In Case You’re Curious How Hard We Bodied ISIS Today, Here’s An Explanation Of The Bomb We Used

via History Channel

So, America bombed the hell out of some ISIS clowns who were hanging out in the hills of Afghanistan.

For those who want a more technical explanation, here you go: the United States dropped the largest conventional bomb in the American arsenal, known as the “mother of all bombs,” on an ISIS complex in Afghanistan on Thursday, the Pentagon said.

According to a statement from the Pentagon, the bomb — officially called a ‘GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast — struck a tunnel complex in the Achin district of Nangarhar Province,  Afghanistan. They did not say how many militants were killed.

According to Adam Stump, a spokesman for the Pentagon, Thursday’s strike was the first combat use of GBU-43/B. The bomb was dropped from an MC-130, a cargo plane with a rear door.

Sean Spicer addressed the bombing during his Thursday’s White House press briefing, saying:

“We must deny them operational space, which we did,” referring to the Islamic State in Afghanistan.
