The bomb, dubbed MOAB or Mother of All Bomb, by the Air Force is the American military’s largest non-nuclear bomb. It was dropped on an Islamic State (ISIS) target in Afghanistan.
Pentagon spokesman, Adam Stump said it was the first-ever combat use of the bomb, known as the GBU-43, which he said contains 11 tons of explosives.
Stump says the bomb was dropped on a cave complex believed to be used by IS fighters in the Achin district of Nangarhar province, very close to the border with Pakistan.
This was obviously in keeping with President Trump’s plan to annihilate ISIS very quickly; drop the largest bombs you can find on them and kill all of them very quickly. This was his very “great, wonderful plan” to defeat ISIS very quickly. Given Mr Trump’s penchant to bomb at will, and with no prior warning, one can only hope that Mr Trump doesn’t ever feel that a nuclear bomb will defeat ISIS faster and more cost effectively, or we might be having a nuclear crisis on our hands.
