Social Media Reacts to ISIS Winning The Toss & Receiving “The Mother of All Bombs” From The United States (VIDEO)
For the first time in history, the United States dropped the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in its military arsenal. Dubbed “The Mother of All Bombs,” the MOAB GBU-43 was dropped from a plane over the Nangarhar Province in East Afghanistan.
According to CNN’s Pentagon correspondent, Barbara Starr, an American MC-130 aircraft dropped a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, or MOAB, around 7 p.m. local time Thursday. It is the first time the MOAB, which is often referred to as the “mother of all bombs,” has been used on a battlefield.
The 21,600-pound explosive was guided by GPS to strike a system of tunnels and caves that the Islamic State used to move around freely, making it easier for them to target American and Afghan forces, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.
Here’s how social media reacted:
The bomb Trump just dropped on Afghanistan cost $314 million.
Enough money to fix the water crisis in Flint almost three times over. #MOAB
