The 20-thousand pound MOAB, which is the largest non-nuclear bomb ever built, has been dropped on an ISIS targetin eastern Afghanistan.
We do know the primary target was an ISIS tunnel and cave complex where munitions were stored. Initial reports say the bomb took out 36 ISIS fighters and destroyed the target. Also no civilians were killed or injured!
When President Trump was asked if the deployment of MOAB sent a message to North Korea, "I don’t know if this sends a message. It doesn’t make any difference if it does or not," Trump replied. "North Korea is a problem. The problem will be taken care of."
- MOAB actually stands for Massive Ordnance Air Blast, but "Mother Of All Bombs" is also commonly used.
