[casi] MOAB

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

Hello all.  The media has done its job here in the states.  Now something
over 60% of US Americans will support a military aggression against Iraq
without United Nations approval.  I believe this was done by positioning this
as an "US" against them with France, Russia, and the UN as another axis of
evil.  Bush stated that he would not allow some bureaucracy to inhibit him
from "protecting" the safety of US American citizens.

Additionally the US has tested another new bomb, the MOAB.  They said that
this was similar to a nuclear blast.  21,500 pound bomb with 18,000 pounds of
explosives.  They also said that the effects of this bomb could be felt
potentially more than 100 miles away.  I am trying to figure out how a drone
is a trigger mechanism, but the 18,000 lbs of explosives are apparently
another devise for creating peace.

dazed and confused.
