Today, the "US" dropped the MOAB (Mother of all Bombs) - the largest non-nuclear bomb ever deployed in Afghanistan, ostensibly against ISIS-K. Of course, they tell us that they "took every precaution to avoid civilian casualties." Of course they did, like they did in this airstrike in Syria (that the administration has been silent about) that hit Syrian allies and killed 18 people!
