Nobel Peace Prize? MOP It!

With a new 13,000 troop surge in Afghanistan and a move to accelerate the MOP bomb, along with the revelation (which should not be a revelation to anyone) that Iran has an advanced nuclear program, one might start to put together the puzzle pieces and find that the whole "dialog" thing isn't quite working the way it was planned early in the Obama administration.

What is the MOP? It's a new bomb, officially called the "massive ordinance penetrator". It'll be the largest non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal that carries 5,300 pounds of powerful explosives. The MOP is around 10 times extra potent than the weapon it's replacing, and is designed to break through the most shielded concrete bunkers.

Does "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb...Bomb, Bomb Iran" ring a bell? Nobel Peace Prize?
