Massive Ordnance Air Blast

Something new in Afghanistan:  the USA used a Massive Ordnance Air Blast, or as it's also known, the "Mother of All Bombs."  This was dropped on a cave complex used by terrorists for sanctuary.  The bomb is so large that it likely collapsed the caves and buried hit the terrorists hiding inside.  Even if the caves did not collapse, the concussive strength of the blast is so great that it could kill terrorists inside the caves.  It is the biggest bomb in the US arsenal which is non-nuclear.

So what has the reaction been to the use of this weapon?  Basically, it has been just what you would expect.  A great many on the left are denouncing the use of the weapon as overkill and unnecessary.  Apparently, the libs like it better when the air force drops bombs that are ineffective.  The reality, however, is something different.  America now has a weapon that allows the destruction of previously sheltered terrorist hideouts.  As with the Tomahawk missiles used in Syria, today's blast shows that the USA is now prepared to use its military might to achieve its aims on the battlefield.

It's just so nice to have a president who is not afraid of using the power of the USA to fight evil.
