The United States -- aka Trump, aka Orange Julius -- dropped what it delightfully calls the Mother Of All Bombs on some supposed ISIS outpost in Afghanistan this week.
Probably not so delightful for the innocents passing through the mile-wide area of devastation.
According to reports, 36 ISIS "combatants" were killed.
One has to wonder how many more will be recruited by this overkill from our tiny-fingered president.
Tweeted Afghanistan’s envoy to Pakistan, Omar Zakhilwal:
"If big bombs were the solution we would be the most secure place on earth today."
Or as Borhan Osman, identified by The Guardian as an Isis expert with the Afghanistan Analysts Network, put it:
“Making such big news out of a small organisation, and countering this threat with such a huge measure could indeed make them look more attractive. One of the grounds on which Isis is building its recruitment drive is to say they are fighting the big enemy, the Americans.
But the payload of a B-52 is three times as destructive as the MOAB.
As that great philosopher Pogo said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."
