Giant Bomb Was ‘Right Weapon’ For Attack On ISIS, U.S. General Says http://n.pr/2otJ0nG

Will trust the military’s judgement here.

Just worried about “mission creep” in the context of the never-ending “War on Terror”, the long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (versus ISIL and the Taliban, and violent extremism in general), and balancing that against long-needed infrastructure spending here at home.

If they are using these MOAB wisely, and there are still plenty of them, and it’s not hurting “Hearts & Minds” efforts (the long-term cultural efforts that can backslide when there ends up being a lot of civilian collateral damage). 

Still skeptical of Trump. I have more trust in McMaster’s and Mattis’ judgement.
