    Re: Trump

    The MOAB was designed for this purpose. It is a percussion weapon built to destroy subterranean structures. Yes, it is a large bomb, "largest bomb that is not a nuclear weapon" but it is still pretty fucking far from the explosive power and long term effects from that of a modern nuclear weapon. I'm not a big Trump fan but I even wouldn't place the moniker of a nuclear device user on his dumb ass.

    no it is not. it is not a penetrating device. it is designed for surface targets, to my knowledge.

    Re: Trump

    You are correct it is not a penetrating device like a bunker buster. It is a surface weapon designed to crush all that is below it, including shallow structures, like the tunnels they were after. It's a lot like stomping on an ant hill. Standard bombing cannot create the deep and wide spread devastating effects that this thing can.

    When I first read on line earlier today that we dropped MOAB, I thought at first it was on Syria which had me thinking the absolute worst was next. But this area of Afghanistan has been a fairly decent stronghold and difficult area to control given these tunnels and underground hiding spots. I don't think ISIS will be using them much now.

    Re: Trump

    FWIW, a MOAB is the equivalent of 0.011kt of TNT. The Oklahoma City bombing was measured to be a 0.02kt yield. The smallest current nuclear weapon in the US stockpile, a B61 variable yield bomb, has a minimum yield of 0.3kt, approximately 27x as powerful as a MOAB.

    The MOAB, while great for making headlines, is not all that impressive.

    Aren't there a couple of tankers floating around with excess inventory just sitting there? Sounds like we should add a little fertilizer to them.

    Yeah, but oil isn't as lucrative as war.

    I know there was a spike last week.
    Having worked on various Raytheon and then raymarine pieces of shit over the years, I refuse to support that company, even if it has been lucrative in both labor and investment. I curse their name.
