I’m watching CNN. An expert is describing the bombs in the US’s arsenal. Among them are “inert bombs.” These bombs, he explains, are used to keep collateral damage – civilian casualties, I assume – low. (Well, I’m thinking, if you don’t drop the thing in the first place it will keep CD even lower!)
But seriously, what exactly are these things? My guess is that they’re all boom and smoke with little or no ouch; they alert the people at the target site that they’re being bombed without actually killing them – yet. If they don’t hightail it out of there soon the next one is gonna hurt. Am I right?
