well going by the articles description of what happened it seems it went after a purely military target of a force that was at war with the USA and its allies and no civilians were apparently hurt so i don't see their really being to much of a problem with what they did perhaps a bit over kill but not uncalled for

The MOAB is big but the MOP is better in my opinion. Smaller boom but its a penetrator, against soft targets one MOAB works fine but if they were hardened targets you'd need two or three.

Surprised they used the MOAB to be honest, its not very cost effective as a weapon.

Well, the pattern being established is that noise and flash wizz bang > actual strategic effectiveness so. I mean, the MOAB works but its no more effective than just bombing the shit out that area with non "look at the size of my dick" weapons. Especially given he just declared he was "very proud" to have dropped the thing.

I mean, the Tomahawk strike was a pointless political strike and he was praised for it. So of course he's going to go bigger. Bigger = More praise. He is pathologically reliant on external validation and he was just sent the message that blowing shit up = people like me. >.>

Hopefully he won't nuke North Korea for more Twitter followers next.

Let the games begin......

We needed something fresh, something that's going to wow the people, and today; I really think we did a great job of demonstrating only but a fraction of our power.

Yes, though no word yet if he actually meant to hit Afghanistan seeing as he already forgot who he hit with Tomahawks.

We'll see how much longer before he inadvertently strikes Sweden in an attempt to free it's people. >.>

I get where you are coming from, he does seem like that sort of person, though one of the things you said made me think of something about explosives and not politics lol

I wonder if it one bomb the same yield as many smaller bombs is equally effective or if its combined explosive charge makes it more damaging. I don't know the answer and don't really want to look it up on google lol but its an interesting thing to ponder...

You leftists.... I remember when you guys were crying that Trump was a Nationalist and an isolationist, because he was running on "America won't get involved in any other country's problems. America will stop being the world's police. America first.

You guys were saying, "Hey! Then the terrorists and rogue states will run rampant." You berated America for leaving the world to its own devices.

Crunchyroll's forum search tool sucks ass, or I would have looked up those posts and posted links to them.

Now Trump orders a missile attack in Syria, and a bomb attack in Afghanistan against ISIS, and you berate the U.S. as thugs and bullies, accusing the U.S. for being warmongers.... attacking everyone around us....
