Equal Deployment Opportunity
A significant number of ISIS fighters became WASWAS fighters yesterday, after finding themselves on the receiving end of the United States’ “Mother Of All Bombs” – the 21,000 pound MOAB which is our largest non-nuclear armament. It had never previously been used in combat, because our previous president was better known for deploying “the mother of all jeans” when dressing casually.
The bomb, the destructive power of which can not be described without using a lengthy chain of expletives, took out a tunnel complex in Nangahar province, Afghanistan. Perhaps not coincidentally, this is the same area where a member of our special forces, Staff Sgt Mark De Alencar, was tragically killed in action only days ago.
In other words, this is the very definition of the Trump administration “sending a clear message.”
And not just to ISIS. It seems reasonable to think that preposterously gigantic explosions that turn America’s enemies into pink mist might also be raising eyebrows in Syria, North Korea, Russia, Iran, and über-liberal parts of California.
By the way, when we heard that the “Mother of All Bombs” had been dropped from an aircraft, we were tempted to make a joke about Hillary Clinton being ejected by United Airlines mid-flight. But we didn’t because it was too easy.
Not to mention, too cruel a thing to do to ISIS.
The latest terror attack (as of this writing – but the day is young yet) took place Monday evening on a German train when a young Afghan “refugee” started chopping his fellow passengers with an axe while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (which would still have Barack Obama puzzled as to his motives).
15 people were hurt, 3 critically, before the maniac got a lesson (“rock, scissors, paper” style) that bullets beat hatchets. ISIS has subsequently claimed responsibility, and the attacker left a note claiming to be self-radicalized, along with a handmade ISIS flag.
We are again sadly reminded that – contrary to this administration’s repeated claims – guns aren’t to blame for acts of terror. In a pinch, an axe or a speeding truck will make a perfectly acceptable, and deadly, substitute for those with murder in mind…or in their appalling ideology. [snip]
