US drops “Mother of all bombs” on ISIS in Afghanistan

StaffRebel Columnist

The world's largest non-nuclear bomb was dropped on ISIS in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province today.

According to CBS, the area was so well-defended that it would have been very costly to human life for troops to clear it on foot.



In a statement the Pentagon said, “The strike was designed to minimize the risk to Afghan and U.S. Forces conducting clearing operations in the area while maximizing the destruction of ISIS-K fighters and facilities."



The military also said, the US “took every precaution to avoid civilian casualties with this strike”.

Developed in 2003 by the Air Force, the device is called the M.O.A.B, short for Massive Ordnance Air Blast. It's also referred to as the “mother of all bombs”.



This was the first time it has ever been used in combat.

Is there enough virgins to go around? They may have to share.

Good for Trump ordering this bombing. Hopefully is caused more than a few deaths in the ISIS ranks.

Syria bombing may not have been the best move, but so far this seems to be a good one.

If the socialist/leftist main stream media in the Western countries screams their condemnation, then we all know it was a good move for Trump to make.

On the same note, because the MSM was giddy that Trump bombed Syria was a strong indicator that it was the wrong move to make.

Sorry to say that collateral damage is inevitable clearing these scumbags from the face of the earth.They hide behind innocent people, then others scream to the U.N.I say scrap the U.N.,scrap the state sponsored broadcaster(CBC), use more of these bombs wherever ISIS and their sympathizers congregate. Impeach the whole libtard government, elect a strong minded Conservative Government to protect all our borders. Pay our true share in to NATO. What are we waiting for? To become like most of Europe is now with their no-go zones? What did our Veterans fight and die for??? Parts of the koran sucks big ones. Wake up Canada before it’s too late!

Brooke Baldwin of CNN is reporting that “Trump dropped the Mother Of All Bombs in Afghanistan”, yet CNN continues to insist that it wasn’t actually Obama himself who surveilled President Trump.

This action is probably islamophobic according to M103. Good thing it was the States that did it where they don’t have M103 and can take action against muslim terrorists.
