U.S. forces deployed a GBU-43 (MOAB) bomb against an ISIS tunnel complex in Achin district, Nangahar province, Afghanistan, today. The bomb weighs over 21000 pounds. Within the blast’s red zone, dBP’s (peak decibels) measuring 140 would be experienced.
Bomb damage assessment (BDA) is unavailable at this time.
The US Defense Department has released what appears to be FLIR video of the GBU-43 bomb blast on an ISIS stronghold in Achin, Afghanistan:

The US Navy says it fired 59 Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAMs) at various targets in Syria last night:
“A total of 59 TLAMs targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars. As always, the U.S. took extraordinary measures to avoid civilian casualties and to comply with the Law of Armed Conflict. Every precaution was taken to execute this strike with minimal risk to personnel at the airfield.”
The attack was in response to a poison gas attack on Syrian civilians.

McDonalds has released a beast from its kitchen. This beast is the Grand Mac with 1/3 lb. of ground beef. It’s everything we love and more of it! I tried one today and was not disappointed. The burger itself was a filling meal and so tasty. I only have one question for McDonalds: why did it take so long? Got to have another, soon…oh, and please don’t tell Hamburgler.
