There is some good info about the MOAB, Mother of all Bombs, in a thread from last week.

There are no rules or laws in modern warfare, regardless of what the UN would have you believe. The US never signed the Geneva Convention (although we certainly do hide behind it often enough), and therefore are more than happy to ignore it when it suits our needs to do so.

For those in combat, and those responsible for those in combat, the only true rule or law is to fight as dirty as you have to, so long as you go home alive.

Basically a fuel air explosive bomb, very similiar to the daisy cutter used in vietnam. Used to clear mind fields. Will suck the lungs from peoples bodies out through their mouths. Massive concussion. 21,000 pounds or thereabouts. Basically emits a fine mist of JP11 jet fuel about 3 football fields in area.. then a spark plug ignites it all. Very nasty.

Well, lookie here. Just when one goes, another NoValueAdded arrives.

No, Brain Surgeon, only pillow bombs are now legal. Machine guns are only allowed to fire jellybeans. These rules only count for us, though. If you're a brutal dictator you will be defended by every ill-informed maggot and 90% of the over-paid, self-loathing entertainers.

in fact, you're hiding behind the geneva convention right now, when calling for saddam not to possess these illegal weapons you are using.

You havent read many of my threads yet, have you?

The Illuminati, or the Cabal, as I tend to call them, sees the mid eastern Muslim population as a threat. Due to thier religion and culture, they are not as easily manipulated by traditional means as western populations. In addition, since they are considered to be highly suspect/unpredictable, and in control of a large portion of the world economy, they are a percieved threat on the part of the Cabal. Therefore, they will have to be neutralized. Posted by DragonRider

The WMD thing is just an excuse. The main reasons are partially as mentioned above, and partially economic, in that we are soon going to have control over several billions of barrels of crude oil, and I predict, within a year, we will have control over Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia.

Interesting .. but how should that work out ? I mean .. the US would be all alone against the arab world and probably others when trying the other ones .. and they havent been disarmed by UN prior to invasion.

I guess some can consider MOAB as a weapon of mass destruction, then some can see it as just another bomb. I would rather see a pellow bomb then any bombs at all.
