The MOAB is the largest non-nuclear bomb in operation.
For the first time, the United States has used the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) against enemy forces.
The bomb – nicknamed the “Mother Of All Bombs,” was dropped by the US Airforce in Afghanistan on an underground ISIS complex.
A few days ago, a US Green Beret was killed close to the same location.
The MOAB is the largest non-nuclear weapon. It weighs 21,000 pounds.
Watch a test of the Bomb below:
US President Donald Trump reportedly gave “total authorization” to the military leading up to the use of the bomb. When asked if he was sending a message to the Communist North Korean regime, Trump said, “North Korea is a problem, the problem will be taken care of.”

After the Tomahawk Missile strike in Syria, and the Use of the MOAB in Afghanistan, it’s a safe bet that North Korea’s already paranoid regime is a bit more on edge than usual.
