    Whether its for Iran or not, its always useful to have something like this in the arsenal. And if it did ever come to a US strike on Iranian nuclear facilities, this weapon in tandem with the B-2 should prove highly effective.

    Yup. If you discover a need for your military, address it.

    Even if Iran's facilities are what brought attention to this need today, this weapon would be useful in the future against any deep hardened target.
