Look Ma, Those Hamas Terrorists Were "Kissed" by America

Well hot damn, da evil joooos went after Hamas with US supplied "new and improved" bunker busters. They recently received their shipment and "just had to try 'em out".

The Israel Air Force used a new bunker-buster missile that it received recently from the United States in strikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, The Jerusalem Post learned on Sunday.

The missile, called GBU-39, was developed in recent years by the US as a small-diameter bomb for low-cost, high-precision and low collateral damage strikes[...]

The GPS-guided GBU-39 is said to be one of the most accurate bombs in the world. The 113-kg. bomb has the same penetration capabilities as a normal 900-kg. bomb, although it has only 22.7 kg. of explosives. At just 1.75 meters long, its small size increases the number of bombs an aircraft can carry and the number of targets it can attack in a sortie.

Tests conducted in the US have proven that the bomb is capable of penetrating at least 90 cm. of steel-reinforced concrete. The GBU-39 can be used in adverse weather conditions and has a standoff range of more than 110 km. due to pop-out wings.

I realize Israel frequently purchases military type items from the US but does my heart good to think good ole "Made in the USA' bombs are being used in this round of "kill Hamas" bombing.
