U.S. Drops 'Mother of All Bombs' on ISIS

From FOX News:

The U.S. military dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an ISIS tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.

The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was deployed in Nangarhar Province.

The MOAB -- Massive Ordnance 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.

President Trump told media Thursday afternoon that "this was another successful mission" and he gave total military authorization.
All enemies of the United States just got a really loud wake-up call.

Wake up, Kim Jong-un!

My thoughts exactly! This is a stern message that there are new sheriffs in town (Trump, Tillerson, Mattis).

Also, is it just me or is Bannon's impending ouster and Coulter/Ingraham/Alt-Right turning on Trump a sign that the nationalist faction is losing ground and mainline conservatives are starting to come home?

I never thought the "nationalist faction" held any ground that was more significant than other factions.

I think the significance of Bannon's role has always been overemphasized by the pundits.
