September 29 - Obamaís bomb deal with Israel raises the spectre of war

Article: Wars And Rumors Of Wars
 

Barack Obama may be widely regarded at home as the least pro-Israeli president in decades, but he has secretly okayed giving the Jewish state a bunch of special bunker-busting bombs Ė ideal for destroying Tehranís ruling mullahsí nuclear ambitions and so powerful that George W. Bush blocked handing them over.

Capable of penetrating deep beneath the surface, the bunker-busters would be crucial for any air strikes at Iran nuclear sites. Mr. Netanyahu has wanted the bunker-busters for years and, as first reported by Newsweek, Mr. Obama agreed to hand over 55 of the sophisticated and powerful weapons.

Given Israelís track record of pre-emptive bombing strikes to destroy nuclear sites in neighbouring nations and Iranís ambitious and suspicious nuclear program, the American bunker-busters may increase the chance of another Middle East war. Iranís unpredictable and bellicose President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has vowed to wipe Israel off the map. Iran continues to defy international sanctions with a clandestine nuclear program. Meanwhile, Mr. Netanyahu now has the means to carry out his threat that ďIran will not acquire nuclear arms, and this implies everything necessary to carry this out.Ē

Israel also has twice launched pre-emptive and devastating air strikes to destroy Arab nuclear reactors before they could produce weapons-grade bomb stock. In 1981, a daring long-distance strike destroyed an Iraqi reactor, ending Saddam Husseinís pursuit of nuclear weapons.

In 2007, Israeli warplanes bombed a Syrian reactor of North Korean design. Striking Iran, both further away and further along the nuclear-weapons development path and with widely dispersed and deeply-buried sites, would be more challenging militarily. The bunker-busters may be a hammer Israel canít use unless it has the tacit approval of Washington. Itís not clear if Mr. Obama retained the right to approve any use of the bunker-busters.
