I knew a guy who used to fly the Panavia Tornado*, along with the General Dynamics F-16 and, earlier, the Lockheed F-104, with the Luftwaffe. He mentioned something about these runway buster bombs, something like this:
Could we use some more JP233 runway busters? That'd be for the airports in Afghanistan of course. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't wish for innocent Americans to get taken by the Taliban as hostages (went through this crap about 41 years back).
However, how many innocent people are there? The war was going on for nearly 20 years. Anyone who signed up on his (her, its) own for this stuff did not do it to defend America, or at least one would have to be pretty slow to believe that, for the last 10 to 15 years anyway, of what was an occupation. They'll probably be extracted. There are reporters stuck over there. I don't care too awful much - them's the breaks. Then there are the tens of thousands of Afghanis who supposedly deserve to come to America for, helping out or something. Nah.
Politicians of both squads, State Governors, all kinds of idiots have been inviting yet more "refugees" to continue the process of changing the population out. We urge everyone to go ahead and argue against this**, but sometimes we just yearn for a simpler, more decisive solution:
PS: Yeah, I know that this form of weaponry is probably obsolete. Cruise missiles can fly in and bust up whole airfields now, but these things were cool and useful in their time.
