The US dropped MOAB, “the mother of all bombs” in Afghanistan. Russia uses the thermobaric FOAB, “the father of all bombs” in Syria. Although 6,000 pounds lighter than MOAB, the FOAB is four times more powerful & deadly.
The comparison is not to diminish the criminality of the US in Afghanistan but to highlight the importance of demanding the immediate, unconditional withdrawal of all foreign military forces from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, & elsewhere.
The historic imperative grows more urgent: rebuild the international antiwar movement, even if it has to be rebuilt one person, one placard at a time.
