A Central Command spokesman said Thursday that the U.S. dropped a massive bomb in Afghanistan because they “mean business,” and are kicking the “S-H-I-T out of the enemy.”
The spokesman made the comments when speaking to The Hill on the condition of anonymity.
“This has been a very difficult area; they’re tunneled into the ground in hardened bunkers and they’re actually leading a lot of attacks on U.S. and partner nation forces,” he said. “When you have a very large beehive, a little flyswatter may not work, so finally you take out the big stuff. We just found a huge beehive and we have to use something more than the fly swatter.”
The bomb dropped on ISIS targets in a remote area of Afghanistan is dubbed the “mother of all bombs,” and weighs 20,000 pounds.
“We mean business,” the Central Command spokesman said. “President Trump said prior that once he gets in he’s going to kick the S-H-I-T out of the enemy. That was his promise, and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
The spokesman went on to say: “Afghanistan has, for a little while, been the forgotten war but there’s a lot of action over there, there’s a lot of dangers. If we’re going to be engaged in a war, we’re going to be engaged in a conflict to win, period.”
