If I may beg the indulgences of you for the moment. Oh my this causes much of the concern to be because unlike the person who has posted above from me with the sarcasm I should state that I look at all of the issues from two sides and this is not the situation upon which is the exception to the life rule of two-sided looking of me. One side of this is that we must set them up the bomb and the other side of this is we must not set them up the bomb. I do not wish to be the judge of this but if I was the judge of this I would look at this from these sides.

The first side of this is that we should set them up the bomb. This side says that the concern upon which is noted is that if the nuclear missile silos of the Iranians are allowed to have existence in the pis of hell of fortification then they will use these on the allies such as Israel and Canada and the fallout of the nuclear waste could make the radioactive Wailing Wall or the radioactive Inuit both of which could cause much suffering to others in the world. From this side it seems as though it would be the necessity to set them up the bomb for which they do not cause the destruction. According to the article upon which is currently linked through the Telegraph.co.uk website the US of America has the 30,000 Labrador bomb upon which it can use to destroy these evil Ruskies...I mean Iranians to the oblivion and prevent the massive use of the weaponry.

The other side of this says look they have told us that they only wish to use this for the purposes of electricity and they seem very much legit. Why would these individuals do the lying to we? If we would set them up the bomb then they would not be able to have the electricity to watch the reruns of Maury and this would cause the dramatic decrease in the sale of American paternity tests to Iran. Do you wish to be the job killer, US of American Air Force Academy Football Team? I do not think you wish for this now do you.

One thing that I can be sure of is that this entire thread will be full of well thought out and purely rational postings such as the own of me. LAUGHTER OL who am I giving the jokings to? Of course it will not as I have seen this from two sides but others will see this from only one side. I do not wish to be the judge of this but do you think that we should do this threatening? I am asking you the Fark.com website and will send the results to the Head Airmaster for the consideration.

You are welcome.

Here's a radical idea WRT the iranian nuke: LET THEM HAVE THE DAMN THING.

Trying to stop a government from acquiring 70 year old tech is futile, unless you want to do something so extreme it'll put you in the company of Pol Pot. So the USAF drops a bunker buster on one of Iran's facilities. They'll just dig the next one deeper. Or put it beneath a school or hospital. Or trick the US into thinking it's beneath a school of hospital. Next time the US bombs they'll flood the world with pictures of mangled children.

Also, a US attack on Iran will provide the regime with another generation of islamist crazies. One would almost think somebody wants to make sure the US has en external enemy.

Seriously, the best way to deal with AWs like the iranian theocrats is to ignore them.

Alonjar: cgraves67: Does the 30,000lb refer to the static weight of the bomb or the explosive force?

I just checked up on 1ft round bars of steel. It's 384.5 lb/ft. At 20ft that's 7,690lb. A 1ft square bar is a little more than 400lb/ft, so it's roughly 8,100 lbs at 20ft. If the 30,000lb spec is the weight of the bomb, it is almost 4 times heavier than a solid chunk of steel of the same size. Not to mention gaps within the bomb assembly that reduce its overall density. This tends to indicate that the 1ft x 20ft dimension is wrong or that the 30,000lb spec refers to the explosive force or that it is made of materials much, much heavier than steel.

Id put my money on materials other than steel. The weapon drives itself into the ground with momentum, more weight will help with this. Also, its supposed to explode once it reaches depth... a steel bomb would help hold in some of that explosive force.

Beyond that though... the reason we use steel is because it is a nice trade off between weight and strength. There are a lot of other metals out there.


It is more than likely depleted uranium.

Seriously, leave them the fark alone. We can barely hold a country that has minimal infrastructure. Iran would be a disaster

The difference between Iranians and Afghans is that Iranians are capable of not acting like animals.

Just wondering, really, but do you have some theory in which a successful military operation against Iran depends on the Iranians acting nicer than other countries that we've attacked or invaded?


Who knows. I'm not predicting that crap.

HotIgneous Intruder: Talk is cheap.
Use it or GTFO.


Talk is all just a minor sideshow, along with the growing alarums and excursions leading up to Nov. 6th. Then everything (as it pertains to the U.S.) dies down. As far as Israel is concerned, who knows? The street seems to have it that there is no way Iran's getting nukes, and if nobody else takes care of business, Israel will. They've done it once before, no reason to believe they won't do it again. The question of the nuclear genie being let out of the bottle is one that once again throws the whole question wide open. So I guess we're back where we started.

Wake me when you have something impressive. They were making those back in W2.


They may or may not have had something of that size and weight in WWII (I honestly don't know and don't care enough to google it)...but remember that now they have the ability to drop this thing into a toilet bowl from 30,000' up....

Eh, if you think of it as 15 tons, or 1/125 of a Hiroshima bomb, it doesn't seem so big. We used to have nuclear artillery shells with WAY more explosive force than that. And depth charges (light fuse and get away fast).


Keep in mind - the 30,000 pounds is the total weight of the bomb, not the amount of explosives.
It's "only" packing like 5300 pounds of boom - the rest is inertial penetration capability.

but the thing you must remember is that it's not just a big-ass bomb, but the shape of it, the materials, and the guts inside are what make this remarkable. Any chump can load up a huge bomb casing with tons of high explosives, but they're all going to kaboom either in an airburst and knock over all the soft stuff, or mcBOOM when it hits the ground and make a big crater. Your reinforced concrete bunker, buried many feet below that surface, however, may be shaken but still in business.
