Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    The US military has used its GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), nicknamed “the mother of all bombs,” for the first time in combat. The US Air Force used it in Afghanistan to target Islamic State tunnels and personnel.

    The 21,000-pound (9,525 kg) bomb was dropped in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan.

    The Pentagon has confirmed the use of the MOAB, and is currently assessing damage. General John Nicholson, commander of US forces in Afghanistan, signed off on its use, CNN reported. Authority was also sought from General Joseph Votel, commander of US Central Command (CENTCOM).

    .@thenib Those mujahedeen tunnel networks we're bombing in Afghanistan? We paid for them.

    ‘How many civilians killed there?’ Twitter rages as Trump drops 'mother of all bombs' on Afghanistan

    The US Military dropping the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used in combat enflamed social media users on Thursday, drawing comments from many prominent figures including Edward Snowden.

    The mega GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb (MOAB), dubbed the "Mother of all bombs”, is the largest non-nuclear bomb ever to be used in a combat setting. US forces dropped it in the Achin district of Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan at 7pm local time on Thursday.

    National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden noted the strike was designed to destroy a network of tunnels that the US itself had funded during the 1980s when CIA backed Jihadists were fighting the Soviet Union.

    The colossal bomb, over 30 feet long and weighing more than 21,000 pounds, creates a blast radius stretching a mile in each direction. It is made of a thin aluminium skin that is designed to “maximise the blast effect,” according to Frederick Davis of the Air force Research Laboratory, who designed the destructive device. 

    Footage from a 2003 test shows the enormous scale of the blast. According to the Air Force, the test produced an impact cloud that could be seen from 20 miles away.

    How the Mother of All Bombs kills people: Vaporized bodies, crushed internal organs and suffocated to death... while anyone who survives is left psychologically scarred for life

    • The  US dropped its largest non-nuclear weapon on ISIS in Afghanistan
    • Was dropped on tunnels containing ISIS camp in Afghanistan's Nangarhar Province 
    • The Pentagon estimates that 800 ISIS terrorists were in the area
    • GBU-43 bomb weighs 21,600 pounds, is 30 feet long, contains 11 tons of explosives
    • Unleashes huge explosive forces in the seconds after detonation - leveling buildings, tunnels and causing fireball which incinerates anyone 
    • Trump pledged in 2015 that if he became president he would 'bomb the s**t out of ' ISIS 
     
    The GBU-43, otherwise known as the Mother of All Bombs, or MOAB unleashes a devastating fireball that incinerates anything within 300 feet when it first detonates. In the milliseconds following the initial blast in Afghanistan, all the oxygen would have been sucked out of the tunnels and for hundreds of feet around, literally sucking the life out of terrorists, suffocating them as their lungs imploded. Then, in a flash the fiery shockwave would have blasted outwards at the speed of sound for up to a mile, causing huge concussive injuries to anyone caught in its path, leveling buildings and trees. As a comparison, the effect of the MOAB if detonated on Times Square is displayed on the right - showing that it would level a large portion of the Crossroads of The World.

    Putin's is bigger than Trump's! Russia's 'Father Of All Bombs' is FOUR TIMES more powerful than 'Mother Of All Bombs' that killed 36 ISIS militants in Afghanistan


    • Putin's Father Of All Bombs is packed with 44 tons of explosives to be detonated
    • Mother Of All Bombs belonging to the US Air Force carries 11 tons of explosives
    • Although US version is bigger in size and weight, the Russians' is more powerful
    • Added to the four times more TNT, the FOAB's burning temperature is also higher

    Vladimir Putin has a weapon four times more powerful than the US' monster bomb that killed 36 ISIS militants in Afghanistan

    The Mother Of All Bombs (MOAB), which belongs to the US Air Force, weighs a staggering 21,600lbs.

    But the Russian version - called the Father Of All Bombs - weighs just 15,560lbs and is packed with the equivalent to 44 tons of explosive TNT.

    This is four times more than the US' model which obliterates anything in its blast zone, which is twice that of the MOAB.

    Wouldn't it be darkly humourous if these weapons eventually become the real threat, not nuclear ones

  • I would say so, yes.

    It'll be like that old Bugs Bunny clip where Bugs and Yosemite Sam face off with ever-increasing guns, until the guns themselves are larger than the Earth.

    My money's on which ever country comes out with the Great Grandfather of All Bombs.

  • The bombs will grow larger and larger until...
