Trump playing high-steaks global game

Only a few people know what a "GBU-43/B" is. A bunch more will figure it out if we use the official designation: "Massive Ordnance Air Blast," or "MOAB." Now you get it: It's informally referred to as the "Mother of All Bombs," and that designation is nothing but great PR for the military.
