ABC News is reporting military sources say the U.S. is preparing to use a monster new weapon during the first nights of an attack on Iraq. It’s called MOAB, short for Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb. It’s a modern, bigger version of the 15,000-pound daisy cutter used in Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War and Afghanistan. MOAB is 21,000 pounds. It’s still experimental. And its massive explosive power is similar to a small nuclear weapon. Military sources say it’s intended to terrorize Iraqis.
