DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- It's called the MOAB, the acronym for the "Mother of All bombs," and today it was deployed against ISIS jihadists in a remote cave in Afghanistan.

 It's about time the world's lone Superpower starts flexing its muscles. We get them before they get us. It's not President Trump who will get us killed: It's liberal-minded spineless ambivalence that will lead to us getting killed. The US is the world's lone superpower and it's about time America starts acting like it. 

Some three dozen ISIS fighters were wiped off the planet by the largest and most-potent non-nuclear bombs in the US arsenal. We got the attention of the Russian, Chinese, Iranian and North Korean governments. Think twice, baby!
