Well then, I'm confused, or Fox News is, because I watched them talking about the BLU-82, the Daisy Cutter, while showing films of an FAE and talking about it as an FAE bomb.
During the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, the Russians developed a hand-held launcher to fire similar bombs into the caves of the Mujahideen, who called it the "Satan Stick".
can you draw a picture of a hand-held device that shoots a 15 ton bomb into a cave?
