After President Donald Trump dropped the “Mother of all Bombs” on ISIS terrorists in the Achin District of the Nangarhar Province in Afghanistan on Thursday, he got a lot of different reactions. Even though his action received several positive reactions from the media, still media did not delve into the real reason the bomb was dropped.
IRJ talked to Sergeant Rudy Reyes in order to figure it out what a weapon like the MOAB does to ISIS’s morale and its organization as a whole.
Reyes said: First, you have to think about the tactical victory of using the MOAB. It’s an airburst with a concussive force so it rocks and shakes the ground like an earthquake. So it destroys the tactical ability for ISIS or Al-Qaeda to use tunnels.
If they have munitions and any kind of logistics, all of that is inoperable. But aside from all that, the psychological victory is probably even more profound.”
He went on and discussed how the MOAB won a “psychological victory.”
“This is a tribal culture, a culture that is still in their skewed sense so attached to God. Imagine a God-like power dropping over their heads and wrecking their fighting force.
Completely destroying their ability to wage war. And to know that without impunity, we can continue to drop more. Again, this a culture where very few can read and write. And this is almost a God-like power. I’m sure it shakes them to the very core.”
The Sergeant then explained the reason he had no issue killing terrorists:
“By no means did Al-Qaeda adhere to same the rules of war or any kind of Geneva Convention. Human life and especially the life of the infidel is less than human to them.
While we may have to leverage somebody with some pain or waterboard them to get information. They are going the other route and burning your genitals with a hot piece of steel and cutting off your head. So it’s a whole other level. I had no problem killing them.”
Reyes finished by giving his full support behind the use of the MOAB. “For these cave complexes and these very remote areas, I think the MOAB is the perfect solution. Drop more of these MOABs, and crush ISIS.”
The truth is we should have got tough with ISIS along time ago. Thankfully, Trump knows what has to be done and did the right thing! He is letting everyone know that America will no longer tolerate any more carnage from these terrorists!!
