Breaking: U.S. Drops MOAB on ISIS — Largest Non-Nuclear Bomb in Existence

All eyes have been on the Mediterranean and North Korea for the last week since the missile attack on Syria.

And then out of the blue, the Trump administration has made good on promises to take a more aggressive approach to destroying ISIS from the face of the map.

Today’s launch of a MOAB — the largest non-nuclear weapon ever created — was dropped for the first time since the War of Terror in Iraq.

Targeted at ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan, the one-mile radius of destruction is awe-inspiring.

Here’s more from Redstate…

It is the largest guided (non-nuclear) bomb in the world, nicknamed MOAB (“Mother of all Bombs”).

Its actual title is GBU-43/B Massive Ordinance Air Blast Bomb – and news reports are now saying it was dropped in Afghanistan at 7pm local time Thursday.

It was actually developed during the Iraq war, but until now, has never been used in battle.

With a blast radius of 1-mile in either direction, and the target being ISIS tunnels and personnel in the Nangarhar region, it surely sent a message.

The power of this weapon cannot be understated.
