On to Tehran, part xxiv

While US officials "remain divided" over Iran, it looks like the big boy on the Mid East block is lining up the dominoes for an eventual strike, just in case it is deemed necessary.

Thus, according to Reuters, Israel is in the process of "buying" from the US "$319 million worth of air-launched bombs, including 500 'bunker busters' that could be effective against Iran's underground nuclear facilities."

And while it is briefly mentioned in the Reuters piece, it's worth highlighting that Israel really isn't buying anything; the money for the bombs is coming out of the US aid budget to its "special friend."

Outsourcing US policy, anyone?
