Bunker Buster Bomb

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-06/heavier-bunker-buster-bomb-ready-for-combat-general-says.html 

The Air Force has a new bunker buster bomb.  They have been working on new bunker buster bombs off an on for ten years.  These bombs are designed to penetrate thick concrete and steel bunkers and even deep into soil and rock before they explode.  Rogue nations like Iran and North Korea place their nuclear weapons programs in deep underground bunkers in the belief that they are safe from detection and destruction.

The US Air Force should have special squadrons for these weapons.  One of them should be practicing hitting the bunker complexes in Iran.  The other should be practicing hitting the bunker complexes in North Korea.  On the day the President decides to finally take action against our enemies we should not have to wait for six months while they ramp up production and begin training.

Similar bunkers should be constructed here so that we can test our bunker busters and insure they will work properly.  Plans need to be drawn up to learn how many bombs will be needed and what kinds of support units will be needed.  There should be no delay between the order to attack and the time the attack commences; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
