The MOAB, the Mother of All Bombs, just dropped in Afghanistan. Whoa nelly.
Fox Business says:
The device is the largest non-nuclear device in the Air Force arsenal, Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin reported. It was dropped in Nangarhar Province, an eastern area near the Pakistan border.
It’s the first time the 21,000-pound ordnance has been used in combat, said Griffin.
The device, developed in 2003 by the U.S. Air Force, is called the M.O.A.B, short for Massive Ordnance Air Blast. It’s often referred to as the “mother of all bombs.”
The attack was launched in an area where a U.S. Green Beret was killed Saturday by small-arms fire while operating against ISIS targets.
Griffin described the MOAB as a “concussive weapon” which does not penetrate the ground, but can destroy tunnels and a large surface area.
I suspect the liberals are going to go ballistic. I, for one, am thrilled. Let ISIS know who’s the boss. Not military-hating Obama baby, not wuss Obama. Not Mr. Paralysis through analysis Obama.
Details just coming out. More as I know.
