The Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) is informed about the “super bomb” the U.S. has dropped on Afghanistan and condemns this depraved, criminal act without reservations.
A GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb or MOAB was dropped for the first time at 7 pm local time Thursday, April 13 “four U.S. military officials with direct knowledge of the mission,” reported to CNN. Nicknamed the “mother of all bombs,” a MOAB is “a 21,600-pound, GPS-guided munition that is America’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb,” CNN said. Accordng to CNN’s military sources, the super bomb was dropped by an MC-130 aircraft, operated by Air Force Special Operations Command.
The “military sources” said “the target was an ISIS tunnel and cave complex as well as personnel in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province.” CNN reports that “[t]he military is currently assessing the damage. Gen. John Nicholson, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, signed off on the use of the bomb, according to the sources. Authority had to be sought from Gen. Joseph Votel, commander of US Central Command.”
“This is the first time a MOAB has been used in the battlefield, according to the US officials. This munition was developed during the Iraq War,” CNN states.
The U.S. is desperate to unite its bureaucracy in the hopes of overcoming its internal crisis. Its failure to achieve this with its missile strike on Syria is now leading to wilder and wilder acts of revenge against all those who refuse to toe the U.S. line. Its assaults on vulnerable targets so as to threaten China, Russia, the DPRK and peoples everywhere fighting for their right to be deserve the condemnation of all justice- and peace-loving peoples.
The Government of Canada must not be permitted to get away with blithely supporting these criminal activities and escalating preparations for a dangerous war of world-wide proportions.
