The decision by President Donald Trump to deploy the most powerful conventional bomb in the history of the world has been met with the expected criticism of the left.
No matter what the President does, liberals, progressives, and all other forms of democrat are going to oppose it. Donald Trump could sneeze and the left would find a way to turn it into something that it’s not. As an example, we needn’t look any further than the harsh criticisms already laid at the foot of the “Mother of All Bombs” that the U.S. dropped on ISIS in Afghanistan. Liberal lunatics decided that the bombs nickname was actually sexist, in a lame attempt to defame the President.
In reality, the “Mother of All Bombs” did its job uniquely well, and the death toll from the impact continues to rise.
“Afghan authorities Saturday reported a jump in fatalities from the American military’s largest non-nuclear bomb, declaring some 90 Islamic State fighters dead, as US-led ground forces sought to advance on their mountain hideouts.
“Dubbed the ‘Mother Of All Bombs’, the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast was unleashed in combat for the first time Thursday, hitting IS positions in a remote area of eastern Nangarhar province.
“The unprecedented attack triggered global shock waves, with some condemning the use of Afghanistan as what they called a testing ground for the weapon, and against a militant group that is not considered a threat as big as the resurgent Taliban.
“The bomb smashed IS’s hideouts, a tunnel-and-cave complex that had been mined against conventional ground attacks, engulfing the remote area in a huge mushroom cloud and towering flames.
“‘At least 92 Daesh (IS) fighters were killed in the bombing,’ Achin district governor Esmail Shinwari told AFP on Saturday, adding that three tunnels that sheltered the insurgents had been destroyed.
“Shinwari said that American and Afghan ground forces were slowly advancing on the mountainous area, which is blanketed with landmines, to clear the site, but there were still some pockets of resistance from insurgents.”
The weapon, whose use has been decried by the left as a publicity stunt, created a stunning zero civilian casualties while eliminating nearly 100 ISIS operatives. The democrats can whine all they want; the MOAB worked.
