U.S. drops 'Mother of all Bombs' on ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan. The bomb was so large that it was carried in the cargo and was held of the aircraft then rolled out the plane's rear door toward its target.
"We targeted a system of tunnels and caves that ISIS fighters used to move around freely making it easier for them to target U.S. military advisers and Afghan forces in the area," Spicer said. "The United States takes the fight against ISIS very seriously and in order to defeat the group we must deny them operational space, which we did."
According to experts on weapons and foreign policy, it seems that this was purely a military decision and not a political one, based on the realities on the ground in Afghanistan right now.
For this trump had to say, “I don’t know if it this sends a message; it doesn’t make any difference if it does or does not, This was another very, very successful mission.”
