WASHINGTON — Officials said the administration of President Barack Obama was not expected to ship advanced GBU-28 bunker-busters to Israel.
The officials said Obama himself offered to transfer the GBU-28 as well as the KC-135 refueling aircraft to Israel. They said the president, however, demanded an Israeli commitment not to attack Iran in 2012.
The president’s offer was relayed during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on March 5. Officials said Netanyahu said Israel would welcome the advanced U.S. platforms but could not commit to allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons.
They said the advanced weapon was in short supply in U.S. military stocks amid threats in Asia.

Logically, why should we be nervous over Iran since they have not initiated any attack towards any other country in over 200 years? And yes, the Persian Gulf War has been taken in consideration when making that statement. But no, I chose not to take the Iran hostage crisis in consideration.
That being said, it evidently is not the case when shifting our attention towards the previously mentioned pro-drone countries. Over 239 drone strikes were ordered under the Obama administration. Many of these attacks were carried out against the advice of U.S. Officials and Diplomats. In fact, that tendency has led the Obama Administration of being responsible for at least 85% of drone strikes around the world, particularly in Pakistan.
This is the same Obama that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Nevertheless, the Obama devotees might hide behind the ideology that peace cannot exist nor be implemented without war.
It is important to understand or remember that the U.S. did not only assist but also coordinated the launch of the Iranian Nuclear Program in the 50s. This program was maintained for decades, until the 1979 revolution.
This support was even symbolized and categorized as the “Atoms for Peace” Program, implemented in 1953 by Eisenhower. Let’s acknowledge that a program would not be complete without an appropriate inaugural speech. And where else but at the United Nation General Assembly can a prestigious one take place? In this case, the cleverly named “Atoms for Peace” speech quickly followed Eisenhower’s “Chance for Peace” speech.
The Empire Will Strike Back. It is just a question on which Empire will strike first.
