In case you have been living under a rock let me bring you up to speed. Yesterday, in an epic display of power, President Trump dropped a bomb. And, I am not speaking about da bomb, but a BOMB. To be more accurate it was YUGE, the “Mother of All Bombs”.
After years of Obama tip-toeing around these terrorist fools in the Middle East, Trump decided to make our presence known. Under Obama and countless other liberal world leaders, ISIS has been able to carry out horrific attacks unchecked. Finally, under the leadership of Trump, we are saying enough is enough.
So, yesterday, the military dropped a 21,600 lb. bomb with a blast radius of about a mile. The bomb is officially called a Massive Ordnance Air Blast, and it is the largest bomb in our arsenal that is not nuclear.
Now, we have a video of the glorious moment the bomb went off and you will love it.

So, let’s talk damage now, shall we? The first reports coming out detail that more than 100 ISIS fighters were killed. That information is coming from Ahmad Wali Sarhadi, a freelance journalist based out of Kandahar, Afghanistan.
According to IJR, Sarhadi gave them this report:
“Yeah, I am on the line with local officials of Nangarhar. They say a big complex of ISIS has been destroyed by the dropping of the bomb from the U.S.!
ISIS’s biggest complex in Afghanistan is destroyed. They say more than 100 ISIS members are killed. The casualties may get higher.”
Sarhadi also noted that while there are no official reports on civilian casualties yet, an official has said that they’re still possible.
While other information on the attack will surface in the coming hours, this is one of the first reports on known casualties.
According to this initial casualty estimate, this would be one of the most effective military strikes against ISIS yet.
So, as stated before the bomb was 21,000 pounds which is 210 pounds of revenge given to each terrorist. That sounds like a damn good day to me.
Let me put this into perspective for you. The “Mother of All Bombs” that was dropped in Nangarhar province yesterday had more destructive power than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, in August of 1945.
Yeah, it was that awesome.
Let’s watch it again.
To get the MOAB to its final resting place, the military had to drop it from a U.S. Air Force C-130 cargo plane. One U.S. official said it was “kicked out the back door”.
Gen. John Nicholson, Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, said in a statement to Fox News.
“As [ISIS’] losses have mounted, they are using IEDs, bunkers, and tunnels to thicken their defense, this is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against [ISIS].”
President Trump said that he authorized the mission, and called it a “very, very successful mission.”
I would say so myself. This is exactly what needed to be done with these terrorists. For too long we have allowed them to do what they want. The world has allowed political correctness to dictate how to handle monsters. The only way to stem the tide of terrorist attacks is to blow them to smithereens. We cannot allow them to continue to gain traction and harm others.
I am glad that President Trump took the wheel on this one and showed the world we are back and better than ever.
