New Front in 16 Year War on Afghanistan

One had to search the NY Times for today's lead story (World News section, subcategory Asia Pacific), U.S. Drops 'Mother of All Bombs' on Afghanistan; White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced the action in his daily briefing:

"The U.S. has dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan."
President Donald Trump says he is very proud of the U.S. military after what he called a "very, very successful mission." Whether the political establishment elects to bestow gushing praise on the first-time use of the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) bomb, as they did for the airstrikes on a town in Syria last week, is as yet unknown. But it is imperative that today's strike on Afghanistan be contested, not "normalized" as just another (albeit bigger) bombing-as-usual in America's war on the world.
