Red Pilled World

"The red pill represents embracing the painful truth of reality, and rejecting the blissful ignorance of illusion fed to us by the mainstream media."

Obama dropped 26,172 bombs in 2016. Wikileaks: "That's 3 MOABs a day."

Red Pilled World has mentioned previously that some anti-Trumpists are so poisoned by hate that even if Donald Trump cured all diseases they would still complain that he was putting doctors out of work.

That point was demonstrated this week when some people actually complained when President Trump bombed ISIS. Yet where were the complaints when Obama dropped over 26 thousand bombs on Muslim-majority countries in 2016 alone?

Wikileaks recently tweeted1 a reminder of the 26,172 bombs dropped during 2016:


"Media hype Trump's bomb theatre. But the Pentagon dropped 26,172 bombs during 2016. More than a MOAB every day."

Wikileaks also posted a follow-up tweet2:


"Even if all these bombs averaged 1,000 lbs that's 71,404 lbs per day or almost three MOABs a day."

The math behind the estimated figure from Wikileaks of 3 MOABs per day is shown at the bottom of this article, but of course without knowing exactly what type of bombs Obama dropped, it's impossible to give a precise figure, so to reiterate, the tweet from Wikileaks is just an estimate.

It's also worth reiterating that President Trump dropped the MOAB on ISIS. Not all of Obama's bombs were dropped on ISIS.

For example, some were dropped on a Doctors Without Borders hospital3 in Kunduz, Afghanistan. This bombing attack, carried out in October 2015, was initially reported to have killed 12 medical workers and 10 patients, including 3 children4. However, the final death count rose to 42.5 In addition, 37 people were seriously wounded. An eyewitness nurse said, “Patients were burning in their beds. There are no words for how terrible it was.” A hospital caretaker said he could hear women and children “screaming for help inside the hospital while it was set ablaze by the bombing.”

UN's human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein described the airstrikes as "utterly tragic and inexcusable".6

For anyone complaining about Trump bombing ISIS, where was their outrage when Obama bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital? And once again, where was the outrage when Obama dropped over 26,000 bombs on Muslim-majority countries in 2016 alone?


Here's the math behind Wikileaks' estimated figure of 3 MOABs per day:

i) Firstly, Wikileaks have based their calculation on an average bomb weight of 1,000 lbs. Without knowing exactly what type of bombs Obama dropped, it's impossible to know the actual average weight, but Wikileaks appear to have chosen a representative mid-range figure. For example:

GBU-39 bombs weigh 250 lbs.7
JDAM equipped bombs range from 500 lbs to 2,000 lbs.8
GBU-28 bombs weigh 5,000 lbs.9
MOAB bombs weigh 21,600 lbs.10


ii) Obama dropped 26,712 bombs in 2016, which equates to 72.98 bombs per day:

26,712 / 366 = 72.98 bombs per day


iii) So using Wikileaks estimate of 1,000 lbs per bomb, that equates to 72,980 lbs dropped per day. A MOAB weighs 21,600 lbs, therefore the equivalent of 3.38 MOABs were dropped every day by Obama during 2016:

72,980 lbs / 21,600 lbs = 3.38 MOABs per day
