    US drops largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan after Green Beret killed

    The U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday just days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS there, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.

    The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was dropped in Nangarhar Province.

    The MAOB (Massive Ordinance Air Blast) is also known as the “Mother Of All bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn't been used before Thursday.

    For comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at Syria last week was 1,000-pounds each.

    I'm on board with it. Send a message that we will no longer be bullied.

    False. Name names and show proof and then I'll show my counters that show otherwise.

    America has historically imposed our will on whomever we want to when we felt the need to do so.
