I Think Trump wants to give a message to Kim Jong-un!

Kind of a pointless message to send a guy who's bread and butter is convincing the rest of his country that the world is threatening them.

If I ever get to think that me and my sister had some interesting spats when we were kids, all I gotta do is watch the evening news when they tell about Trump and the Kim.

I believe it was a show of force. We have had the GBU-43/B MOAB since 2003 and just used it now. It was likely to get our enemies or possible enemies to rethink their action. The Russian strike at Zelenopillya against 2 Ukrainian BDEs caused a wave of discussions in the US Army before I got out.
