taking out these twisted ISIS and ISIS-like folks isn't something I'm against. I just don't trust Trump and the people he put in charge of these things. Always feel like there are other motives for everything they do.

30. It is not a super weapon.

If it was on target it most likely did a lot of damage but bombing in the mountains is a tricky proposition. All the valleys and ravines limit the radius of damage - if ISIS had their base dispersed over a fairly wide area then it is unlikely that they suffered catastrophic damage.

32. Haven't heard much about MOABs since the mid-2000's.

Neither Obama or Bush ever seemed to have used them. Which makes me suspicious of Trump's motives. Maybe they just wanted to try it out and they saw it as a place to do it due to few civilians in the area, aye?

46. Not really

It is not a FAE or thermobaric weapon. The explosive material is Tritonal, which is used in most US conventional bombs.

Have we used thermobarics in Afghanistan?

52. Once in 2002

And it was a much smaller weapon at 2000 pounds. Thermobaric warheads are very common on small handheld anti-tank rockets and a lot if them have been fired. There is also a thermobaric version of the Hellfire helicopter launched missile.

Like every other conventional bomb. You will be little pieces well before you have to worry about lack of air.

military had more authority to do stuff on its own. So, successful (or 'exciting') outcomes will be for tRump's credit-stealing, and screw-ups are the military's fault...

20. It's exceedingly clear why he had to blow one of these moabs off.

There was a universal dissatisfaction with the lack of destructive power from the 60 Tomahawk missiles that left an airfield intact enough to launch more attacks the same day. He can't handle being the "can't blow shit up" president after his arrangement with pootie left him looking anemic.
