The U.S. military dropping the 11-ton “mother of all bombs” on a series of ISIS tunnels in a remote region of Afghanistan shook the world yesterday. It sent an undeniable message of strength to rogue leaders — like Kim Jong Un — that should, at the very least, give them pause before they make their next stupid move.
As an added bonus, the Dept. of Defense released footage of the actual bomb explosion and it showed us, from thousands of feet above, the sheer destructive power of this beast.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Pentagon has released footage of the U.S. dropping the “mother of all bombs” on the Islamic State in Afghanistan Thursday.
Official video shows the sudden blast envelop a mountain valley in the Nangarhar province, where the terror group was making use of a network of tunnels and caves. Pentagon officials said the blast left 36 ISIS fighters dead, and said every precaution was taken to avoid civilian casualties.
