Without warning or any word it was coming, the U.S. airforce just dropped the “Mother of all Bombs” (MOAB) for the first time in combat operations. The country who just received the massive ordnance air blast (MOAB) had no clue it was coming and now a clear message has been sent that was more than eight years in the making.
The largest bomb in the U.S. arsenal that’s not nuclear just deployed in “a series of ISIS cave complexes in eastern Afghanistan” ABC News reports. A spokesperson for the Department of Defense has confirmed this action has been taken and the area decimated under the weight of the 22,000-pound bomb. This behemoth rightfully earns the name “mother of all bombs,” and these terrorists in hiding had it coming.
The Independent reports:
“A spokesperson for the US Department of Defence confirmed to The Independent that a MC-130 aircraft dropped a GBU-43 bomb at 7pm local time.” Despite the MOAB not being nuclear, the effects of the blast feel as if it was. According to Retired Lt. Col. Rick Francon, it would “feel like a nuclear weapon to anyone near the area.” Those in the area being terrorists who have gone unchecked for too long and should have had this bomb dropped on them several terrorist attacks before now.
This is in response to a Green Beret being killed just days ago while fighting ISIS in this specific area of target. President Donald Trump ordered the blast showing that America isn’t tip-toeing around terrorists and longer and when you kill one of our heroes, you can expect to be killed.
