US Making More Powerful Bomb to Hit Iranian Underground Facilities‎

RIA NovostiThe Pentagon US Making More Powerful Bomb to Hit Underground Facilities‎
13:19 28/01/2012 Pentagon is stepping up efforts to make a bomb capable of destroying Iran's most heavily fortified underground facilities, the Wall Street Journal said on Saturday referring to U.S. officials briefed on the plan.>>
The US Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) GBU-57/B  is probably not up to the job of destroying Iranian nuclear facilities so Dod is developing a new bomb to take out the the Iranian facility at Fordo. 

One report Rightardia read suggested the US would "lend a flight of B2 bombers" to deliver the ordinance. 

Rightradia cannot imagine the US giving Israel access to that  TOP SECRET aircraft, but Israel does not have a bomber aircraft capable of delivering a 30,000 pound bomb. The IDF F15 Strike Eagles can deliver 5,000 lb GBU-28 bombs. 

Should the US provide Israel with B2 bombers, even on a temporary basis, one would probably disappear and end up in China.
