The MOAB- Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb Bombs and missiles
These are very effective at scaring the enemy and destroying specific targets.

USA
America has some very powerful bombs which they hope are so scary that they will persuade the Iraqis to stop fighting.

One of these is the massive Moab bomb, which is the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in the world.

America also has self-guided missiles called cruise missiles that can be fired from more than 1,000 miles away at targets.

Special bombs called E-Bombs are not so destructive, but they do damage electronics, making Iraqi defensive weapons less effective.

Iraq
Iraq has about 12 Scud missiles, which are old fashioned, short-range and not very accurate.
