USA and ISIS rift continues- MOAB is the answer to the ISIS in Afghanistan:
It’s been more than a decade now that the US chief officials and the army have a base in Afghanistan which started with a mission to terminate the Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. We all witnessed the terror which happened on 9/11 and marked as a black day in the US history.
Since then many things have changed as the US controlled the involvement of ISIS in most part of the world and seemed to achieve the goal for what they fought for years. But lately, there were some incidents and seemed someone took over the seat which was left behind by Laden and they are keeping their heads up by performing activities which are against the laws of the government.
The new president of the United States “Donald Trump” has an eye on most of the Muslims countries around the world and especially their direct or indirect involvement with the country.
According to the new rules and regulations passed by the officials, there is a ban on selected Muslims countries to travel to the US and all illegal immigrants will be deported back to their respected countries around the world.
These new rules had a huge impact on the families and friends in the US and also what they used to see it as a land of opportunity. Recently, the US dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb ” MOAB” Mother of all bombs on the Islamic state in the Afghanistan on Thursday.
The bomb was reportedly dropped on Achin district in Nangarhar province, which is a known headquarters of the ISIS group. These groups are against the government of the country and the officials who choose to stay even when the mission was over for years now.
The bomb has been used for the first time by the army and due to its weight and size, it is tagged as ‘Mother of all bombs’ which weighs approximately 20,000 pounds. It is also 30 feet long and detonates itself 6 feet off the ground to increase the destructive power and mass destruction which costs them sixteen million dollars. Its official name is GBU-43 or Massive Ordnance Air Blast.
Former Afghan President Hamid Karzai criticized the mission. “This is not the war on terror, but the inhuman and most brutal misuse of our country as a testing ground for new and dangerous weapons,” he tweeted.

The Taliban, which has also been at war with rival ISIS militants, also condemned the U.S. attack. “Using this massive bomb cannot be justified and will leave a material and psychological impact on our people,” it said in a statement Friday.
According to reports, there are not many militants left in the same area and it is the strategy used by the officials to use the country as a training ground for their new weapons.
It is strange to look how the economy and development of Afghanistan has ruined and there is no scope for further enrollment with the outer world. GBU-43 is the best in their arsenal and it is strange to look how easily they deployed one of the most expensive weapons on few militants.
