I have to wonder what Trump is thinking when he does these things.

True there was/were some bomb(s) dropped in Afghanistan.


Also, True that ctl spins the truth and makes wild accusations against Trump.
He's really turning into quite a troll.

At least this makes more sense than the Syria bombings. This raid was supposedly on isis targets.

For anyone who hasn't heard it was the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used - has a 1 mile primary blast diameter. Dropped on an ISIS cave complex in the mountains of Afghanistan near the Pakistan border.

Makes a lot more sense than drone strikes where you only get one or two or three of them at a time.

I would think by now the world should be getting the idea that Trump doesn't mess around. When he decides to act he does it on a scale that gets everyone's attention.

I believe it is a 1 mi. blast radius; ie, a 2 mi. dia.; supposedly sucks out all the oxygen and turns the 'air' to fire. Also supposed to be effective against cave complexes though not a 'penetrator' bomb.
ISIS, welcome to Jell.
Reports will be forthcoming of the apparent effectiveness, but if this is/was effective one can only ask why the previous president did not use it in 8 years.

Anyone who wants to fundamentally change the USA is not a Patriot.
Many things in life are negotiable but not Honor or Integrity.

Previous President was MUSLIM so he identifies with the Jihadists, throat cutters, beheaders, Shiria Law, praying 5x a day, bowing his head to the Saudi King, death to Infidels, et al.

My uncle Bob used to have really bad gas after eating baked beans, and the results were similar.


Crater was about 300 yards in diameter too.
