Not one civilian was hurt, not even a broken fingernail. But the Massive Ordinance Air Blast bomb (MOAB) put some ISIS tunnels out of commission and killed about 95 ISIS terrorists.
The only 'atrocity' in this case, is Karzai's words.
Karzai spoke in an interview with the Associated Press. He claimed that the reason we dropped the bomb on the 'Fightin' Scumcrumpets' was simply to test our ordinance. Well, if that's true, the test was a success and the results even better. Perhaps Karzai should take his ice cream truck and ride off into the sunset.
The former failure even criticized the Afghan government for allowing the bomb to be dropped. However, the office of President Ashraf Ghani said that after the Mother Of All Bombs was dropped there was "close coordination" between the U.S. military and the Afghan government over the operation.
The office also agreed that we were very careful to prevent any civilian casualties.
"How could a government of a country allow the use of a weapon of mass destruction on its own territory? Whatever the reason, whatever the cause, how could they allow that? It is just unimaginable," Karzai whined.
How could a government of a country not do everything in its power to protect its people from the scourge of ISIS? That is the reason, that is the cause for which we showed the enemy strength, rather than strategic patience, which amounts to sitting back and allowing the enemy to kill and conquer.
President Trump isn't taking Obama's weak-wrist approach to ISIS--he's allowing our military to do its job, and the rules of engagement that have handcuffed us since this all began under George W. Bush has been relaxed to a degree.
Karzai is simply upset that he's out of office and outed as a thief.
The latest word is that ISIS and Al Qaeda may be teaming up to fight the West. It may be a good thing, although it isn't perceived that way at this time. Once we get all the bad eggs in one basket, it may be easier to kill them and their goats.
Karzai had the audacity to say that President Trump "has committed an immense atrocity against the Afghan people, against fellow human beings." He apparently wants to equate us with the real horror faced by the Afghan people: Islamic State.
Now you can see why he's no longer in charge--he can't even recognize the problem.
