Israel’s New Bunker Buster Missile

The U.S. military or its contractors long ago released videos of bunker buster bombs. While the Israeli military has requested advanced bunker buster bombs from the United States, the Israelis have also been manufacturing its own technology. They recently released this impressive video depicting a new concrete-busting missile which would presumably obviate the need for aircraft to fly over certain targets.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei last week said “actions speak louder than words.” That may not be the maxim of Western diplomats who prefer to kick the can down the road, but it seems the Supreme Leader’s words might ring true with the Israelis, who now signal the road has run out. If I were an Iranian nuclear scientist, I’d take out life insurance now.
