31. Sounds like re-election propaganda
stiva ,   usa   (09.23.11)
32. if this was a secret how did i know this 2 years prior
bernard ross ,   st anns bay, jamaica   (09.23.11)
33. GBU-28
Hi68 ,   Tel Aviv   (09.23.11)
That story was already been published after Wikileaks released the US State Department cables. It's not new or exclusive at all, so what's all the mess about?
34. They're just as good against Hamas, Hizbullah...
William ,   Israel   (09.23.11)
who are trying to keep their rockets in fortified silos away from the IAF sorties. Are you sure the bunker busters were meant for Iran? Was it specifically mentioned by the US this was the intention? Besides, what if it was? Planning is part of military preparedness. Just like when the US sends the 6th fleet to the Arabia Gulf.
35. #11 - can't be worse than the Democratic damage to the US
William ,   Israel   (09.23.11)
The sub-prime housing crisis which just brought the global economic system to its knees began in the White House when Clinton was in office.
36. #14 - Israeli technology is used on ALL weapons you cited
William ,   Israel   (09.23.11)
including the F-22. Israeli technology is a huge component. #6's comment was regarding Leftist views that the US bankrolls Israel and provides the protection she needs to exist...and should end aid today.
37. #18 - many people swear Israel has nukes
William ,   Israel   (09.23.11)
and to date, she's never threatened to use them. Israel is admired by other military because she acts intelligently and maturely. Israel doesn't act like insane Mullahs, which incidentally is driving Erdogan nuts.
38. #22 - Your side made the claim first
William ,   Israel   (09.23.11)
Rabid Leftist continue to claim that Obama is succumbing to the Jewish voters, and that AIPAC is so strong they even dictate when the President can use the restroom. All lies of course, which you have alluded to by indirectly blaming Jews for these outlandish accusations. Typical of self-absorb liberals.
39. Why is Israel waiting?
ghj ,   Passaic, USA   (09.23.11)
I don't know why Israel is waiting to use them.
40. Phil # 17
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (09.23.11)
Taiwan was a friend that we threw under the bus to suck up to China. China and Russia would turn on us in a heartbeat if they thought it would be to their advantage. China is friendly only because they want to sell us goods now that they have taken so many of our jobs. Jobs given to them by our greedy corporations with the blessings of our greedy government at the expense of you and me.
41. Such whining in these talkbacks!
Cameron ,   USA   (09.23.11)
42. William
Malcolm Blankenship ,   US   (09.23.11)
Then why is the F-22 off-limits to Israel. Why is there a x-band radar with AMericans only protecting your skies if Israel has the tech. You know you want to say it....Israel is the best at eerything. LOL. Wrong, reading 3000 text is blowing up your ego.
43. To: No. 22
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.23.11)
What would you like us to count? The number of eligible Jews in the United States who turn out to vote? Over 99%. Or do you prefer that we count the number of Jewish Nobel Prize winners? We dominate that, too. Or perhaps you would like us to count the number of Jewish Congressional Medal of Honor winners (18). We don't "over-estimate" our importance. If anything, we modestly acknowledge our contributions to humankind and civilization. Care to tell us what the ersatz "Palestinians" have contributed to civilization or humankind? (Hint: Terror doesn't count.)
44. To: No. 2009
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.23.11)
In 2006, Israel worried far too much about civilian loss of life and collateral damage. That will not happen again.
45. To: No. 42
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.23.11)
Do you think you know everything in Israel's arsenal? More fool you.
46. to 11
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (09.24.11)
How would you know BTW?
47. to 18
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (09.24.11)
Israel has had the bombs for years.
48. to 43
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (09.24.11)
Biggest welfare recipient in the world. No mean feat Sarah.
49. Response to #28
nadya ,   CA., US   (09.24.11)
Yes it disturbs me. The Jews are 2% of the US population and yet they influence decisions for the other 98%. Many of the 98% absolutely disagree with so many decisions that are made in their favor! Money talks and its criminal the influence that AIPAC has over our congressional leaders.
50. sarah
Malcolm Blankenship ,   US   (09.24.11)
hasham himself has no clue what the US has in its arsenal and it is no doubt greater and more powerful than anything israel can fathom. Best if israel does stray. keep reading the old book. Fool.
51. 55 is not enough against Hezbollah
Shlomo Glickstein ,   US   (09.24.11)
Hezbollah has over 600 bunkers. And many of them are decoys.
52. to 51
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (09.24.11)
That's ok-Israel has decoys for the decoy bunkers.
53. 50 fool
john Darren ,   cairns-Australia   (09.24.11)
So you like to insult Hashem?That is a very big and stupid mistake.
54. "Bunker Busters"
LaGrande ,   Lakeland, USA   (09.25.11)
This is a #55 delivery of the original agreed upon #100 sold to Israel by the Bush administration. No big deal really except for the political implications. Israel is well capable of refining the technology for specific intended targets. Again the "deal" was struck by the Bush administration so make what you will of the consummation timing of the sale.
