USA people love USA military might.

Trump firing off missiles and big bombs will increase his approval rating. If a president is struggling, the best thing for him is to enter into wars, his people will then be united behind him.

He has certainly been doing a lot of extraordinary things to distract the public from the Russian collusion.

A MOAB could kill a lot of people in a cave.

The Massive Ordnance Air-Burst bomb is rightly called the MOAB.

I agree, perhaps not for the same reason though. A video like this may titillate some, but people do need to see the effects of their governments polices if they are ever expected to be able to make informed decisions.

Photographers risked their lives bringing back the true carnage of WW1. Not just from the combat zone, but from their own country's attempts to ban them from trying to get pictures showing the horrible cost of war.

Video of the Vietnam war played a big role in ending that war.

The words "A big bomb" doesn't mean much to people, seeing it will make them know what we're talking about. Especially if someone ever gets the idea if trying it in a population center.

Yes, Orwell already knew about that. But hardly anyone was listening although many have read the book.

Who told Trump (and the Pentagon) he had a small penis?

RE: US bombs Afghanistan
I am curious whether the man or the mountain won. That's Chuck Norris Grog lift big rock off ground shit right there. Man v. Mountain. But it was a 6' air blast not an bunghole buster. Did it have any effect deep underground? Or did Hassam just look at Saddam and ask "You feel that?" over tea. I don't what it's penetration depth is (and now somebody else will google it for me. SLACK bitches. :bowdown: ), but my money's on any mountain worth its salts. And why didn't they just use a bunch of bunghole busters if they were after caves. Cheaper and I'd bet more effective. I'm thinking tiny penis syndrome. Might work, though. No sane Dear Leader will ever have the balls to do it so let's give it to Mikey. That idiot will bomb anything.
