Yesterday President Donald Trump ordered the U.S military to drop the country’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan where an ISIS camp is located. Trump did this as a “tactical” move to destroy tunnels filled with weapons and plans for future attacks.

Reported on CNN, “Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said he approved of the strike and that it was designed to support Afghan forces and US forces conducting clearance operations in the region.”

No civilians were hurt, according to the article but 36 ISIS members were killed. U.S military and Afghan officials predicted 300-600 members would be in the area. The “mother of all bombs” blew up an area equivalent to nine city blocks.

“This was the right weapon against the right target,” the commander for US forces in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, told a press conference.
“It was the right time to use it tactically against the right target on the battlefield.”
