One of the amusing and contemptibly ignorant things being said in the media today is the use of the phrase above. Once again, this kind of expressed ignorance fosters the impression that a crippling attack on what may or may not be an Iranian nuclear weapons program would consist of a one time attack by a few dozen aircraft. IMO that would not be the case. In fact what would be involved would be an aviation and missile campaign that would necessairly include hundreds or thousands of air and missile sorties.
B-2 and B-1 bombers, B-52 bombers, missile strikes, naval air and tactical air flying from Saudi Arabia, search and rescue operations for downed aircrew, all this would be involved. pl
