1 One would think by now we'd have a MIRV that could launch 6-8 of these without putting a C-130 crew and their escort at risk.

2 There were plans to convert some ICBMs to these. This way you can place them anywhere in about 45 minutes.
Of course launching ICBMs does make certain countries nervous as they do not know what's in the warheads, nukes or MOABs. Be nice though; no need to degrade NK's AAA system to allow a C-130 to pass unmolested on its way to MOAB the Kim Puff Boy.

3 Get better accuracy with GPS guidance. Plus, can't remember the throw weight of the ICBM force, but it is under the weight of this weapon. Additionally, you would need to totally redesign the device and would never get the same amount of bang without going nuclear. That generally would cause problems.

But it is a nice thought.

4 96 of the bastards in one punch. No Americans dead. GO TRUMP. At last a President who will let the Military do it's job.
Barack HUSSEIN Obama was a community organizer in the ghetto's of Chicago. What did that idiot know about fighting a war? TRUMP is smart enough to know he's a real estate investor. Not a General.

5 "One would think by now we'd have a MIRV that could launch 6-8 of these..."

At 21,000 lbs each? Umm... no. Not ever gonna happen. If you want a MIRV with that kind of destructive power, use nukes.

6 Wrath of God they can actually feel.

I hear that the Nork Unn is having his bunkers dug deeper now. Wont matter, after the surface is turned to a field of glass and ashes he will get the 'Dirty Dozen' treatment -- Gasolene poured down the ventilators and handgrenades dropped into where he is hiding.

Conversely, I would suggest to all those Nork around that humunculous 'Unn', that they kill him quietly and replace him with a lifesize muppet (if they can make Miss Piggy and Kermit dance they can make a sufficiently realistric 'Unn').

He will get them killed while he is hiding in a bunker (see above for how effective that will be) anyway so they might as well save themselves now.
