Following the U.S. military’s decision to drop the Massive Ordnance Air Blast — better known as “mother of all bombs” — on an Islamic State stronghold in Eastern Afghanistan, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) demanded to know President Donald Trump’s “strategy” behind the move.
Speaking at a town hall on Thursday, Warren told the media: “As is the case with every part of Trump’s foreign policy, we are all trying to understand: What is the strategy?”
She also called on Trump to come before Congress and explain himself before taking any additional military action overseas.

The strike, which has killed at least 94 Islamic State terrorists, was requested by military officials on the ground in Afghanistan in an area where between 600-800 Islamic State fighters have been terrorizing the local populations.
Though most understood this, Retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff responded to Warren’s question with a very “on the nose” answer.
“To kill the bastards Senator,” Duff wrote on Twitter Friday.

“Oh Lizzy, you really are slow if you have to ask ‘What Is the Strategy?’ over a military operation against ISIS,” Duff added in a separate tweet.
In addition to killing dozens of Islamic State fighters, many believe part of the strategy behind using the 21,000 pound bomb was to instill fear in the terrorists given the pure and total destruction the MOAB bomb is able to inflict in such a large area.
