New War Budget

The new budget requested by the Pres., $50 billion, has within it a provision for $88 million to equip the B-2 stealth bomber with 30,000 pound bunker buster bombs. The White House told Congress the bombs were an "urgent request from commanders for their operational needs". Thinking...thinking....now where would we need such a bomb? Al-Anbar--not really! Baghdad? NAH! Afghanistan--probably not. then what would the "urgent operational needs" be?

These types of bombs would come in handy for the destruction of....say....nuke facilities. Could that be the "urgent operational need" the admin was speaking of? "Urgent"? But they would not be used as a diplomatic tool would they? Doubtful! So why then are they desperately needed? Just asking.
