I reckon he just said to the generals "do whatever the hell you want." and they were like finally we can try out the moab.

You would think the scientists and their infinite wisdom could invent the LAGA bomb, then use it often. LAGA bomb = Let's All Get Along, bomb. Remember the old saying, "better living through chemistry"? **==

The "halitosis bomb" and "gay bomb" are informal names for two theoretical non-lethal chemical weapons that a United States Air Force research laboratory speculated about producing; the theories involve discharging female sex pheromones over enemy forces in order to make them sexually attracted to each other.

In 1994 the Wright Laboratory in Ohio, a predecessor to today's United States Air Force Research Laboratory, produced a three-page proposal on a variety of possible nonlethal chemical weapons, which was later obtained by the Sunshine Project through a Freedom of Information Act request.[1][2][3][4][5]

...

Wright Laboratory won the 2007 Ig Nobel Peace Prize for "instigating research & development on a chemical weapon — the so-called 'gay bomb' / 'poof bomb' — that will make enemy soldiers become sexually irresistible to each other."

The list of Ig Nobel winners is itself pretty interesting.

The Daisy Cutter was only 15,000lbs, a bit more than half of the MOAB.
"Police protection" is an oxymoron. Gun laws are like masturbation, they both feel really good, but after you're done you realize you haven't accomplished anything."
