It had been a little too long since the U.S. Air Force annihilated a large number of ISIS combatants in the blink of an eye, and their trigger fingers were getting reeaaalll itchy. Rather than investing in some Gold Bond, they decided to fuck around and turn Mosul’s Ashur Hotel, an ad-hoc ISIS base, into what looked like a pre-4th of July fireworks warehouse mid-massive, swirling inferno.
Voila! Gone, just like that. Our ability to make buildings disappear is like a magic trick; our penchant for eviscerating assholes like a post-Chipotle deuce. You know that was just the U.S. taking it easy, too. In dishwasher terms, that was the Air Force’s “light rinse” option. Crazy shit. Can you imagine what it’d be like being outside that hotel and having it blown to smithereens right before your very eyes? The shockwave would probably blast the eyes clean out the back of your head, so that part would suck. But seeing it in person would still be sick (aside from the “losing your eyeballs directly afterwards” part).
This strike was part of Operation Inherent Resolve, and I think it’s safe to say the inherent living quality of all those ISIS fools in the Ashur has been resolved. Keep up the good work, servicemen and women..
