But they said we cannot just bomb terrorists

After the dropping of the Mother of All Bombs on terrorists in Afghanistan, only one question remains: did the United States bomb the hell out of the Islamic State or did we bomb the shit out the Islamic State?



In his campaign, President Trump made two statements about bombs:
"I will quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS, will rebuild our military and make it so strong no-one -- and I mean, no one -- will mess with us."
"I would bomb the shit out of them."
Now which is it?

I say the latter, because the leaders of the Axis of Evil -- Iran, North Korea, and the Islamic State -- are too scared to poop.

It worked despite the expert opinion of CNN and all the others who got the 2016 presidential election wronger than dirt.

From CNN last November:
At this stage it's very tough to predict how the Trump administration will execute its promise to exterminate ISIS, let alone its broader Middle East policy. The national security elite of the Republican Party largely disowned Trump during the campaign; it's still unclear who will fill the top national security posts in the new administration.
The President-elect has set a demanding agenda that embraces economic nationalism, a hard line on immigration and multilateral trade deals and swift victory against ISIS. His team will need to be quick learners in the machinery of government in order to execute these directives.
But as Secretary of State John Kerry put it last week: "The pace of events across the globe does not allow for time-outs."
And yet for eight years, Barack Obama and his henchmen held a unilateral time-out in the War on Terror -- a time in which the Islamic State rose into the No. 1 terrorist state. Oh, they threw a lot of bombs, just not at the right targets.

This plan works because Trump's strategy is not Trump's. He had Pentagon generals develop the plan to eliminate the Islamic State.

One other thing he said on the campaign trail:
 "I will quickly and decisively bomb the hell out of ISIS, will rebuild our military and make it so strong no-one -- and I mean, no one -- will mess with us."
That worked.

Some Mormons object to calling this huge bomb MOAB because it may endanger Moab, Utah.

Fine. Call the bomb The Right Use of Military Power -- or TRUMP for short.




The original, "Trump the Press" chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.
Then came "Trump the Establishment," covering the election, which again the media missed.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

  3. Maybe we should start a GoFundMe account to buy some more MOABs. I'll bet dropping one or two on terrorists in Syria will get their attention real fast. - Elric

  4. One report said they cost $16M each, a rather small amount in the larger military budget. I'm sure that Trump and economies of scale can bring even that price down.
    Wonderful acronym Don.

    Some generals are better than other (as Abraham Lincoln found out). Let's hope that Trump's generals are worthy of their command and of our continued support.

  7. Just a comment on bomb casualties...With that kind of blast overpressure....There's no real way of telling how many were liquified. Most likely a whole lot more than ISIS will ever admit.

  8. killing Isis is good but Obama actually killed a lot of them with drone strikes. They have to be separated from money which is a lot harder than blowing them up. Also boots may well be necessary if money deprivation is deficient. Obama did not want to do this and I doubt Trump will either unless there is a replay of 9/11. This is too bad in a way. We were in Paris and Chartres last week. I first visited them in 1961, and many times since. The effects on a once great country from fecklessly waiting too long to deal with its problems is sad to see.

  10. According to Janes, the MOAB actually bombs the "hellacious shit" out of its target.

  11. Pyonyang, Tehran, Mecca (during the Hajj for maximum effect) would be three nice additions to the list.

  13. Although I am LDS, I have no problem with “M.O.A.B.”— I have to admit, though, I like Don's acronym much better!

    But, if it turns out to be too expensive to push the name change through all the manuals and government paperwork, might I suggest “F.O.A.B”?

    As in “Father of All Bombs”?

    The government could just issue a page or two of small round stickers, all printed w/an “F” on each of them, and the reader could apply the stickers as needed to correct each instance in the paperwork!

    It would dave the government a bundle on reprinting costs!
