TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DROPS MOTHER OF ALL BOMBS ON ISIS … NOW THIS IS A WAR ON TERROR!!!
As reported at FOX News, the U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday. The MOAB, a 30 feet long and 22,000 pounds Massive Ordinance Air Blast, or otherwise known as the “Mother of all Bombs” was let off the chain and deployed in the Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised to “bomb the sh*t” out of ISIS. Looks like another promise kept and a sign to the world that the United States has a new sheriff in town.
Why does this so remind me of the scene from the movie Iron Man I where Tony Stark is doing Jericho Missile Test. Stark says, “is it better to be feared or respected?” He follows up by saying, “Is it asking to much for both?” Stark goes on to say, “They say, the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I, respectfully disagree. I prefer the one you only have to fire once … For your consideration, The
Jericho Mother of all Bombs!”
Yup, that’s how America and a strong President Does It!
The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.
The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was deployed in Nangarhar Province close to the Afghanistan/Pakistan border. By comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at a Syrian military air base last week weighed 1,000 pounds each.

The MOAB — Massive Ordnance Air Blast — is also known as the “Mother Of All Bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn’t been used in combat before Thursday.
Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump said the bomb had been brought to Afghanistan “some time ago” for potential use. The bomb explodes in the air, creating air pressure that can make tunnels and other structures collapse. It can be used at the start of an offensive to soften up the enemy, weakening both its infrastructure and morale.
Just a helpful hint to the liberal media and the LEFT, this bomb was used to more than just eradicate IRIS, it shows just what the US in now willing to do against threats to the United States.
