U.S. Drops Massive MOAB Bomb on ISIS in Afghanistan

BREAKING: U.S. Responds to Death of Green Beret By Dropping Massive Bomb in Afghanistan

The United States has dropped a 21,000 pound bomb in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan in response to Green Beret  Staff Sgt. Mark De Alencar being killed in the region by ISIS terrorists last week. Nangarhar Province sit on the eastern border with Pakistan, which has been a longtime terrorist stronghold. This type of bomb, a GBU-43B, has never been used in combat until now. It is the largest non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. Air Force arsenal. 

"As ISIS-K's losses have mounted, they are using IEDs, bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense," General John W. Nicholson, U.S. Forces Commander for Afghanistan said in a statement. "This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against ISIS-K."

According to CENTCOM and the White House, "U.S. forces took every precaution to avoid civilian casualties with this strike."

There are a number of caves and tunnels in the region where Al Qaeda and ISIS have strongholds. The bomb was directed at an ISIS tunnel. According to Fox News' Jennifer Griffith, the blast area for the bomb is a mile wide.

"Around 7 p.m. local time in Afghanistan, the United States military used a GBU-43B weapon in Afghanistan. The GBU-43B is a powerful and accurately delivered weapon. We targeted a system of tunnels and caves that ISIS fighters used to move around freely, making it easier for them to target U.S. military advisors and Afghan forces in the area," Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Thursday about the drop. "The United States takes the fight against ISIS seriously and in order to defeat the group, we must deny them operational space, which we did."

This is a developing story, stay tuned for updates.

Next week it will be Wednesday or Friday.  If he acts on Thursday,  it will be a pattern ;)

He's doing what what he said he'd do.  'Knock the hell out of ISIS!'

The wussies are no longer running America. If that was not clear around the world last week, it is now!
