Ominous message? US shows B-2 stealth bomber drop bunker busters amid Iran tensions (VIDEO)

A blockbuster high-quality video showing a Northrop B-2 Spirit stealth bomber dropping massive, precision-guided bunker buster bombs was shared online by the US Air Force even as US rallies its forces in the Persian Gulf.

The American heavy strategic bomber is pictured flying in an undisclosed location before slow-motion footage shows the release of projectiles. The bunker buster bombs are then seen exploding over a mountainous location from a number of angles.

“B-2 dropping two GBU-57, Massive Ordnance Penetrators (MOP). Each weapon weighs 30,000 lbs, with pinpoint accuracy, and holds deeply buried targets at risk,” Whiteman Air Force Base said in a tweet sharing the video taken by a USAF stealth bomber pilot.

The timing of the video’s release comes as the US musters its forces in the Persian Gulf amid a tense standoff with Iran. The troubling development was dubbed “psychological warfare” by the Islamic Republic, which vowed to protect its sovereignty by any means necessary.

With Washington still failing to support its belief that Tehran was preparing to “conduct offensive operations against US forces and our interests” with any evidence, Donald Trump on Friday denounced speculations of US preparation for war as “fake news.”

With all of the Fake and Made Up News out there, Iran can have no idea what is actually going on!
