When President-elect Trump was campaigning all across the country, one of his top priorities as president would be to completely shut down ISIS and forms of radical Islamic terrorism.
We Americans took him at his word and voted him into office to help restore order not only in our country, but across the world. We needed a president who would focus on protecting our country from those who plan to harm us.
We are happy to say that President Trump is keeping his promise! The US military has confirmed that they have dropped a massive ordinance air blast bomb on ISIS. Here is more information on what that bomb does.
The United States military deployed a Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb — known as the “mother of all bombs” — in Afghanistan on Thursday, military officials told CNN.
The strike was a coordinated attack against ISIS tunnels and personnel in the country’s Nangarhar province.

MOAB is America’s largest non-nuclear form of munition, and can be guided by GPS, according to CNN.
In a statement, the U.S. military said that the bomb was dropped around 7:30 p.m. local time.
“As ISIS-K losses have mounted, they are using IEDs, bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense,” Gen. John Nicholson said in the statement. “This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against ISIS-K.”
Here is a further definition of a MOAB from Wikipedia: The MOAB is not a penetrator weapon and is primarily intended for soft to medium surface targets covering extended areas and targets in a contained environment such as a deep canyon or within a cave system. However, multiple strikes with lower yield ordnance may be more effective and can be delivered by fighter/bombers such as the F-16 with greater stand-off capability than the C-130 and C-17.
Needless to say, this baby is big! And the largest non-nuclear bomb to detonate.
Watch out ISIS! President Trump is on a roll, and he will not allow any further harassment of radical Islamic terrorism on our country!
