U.S. Shows off New Weapon of Mass Destruction

Mar 17, 2003

Bush keeps talking about Iraq’s "weapons of mass destruction." Then, hypocrite that he is, he turned around to brag abut a new U.S. bomb and ordered a special test to show its enormous destructive power.

Blowing up part of Florida on March 11, the Air Force detonated this Massive Ordnance Air Burst bomb which has to be dropped from the ramp of a cargo plane because it’s so big, has 20,000 pounds of high explosives and whose shock is felt 10 miles away.

If that’s not a "weapon of mass destruction," what is?

And if Bush is not a war criminal, no one is.
