MOAB Strike In Afghanistan: A Move Ahead In Trump’s 4D Snakes And Ladders
After a tense week in geopolitical terms, following the US airstrike in Syria and the arrival of US battleships off the coast of North Korea, the Trump ADministration welcomed in the Easter holidays by dropping an MOAB, a Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, colloquially known as the Mother Of All Bombs, on ISIS facilities in Afghanistan. Internet wild as usual with many fearing the end of the world and others banging the American military drum. I think this strike was a sensible move, which combined decisiveness and a show of strength, and is designed to take out the bad guys, who at this moment are ISIS. President Trump is doing well in delegating this kind of decision to his military commanders, who I expect to get rid of the Islamic State before the end of the year.
