    Russ, i think a couple of dozen of smaller penetrator bombs would have been as effective without all the PR work.

    Probably right. But I don't think the ordinance used is really that newsworthy outside of the fact that it's the first time it's been used.

    The media's been obsessing over "Biggest non-nuclear bomb," ignoring that it's only a few times bigger than a normal 'big bomb' (which would be used in multiples anyway), and thousands of times smaller than a very small nuclear bomb.

    You know, I was thinking that the officer in charge of that operation was the person who asked for the use of that weapon based on their analysis, like "in view of X, we need such and such bombing in order to ", but then with a HUGE marketer in the White House, maybe during the briefing, Trump suggested that some fireworks would be needed.

    Dude, not even in Civ do you open 3 fronts at the same time.

    I can see both Putin and Xi rubbing hands at the amount of debt the US would be incurring.

    Although, on the other hand, this would probably scare French voters away from LePen.

    Remember all of those Cold War drills we had to run in school? Hiding under our desks in case a bomb was dropped?


    This seems much more likely to happen...

    Launching missiles in our inventory that are near their expiration date probably won't cost us too much... Provided that we're not shooting at meaningless targets such as drones... Or end up causing a real war...

    With regard to MOAB use, trump wasn't directly involved in that particular mission, he has just given permission to use that weapon.... Something Obama also authorized. One just hope our military knows what they're doing.

    Knowing trump, if the mission is a success, he'll take credit, if something went wrong, he'll fire the 'general' responsible...
