According to Israeli newspaper Ha’Aretz, the US has been shipping hundreds of bunker-busting bombs to this small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, where they occupy an Air Base.  This could be evidence for an American strike upon Iran to thwart their nuclear program.  There are few different ways of looking at this:  Could it be that this is a defensive move to quell a retaliation on Israel should they attack Iran’s sites.  The Obama administration has made it clear that they intend on making sanctions tougher on Iran before they would ever consider a military option.  However, as evidenced by recent diplomatic trips to Israel on the part of the U.S., a rift has grown between the eternal allies.  If the Americans get the impression that a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities is imminent, would the best outcome be ultimately an Israeli strike or American one?
