This is a slap in the face to the Nobel Prize Committee, or is it? Maybe the announcement about the MOP (massive ordnance penetrator) bomb was intentionally delayed until after the Obama became a Nobel Prize Winner.

The MOP is actually quite in the spirit of Alfred Nobel himself. He's among a long line of scientists who thought they could create a weapon that would be scary enough to deter fighting. His weapon, dynamite — which I should note, he originally developed for construction crews — of course only enhanced war.

I wonder what the fate of this MOP will be?

Obama will facilitate transfer of the technology to the Iranians, just like Clinton facilitated the transfer of MIRV technology to the Chicoms (Nowadays, of course, Chicoms means Chicago Communists).
