Trump’s ‘Mother of All Bombs’ Kills 36 ISIS Fighters in Their Terror Tunnels

avatar

The Pentagon confirmed that 36 ISIS militants were killed in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday after U.S. forces dropped the largest “non-nuclear” bomb ever used in a strike against the Islamic regime.

The GBU-43 bomb, nicknamed the “mother of all bombs,” was dropped on ISIS fighters using a network of tunnels and caves in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, according to officials.

The bomb was dropped from an aircraft and has the impact of about half the size of the smallest nuclear weapon ever built.

Gen. John W Nicholson, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan said U.S. forces in the area did not see any evidence or hear reports of civilian casualties.

“The weapon used … is designed to destroy caves and tunnels. This was the right weapon against the right target,” he told reporters Friday. “I want to reassure the people of Afghanistan that we took every possible precaution to prevent civilian casualties.”

“We are united with the Afghan government to prevent terrorists from establishing safe havens in Afghanistan,” Nicholson added.

Late Thursday President Trump told reporters at the White House that he was “so proud” of our military.

“Another successful job. We’re very, very proud of our military,” he said.

President Trump did not confirm if he had authorized the use of the massive bomb.

“Everybody knows exactly what happened,” Trump said. “We have the greatest military in the world…We have given them total authorization…If you look at what’s happened over the last eight weeks and compare that really with what’s happened over the last eight years, you’ll see there’s a tremendous difference. Tremendous difference.”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called the bomb large, powerful and accurate.

“The U.S. takes the fight against ISIS very seriously,” he said during the daily press briefing.

The former Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the use of the bomb on Twitter.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
