Meteor Full Of Swords: US Deploys Specialized Missile In Response To Kabul Airport Attack

The United States retaliated against ISIS for the Kabul airport bombing by using a special missile.

Meteor Full of Swords

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Pentagon employed the R9X variant of the AGM-114 Hellfire missile. It was fired from an MQ-9 Reaper drone.

The missile killed two people who were associated with ISIS in Afghanistan. The missile is often called the "ninja bomb" or "flying Ginsu."

It was first talked about in 2019 when the Wall Street Journal wrote about it. The R9X uses a halo of blades instead of an explosive warhead. The blades come out right before impact to take out the target.

The upside to this design is that it reduces the impact on civilians in the area. Explosive warheads tend to take out quite a few bystanders on top of their intended targets. The R9X did its job.

“We know of zero civilian casualties. Without specifying any future plans, I will say that we will continue to have the ability to defend ourselves and to leverage over-the-horizon capability to conduct counterterrorism operations as needed.”

Army Maj. Gen. William "Hank" Taylor

First Use In A Year

The R9X has not been used since August of 2020. Then the US used it to take out Abu Yahya al-Uzbeki. A man who trained al Qaeda linked organizations.

It is also rumored that the R9X was used on Hurras Al-Din leaders Qassam al-Urduni and Bilal al-Sanaani in June 2020 in Syria and another leader, Abu Ahmed al-Jaziri, in June 2019.

The recent use of the missile was the United Stated response to the suicide bombing that struck the Hamid Karzai International airport in Kabul. The bombing killed 13 U.S. soldiers and many Afghan citizens, while the massive evacuation of the country was taking place as the Taliban took over.

“To those who carried out this attack, as well as anyone who wishes America harm, know this: We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay."

President Joe Biden

It looks like the drone and the R9X did exactly what we promised to do.

    1. They did the best they could. The enemy uses women and children as supposed "shields" in battle, so the U.S. and others

      1. Nope...they lied...killed a family. This is the most corrupt admin..we have ever had...they deserve the death penalty for all they have done.

        1. It seems like the Biden Administration’s expertise has been either to point fingers at somebody else, lie or just hide. This administration has been so inept in everything they do and no humility in accepting faults.
          The American people are not all democrats and liberals who are willing to turn a blind eye to what’s happening to our republic and how it’s being destroyed.

    1. THEY HAVE BEEN KILLING DEFENCELESS CHILDREN FOR YEARS. PEDOPHILES, TO GET ADRENOCHROME FOR THESE CREEPS. TRUMP SAW THIS AND HAS BEEN TRYING TO STOP IT, ABORTION CLINICS, SELLING HUMAN PARTS, DO WOMEN KNOWN WHAT THEY DO WITH THEIR DEAD BABIES?????? CLINTON HAS SOME OF THAT BLOOD FOR HIM TO BE ABLE TO HAVE SEX THE PERVERT. HOPE HIS THING FALLS OFF.

    2. Can you image the left wing media if what’s happening in the Biden’s Administration had happened in the Trump’s administration? The sky is falling, the sky is falling… now it’s really falling and where’s the left wing media? All mute!

  1. So this is the drone that took out an Afghan aid worker who was loading water barrels into his car. Was it this one that also took out 7 cute little dear children. I see nothing to brag about and all I can say is Joe Biden the idiot did it again. Intelligence my foot. There is no intelligence over there or in Washington DC. Heads need to roll over this. No excuses

    1. The liberals and democrats knew who they were voting for. He hardly left his basement during the campaign.
      Really, is this a surprise to anyone, really? C’mon man!!!

  2. I grieve for the children and for ANY innocents who are hurt or killed. But people need to wake up and pull their heads out of the sand (or wherever else they have them stuck). WAR is not NEET or TIDY or CLEAN, it is ugly and brutal. There ARE going to be innocent casualties, it can't be avoided. Civilized people know this and try to avoid it at all costs. But uncivilized people, like the Taliban and others like them, take full advantage of this fact by hiding in hospitals and schools and behind women and children, knowing that we won't shoot. They are not above killing women and children and dragging the bodies out in the street, and saying to the news media "the US did this" .
    In war or any armed conflict mistakes will happen. We were in the process of leaving the area and trying to help others who wanted to escape the conflict and what the aftermath would bring.
    CHECK YOUR EMOTIONS AT THE DOOR PEOPLE. They ATTACKED US and their own people while we were trying to get out of their country. The boots on the ground were not allowed to act, it was the OFFICE CHAIR warriors that FUBARD the pull-out.

    1. The problem is they got their intelligence from the Taliban and didnt even try to verify it before the strike ending up taking out children

      1. That’s what’s happened when people worked off their emotions. Biden wanted vengeance and wanted to show off. Instead they killed innocent people. Biden went on TV the next day and boasted that he bagged the bad guys. He has yet to apologize for what happened.

    2. It has to be NEET! Americans are held to a higher standard because we are known for civility, wait, that changed recently. What was I thinking!
      Just because the Biden Administration is inept doesn’t mean we have to accept inadequacy in our highest office.
      I disagree with you.

  3. Problem is that this missile killed a US Aid worker and 7 children as well as a couple more adults, none of whom were involved in the bombing at the airport that killed 13 Americans and over 170 Afghans as well as wounding hundreds of civilians and more US Military.
