster... and you can't do that.

I sure hope this is just the tail end of a program that was working toward completion anyway. They couldn't possibly be stupid enough to continue on with any conquest ideas at this point. The world would just about invade us across our own beaches if we started another war with anyone who didn't attack us FIRST.....and so clearly, the rest of the world agrees.

Down the rabbit hole we go...and go...and go....

The article states:
"The enemy in those countries have no way of detecting a high flying B-52, much less a stealthy B-2".

That statement is certainly false

Plus, Your headline is also false. "Confirmation" would mean that we learned something as fact about Iran and North Korea that we didn't know or fully know. For us to confirm--what we all knew--that we had a few big bombs in the works is not confirmation in the true meaning of the word as you used it in the headline.

Finally, the article quotes Iran and North Korea as our "enemies." Are they really?

Iran is VERY dangerous
if they are allowed to make these suit case bombs
they will get them into a country and blow up a whole city..

Or an EMP blast, blow it up over the * infidels*...

Iran has to be neutralized at some point..

That time is getting close..


Iran's leaders do not care if millions of there people get killed
in the way of their agenda of wiping Israel off the map.

(N. Korea kim jongs um's and i'lls LOVE their country
like a religion they do not want to loose it, a whole other
discussion.. At some point they to will have to be reigned in.)

But they could also be used to take out Qudaffi. They have bombed his bunker over and over again and the French just can't seem to get him.

I think a major world war is in the works with Iran/Pakistan/China/North Korea. Governments are needing a way to fix the worldwide recession and high unemployment that Europe and America are facing. Sadly, the only way governments know how to do this is by instituting a draft and killing off millions of the young adults.

On the bright side, if you do survive the war economic conditions will certainly get better.

Really? NKorea and Iran anti-air capabilities are a joke.

A confirmation for us at ATS... the fact that the US military is ordering those MOPs... they have no other use than to be used against Iran and NKorea. And Iran is the most likely.

The people are not, but the governments, certainly.

Good thinking, totally forgot about Qaddaffi.

We are all going to die at one point, life continues with what we achieve while we are here. It is sad and pathetic that people like you see achievement in a scorched earth.

What, in another 10 years time

Im sure one of the US military men serving on French aircraft carriers in Libya will probly get the job of dropping one on Qudaffi.
www.cbsnews.com...



But even though the U.S. has withdrawn its forces from the front lines of the NATO campaign, a handful of Americans serving on this French navy carrier remain at the forefront of the action.

They are members of a little-known French-American naval exchange program in which U.S. officers spend time in the French navy — known as the "Marine Nationale" — and French officers spend time in the U.S. navy.

You obviously know very little about the countries you are exhorting people should be destroyed. Keep on supping the Kool-Aid.

When will the US pull its horns in and stop trying to run the world. Mind your own effing business and go home.

People need to understand that the Iranian ruler Abigiblablajihad or whatever his name is thinks he's on a God sanctioned mission to prepare the world for the antichrist (mahdi). That means pressing the world towards chaos. Whether he is going to achieve that or not, he thinks it's his mission to.

Lol, you are phunny,
they cant even fly a Helicopter


They need this Bunker Buster for the Homeland Security
but never ever for the Iran!

The USA are crazy and stupid but not suicidal,
a War with the Iran is impossible to Win!
(with common weapons)

They will do this in a old Fashion
with Heroin and AIDS!
(the Iran have more than 5Mio. Heroin Addicts, 80% of them infected with HIV/ or HCV)
