Better to have it and not need it...

...than to need it and not have it...

Call it Plan B for dealing with Iran, which recently revealed a long-suspected nuclear site deep inside a mountain near the holy city of Qom.

The 13.6-tonne behemoth — called the “massive ordnance penetrator,” or MOP — will be the largest non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal and carry 2,400 kilograms of explosives.

The bomb is about 10 times more powerful than the weapon it is designed to replace.

"The Pentagon is speeding up delivery of a colossal bomb designed to destroy hidden weapons bunkers"

You can bet the Iranians & N.K.s are speeding up production of their own.

This could get interesting real quick.

First you drop the MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs), then you MOP up.

Wax on, wax off.
