Trump Bombs the Shit Out of ISIS


Remember when Trump said he’d “bomb the shit out of ISIS?”

That’s one promise he kept.   The United States has dropped a massive GBU-43 bomb, also known as the “mother of all bombs,” in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday against a series of caves used by Islamic State militants, the military said.

It was the first time this type of bomb had been used in combat.  It was dropped from a MC-130 aircraft.

The GBU-43 bomb weighs 21,600 pounds, is 30 feet long, and contains 11 tons of explosives.

 

The blast radius is believed to be over 300 meters.  The target was ISIS tunnels and personnel in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province.

General John Nicholson, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, was required to get permission to use the weapon, but it’s unclear how far up the chain of command his request traveled.  News sources are not reporting whether any ISIS members were actually killed.  We can also presume that Trump didn’t seek Congressional approval for use of the bomb.

  1. They probably just created millions of new tunnels and hiding places for ISIS. Meanwhile Drumpf went back to Drumpf Dump South for a relaxing long weekend of not golfing because he is too busy fixing America (snark) Of course he’s golfing. That what he does.

    Trump is an efficient business man. Do you know how long it takes to dig a 300 meter hole 50 feet deep? More than a few seconds I bet.

  3. Why didn’t Trump wax patriotic and ride the bomb, waving his MAGA cowboy hat, with a hearty “Wahoo” and “Yeehaw?” Next time for sure, and there will be a next time. Mikey Pence could follow suit the next next time. And Paul Ryan could follow suit the next next time. There are around 20 of these things that cold be put to good use.
