U.S. Bombs Hawaii Island with B-2 and B-52 Bombers flown from Louisiana and Missouri !
B-2 bomber shown with 30,000 pound GBU-57 Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP)
believed to contains a large amount of depleted uranium and able to penetrate 200 feet of concrete before exploding, thus being capable to hit and destroy deeply buried targets like bunkers in Russia, Iran, etc.
Two B-2 “Batwing” Stealth Bombers and two B-52 Stratofortress bombers bombed the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area (PTA) in the middle of Hawaii Island.on April 2 or the week prior. According to a feature story in The Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Sat. 4/5/14 the planes dropped 14 inert practice bombs – eight 500 pound BDU-50s by the B-52s and six 2,000 pound BDU-56s by the B-2s. The story was also published in http://theaviationist.com/2014/04/03/b-52-b-2-global-strike/ . But not a word in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald and West Hawaii Today, the 2 daily newspapers on the island bombed. How come?
It’s not every day bombers fly 20 hour round-trips and spend nearly a million dollars in fuel to bomb PTA. These same Big Island dailies regularly run pro military propaganda stories written by the military touting things like school kids visiting PTA (without of course ever mentioning the kids possible exposure to depleted uranium at the contaminated base), so why not a story on our island being bombed by 2 B-52s from Barksdale A.F. B. in Louisiana and 2 B-2s from Whiteman A.F.B. in Missouri? Go figure! According to the Air Force, it was a coordinated range operation which included low approach training.
Training for what? A bunker buster attack on Iran, Syria, Russia, North Korea? Just the cost of fuel alone used in these bombing missions could have fed a lot of hungry people.
