President Donald Trump scored a bullseye in America’s fight against radical Islamic terrorism by doing something that weak-willed President Barack Hussein Obama never did, namely dropping the Massive Ordnance Air Blast, better known as MOAB.
The “Mother of All Bombs” scored a direct hit on Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, which for a long time has been the home and main center of operations of ISIS. It killed 94 ISIS, and those who survived the blast recently shared how scared they were when they saw the bomb falling.
Said a villager in the Achin district, where the bomb destroyed ISIS’s network of tunnels, “The earth felt like a boat in a storm. My ears were deaf for a while. My windows and doors are broken. There are cracks in the walls.”
Stated another man, “My relatives thought the end of the world had come.” Added a witness, “Last night’s bomb was really huge, when it dropped, everywhere, it was shaking.” Another stated, “We were all scared” and “we thought it had happened right in front of our house.”
John Nicholson, America’s highest ranking general in Afghanistan, explained that it was important to wipe out ISIS’s tunnel system, since the terrorists had been using them to hide out from American drone strikes. Said Nicholson, “This was the first time that we encountered an extensive obstacle to our progress. It was the right time to use it tactically against the right target on the battlefield.” Are you glad we took this bold move?
