The image above will link you to a youtube video about the MOAB, which military-fetish types call “mother of all bombs”. It actually stands for “massive ordinance air blast”. Team Trumpy and their military knuckleheads are having a bang-up time right now, blowing shit up and threatening people. They don’t get to play with MOABs very often. They’re actually inefficient compared to dropping more, relatively small bombs. The brass justifies their big bang party by saying the MOAB has psychological effects that make it worth while. They really just like the super big boom. It’s really hard to listen to these people sometimes. It really is.
Speaking of toxic military bullshit:
Back to Russiagate. Paul Manafort is officially nervous. He’s now pulling the Mike Flynn move of “retroactively”registering as a foreign agent. Oops. He was a foreign agent while he was head of Trumpy’s campaign. Additionally it looks like Paul received some very shady payments from Trump people right after he had to leave the campaign due to Russian ties.
You can feel the indictments getting ready to drop on Carter Page. And AG Jeff Sessions is getting dirtier looking by the minute.
