When the U.S. was revving up to attack Iraq, I happened to be at the home of a conservative friend of mine. He was reading something on the Drudge Report about the "MOAB"s (Mother of All Bombs) that the US was going to use. To be honest, he was pretty gleeful about them. I think the bombs were 500 lbs.
I was taken aback by his attitude, knowing that thousands of innocent civilians were going to be killed or maimed by such a weapon. Did he think the bad guys were all going to stand in a central square together awaiting the MOAB?
Cut and paste this link to see some of the damage from Iraq. Warning: it's sickening. I have a son who's a year and half years old. If someone attacked the US under the guise of liberation and he was maimed like some of these poor kids, I'd be the first one to strap on a bomb. Don't those who thought attacking Iraq was a great idea realize this? Iraqis love their families too. Kill their innocent loved ones and they'll want revenge. If the numbers are correct and 100,000 innocent civilians have been killed, think how many terrorists we've created.
Here's the link. Again, it is very graphic: http://fallujapictures.blogspot.com/
