The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, just days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS there, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.

The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was dropped on an ISIS tunnel complex in Nangarhar Province.

The MOAB -- Massive Ordinance Air Blast -- is also known as the ?Mother Of All bombs.? It was first tested in 2003, but hadn't been used in combat before Thursday.

The MOAB is so massive it had to be dropped out of the back of a U.S. Air Force C-130 cargo plane.

"We kicked it out the back door," one U.S. official told Fox News.

For comparison to the 21,000-pound MOAB, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at a Syrian military air base last week was 1,000-pounds each.

Boom!  Take that! New sheriff in town.

Sadly, it is a drop of rain in an area that needs a great lake's worth of water in terms of effort,  ISIS now controls a large part of Afghanistan, a country we and NATO are occupying.  So, how weak do we really look?  90 pound weakling.  We are consumed with concern for collateral damage.  This lunacy puts us ONLY in the defeat category with every objective.  Do you think the enemy is concerned about collateral damage?  I think not.

The last war effort we were victorious in was World War II.  We bombed cities knowing full well it was almost solely populated with civilians.  We killed all people in the enemy territory.  If we do not embrace this mindset, we are already defeated.

You do know that they dropped this even after the media went off on some children dying in a air strike by us a few days before? I think it was the 2nd time muzzies complained about colateral damage. They dropped it anyway.
