Here. At one level, this is not that complicated. Israel really cannot permit Iran to get nuclear weapons, because Iran is ruled by people who say they want to wipe Israel off the map and they don't appear to be kidding. Iran is working as fast as they can to get nuclear weapons. The US is the only power besides Israel that is at all likely to be able to stop Iran. We need to do something, and soon. A bunch of Obama happy talk will not do it. Time is running out on this one. I'm not too hopeful though because I think US foreign policy is now in the hands of people who actually believe what their professors told them in their Neo-Colonialism class in college. Witness Honduras.
I hope Israel can get their hands on some of these, though I don't know if they have planes that could deliver them. I wonder if parts of them are made here in San Diego.
