Arc-Light Arc-Brite ! Don't Need No Smart Bombs. Game Over.

Actually you get more bang for the buck with guided weapons. A smaller lighter bomb, that hits or comes very close to it's target is a lot more effective than many larger bombs, only a few of which get close enough to targets of interest. And you can carry more of the smaller weapons per sortie.

Imagine an Arc-Light type strike, only with more bombs, each with it's individual target (although more than one might be devoted to larger/harder targets).

Imagine a response to a terrorist attack where we swiftly and quietly go to the country which did the most to sponsor the terrorists. And where the private homes of each of the 100 most influencial citizens gets hit by a GBU-39.

And then the world gets told that from now on, the homes of anybody financially contributing to Jihad groups is on the target list
