The Mother of All Bombs Blows Up Nothing In Afghanistan

2015:  MOAB – Mother of All Bombs GBU-43/B – the Pentagon boasts that this is the ‘mother of all bombs’.   The Tsar nuclear bomb by Russia is the father of all possible bombs being 1000 times more dangerous.  The Pentagon is running riot again just like they did for the last 60 years, pretty much my entire life.  I grew up in the shadow of the nuclear bombs, grrr…it wasn’t a picture in the news, it was very real at the secret military base where we lived for a while during the Eisenhower years.

 

This ridiculous bomb is being used in Afghanistan.  That is, we are bombing mountains where the Taliban have half a century of experience occupying and fighting one nuclear power nation after another.  And they never, ever give up!  This is amazing and they will stand in history as major lessons about how barbarians can destroy huge empires.

 

Time to travel back to the end of Bush Jr. and the beginning of Obama, the fake peace prize pooch:

April, 2010:  U.S. retreat from Afghan valley marks recognition of blunder but…by the last days of July during the election time,  the Afghanistan Troop Pullout Was Slowed by President Obama | Time.com reports.  What?  HAHAHA.
2011: HUGE JDAM BOMB STRIKES TALIBAN POSITION—This was, hahaha, supposed to end one month later in victory. By dropping many big bombs on tribes in Afghanistan. This ‘reduction’ never really happened, we floated back into Afghanistan shortly.

 

Soon afterwards, the Peace Prize pooch, President Obama Made This Hilarious Afghanistan Withdrawal Speech (June 22, 2011) – YouTube this is a much watch speech.  He says all the right things and then…did all the evil war crime things!


This speech about our ‘brief stay’ in Afghanistan after killing bin Laden, has been endless, as I expected back then. An illegal war leads to no peace but bitter war to the end.  ‘The tide of war is RECEDING…’ says Obama the warmonger.

 

Note that is didn’t ‘recede’ at all.  It expanded into Libya and Syria, we didn’t ‘win’ in Iraq, either.  This entire speech by the delusional Obama should be required for all war criminals to see how a war criminal should delusionally defend war crimes.

 

‘We are a nation that brings enemies to the rule of law, we do not stand for empire but self-determination…’ HAHAHA.  ‘The power of our example…’  HAHAHA.  This man is a laugh riot.

 

‘We spent a trillion dollars at war…we must create new jobs and industries and live within our means…’  Wow.  This speech was from 2011 when he had to run for office so yes, he talked jobs at home, peace and not overspending…just like Trump.

 

2014:  U.S. Ends War in Afghanistan January 1st after 13 Years – YouTube

The general here is utterly delusional. He talks and talks about how wonderful their ‘mission’ was and it was a ‘success’ when it was an utter failure.

The Taliban correctly saw this as a craven retreat and immediately poured back in. Just like in the Vietnam war!

 

Finally, still under Obama, in 2015 fighting again winds down in Afghanistan:  Violence continues as Afghanistan War Ends Jan 1 – YouTube

We seldom see so  many ‘premature withdrawals’ except maybe in a brothel…

 

So now on to today as Trump falls into the traps set by the Pentagon paper pushers:  U.S. drops its largest non-nuclear bomb for first time in combat – NY Daily News as Trump apes Obama, Bush Jr., Bill Clinton, Bush Sr. and yes, Ronnie Reagan.  The Ship of State continues to plow towards the Niagara Falls of Imperial bankruptcy.

 

White House Press Secretary said the strike targeted an area where ISIS militants had been able to “move around freely” and target American personnel.

 

Spicer said all proper precautions were taken before the drop. But he refused to share any other details about the decision, punting all questions to the Department of Defense. He did not say if President Trump knew about the bombing beforehand or authorized it.

 

The commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan said the bombing was necessary as ISIS-K, the Afghanistan branch of the terror group, had grown more reliant on bunkers and tunnels for defense.

 

All our bombings are ‘necessary’ but alas, ‘USELESS’ too.  These bombs are for cities and killing civilians, Battle of Stalingrad or the bombing of Hiroshima, take out a few military facilities while maximizing the murder of millions of civilians.  The Nazis began this and we took up the cudgel and now it is normal to annihilate city populations during wars.

 

But there are virtually no cities to bomb in Afghanistan!  Like Vietnam, we end up bombing jungles or deserts and this has near-zero effect.  I remember the ‘hearts and minds’ business under LBJ.  I said in a speech way back in 1968 ‘You can’t bomb your way into people’s hearts and minds, they hate you because you are killing them!’ This goes under ‘duh’.

 

Previous to this morning’s stupid use of bombs the military was using these ‘smart’ stupid bombs in Afghanistan:  Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) – Wikipedia

 

The Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) is a guidance kit that converts unguided bombs, or “dumb bombs”, into all-weather “smart” munitions. JDAM-equipped bombs are guided by an integrated inertial guidance system coupled to a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, giving them a published range of up to 15 nautical miles (28 km). JDAM-equipped bombs range from 500 pounds (227 kg) to 2,000 pounds (907 kg).[1] When installed on a bomb, the JDAM kit is given a GBU (Guided Bomb Unit) nomenclature, superseding the Mark 80 or BLU(Bomb, Live Unit) nomenclature of the bomb to which it is attached.

 

The JDAM is not a stand-alone weapon; rather it is a “bolt-on” guidance package that converts unguided gravity bombs into Precision-Guided Munitions, or PGMs. The key components of the system consist of a tail section with aerodynamic control surfaces, a (body) strake kit, and a combined inertial guidance system and GPS guidance control unit.

 

Hint to the Pentagon: dropping bombs doesn’t work except against industrial societies and even then it doesn’t stop military production, the Nazi war machine was churning our rockets, etc. in the caves outside of Jena all the way up to the minute my father came in with his gun drawn and shot it in the air and told the Nazis, the angry Russians were less than 20 miles away!

 

So why would the Taliban or the Vietcong stop fighting?  They know we always give up!

    Off topic, Elaine, have you blogged about this?

  2. Lou

    ‘Denier’ sounds like a religous, jihadist term.

  3. Christian W

    Israel attacks Syria with Depleted Uranium bomb:

    http://www.jpost.com/page.aspx?pageid=7&articleid=312189

  4. That is the bomb in my story. It is nasty. And yes, we have to have faith in a warmer earth is evil.

    People who need to believe this must move to my neighborhood to enjoy true global warming…no coats or fires allowed. Naked preferred. The wolves and bears need to eat, after all.

  5. Christian W

    Apparently the Russians have 4x bigger version of the US ‘mother of all bombs’. Let’s hope the Russians don’t show off theirs or Trump will go nuclear our of penis envy.

  6. ziff

    Trump seems bent on solving all the big problems , 50,000 troops in syria ”to defeat isis ” hmmm , then after lunch ,,,

  7. JimmyJ

    Aaand there goes $16million in one bomb.

    More importantly in other news, since Trump had dinner with Xi and is applying military pressure over Korea, China abstains from supporting Russia over Syria. If China thinks going separate from Russia will help them, well we’ll see how Korea turns out. Everyone agrees we have to stop Kim but this isn’t about Kim, it’s about China getting the Bilderberg trestment using Ukra…err Korea as a wedge. Looks like China will come to heel.

  8. ALL our ‘presidents’ do the exact same thing and the same force pushes them to do this stupid global murder stuff: the Bilderberg gang.

    As everyone here knows, I hammer away at this topic for a reason. VOTERS pissed the Bilderberg gang off immensely by voting for Trump. That was verboten.

    It took some very powerful pushing and shoving and being outright nasty far beyond any winner has had in the last 60 years to finally push Trump into being their tool.

    I am amazed he lasted this long. I figured they would kill him by Easter (they still hate him, he ain’t out of the woods, not at all) but they will tolerate him so long as he serves them.

    A sad end to all the hopes of his voter base but I expect the Deplorables to figure out who they really are fighting…it will take time, of course.

    There are rumours Trump will be impeached anyway even after being humiliated into poodle status.

  10. Christian W

    And it appears it wasn’t “nothing” the US bombed. It was in fact a CIA sponsored network of tunnels for the Mujahediin/Al Qaeda.

  11. Lou

    Presidents Trumps picks, how many are jews?

  12. Christian W

    @ 7 Jimmy

    The cost of the bomb itself was $300+ million.

    KA-CHING for War Inc. again…

  13. Christian W

    Oops sorry you were correct turned the numbers around, development $300+ million, bomb $16 million.

  14. K. Chris C.

    Hate to say it, but just an ordinance test for the upcoming war with Iran.

    A lady cut the line in front of me, so I “re-accommodated” her.”

  15. K. Chris C.

    The author should read the Yinon Plan. As chaos and the Balkanization of the Middle-East IS the goal–for “greater Israel.”

    An American citizen, not US subject.

  16. zifff

    will we survive thru tomorrow??? Trumps big gamble

  17. zifff

    just an observation, it now appears there was only one issue blocking trump , relations with russia

  18. ziff

    correction, Saturday

    In the parlance of nuclear weapon technology, it was a 0.000011 megaton bomb. They have a term for an actual nuclear device with a yield that small: a dud.

    @Christian #10: interesting revelation. The US War Machine bombs itself.

    It won’t be long for the empire…

  20. tio

    Or anyone else Jim, another day, another headline.

    World ‘on the brink of thermo-nuclear war’

  21. Jim R

    Here’s hoping for lots more duds, then.

  22. ziff

    so how many those bombs ya got ?

  23. Christian W

    I think the US bomb on Yemen is a Depleted Uranium bomb. You can see the typical sparks from DU flashing.

  24. Jim R

    Christian, your link is broken. I think you meant:
