The MOAB in Afghanistan

So, thoughts? How do you guys feel about the largest non-nuclear bomb dropped recently.

a lot of people died but at least we only destroyed the area instead of irradiating it

It's pointless to waste a moab on an underground target.

What.

It was specifically designed to take out cave/tunnel systems. The Afghan system was in particular the impetus to even design the MOAB in 2003.

Mr. Dealmaker would rather throw bombs than make deals. What happened? What happened to American first and how we weren't going to run off to defend other countries that should be defending themselves? If Trump had said the opposite of all the campaign promises he made, he'd be looking like the most truthful candidate that ever ran.

It doesn't do a particularly good job. The tunnels don't show any damage in any of the photos released. And there wasn't enough people killed to justify the drop. So if they caused minimal casualties, and didn't cause structural damage, what was the point? Easily could have done the same thing in a smarter way.

What photos? They're still fighting in the area so no one can get there.

You were saying?

There was more photos I saw elsewhere, but I have better things to do then hunt down the link. I'm sure you get the idea though.

but the remoteness of the area, the presence of Islamic State fighters, and, more recently, American security forces, has left those claims unverified.
Those photos could have come from any of the 4 sites shown in the satellite images.

little evidence of how much material and human damage it inflicted.

Afghan Special Forces inspect inside a cave which was used by suspected Islamic State militants at the site.

Extremely misleading text if you're right, I don't see any reason to think you are though.

Also raw footage on youtube shows the landscape is destroyed but tunnels are still open
