Impending war with Iran. MOP's have been requested by the Pentagon. Your thoughts.

The Pentagon has requested 4 Massive Ordnance Penetrators. These super bunker busters are designed to strike deeply buried targets. It appears strikes are imminent.

This was also discussed early this am on Fox news.

  • TOO LONG! Just do it already and get our guys and gals home already. I'm tired of this president appearing to be weak. Just do what needs to be done. Quit waiting for polls to tell you what to do. The reason Desert Storm was so successful is that daddy Pres. Bush trusted his military commanders, Stormin' Norman and Gen. Powell, to make a strategic plan that would work and then go and do. BO needs to look at why that worked and why Viet Nam didn't and then go do what daddy Bush did.

  • I agree Carpy. We should be prepared for possible repercussions though. Russia, China and Venezuala will not like this.

  • Oh no Carpy, I hope not. Iran's psycho leader scares me. NK is a joke compared to that guy.

  • Desert Storm didn't solve anything. Bush jr, had to invade Iraq again, and we are still there.
    What did that accomplish?

    Get a history book. The current war is the SECOND time we have been in Iraq. Didn't pick that up in school, huh?
