Graphic of the Day - The MOABing of ISIS

Yesterday, we dropped a Massive Ordnance Air Blast (GBU-43/B MOAB) on a cave complex in eastern Afghanistan inhabited by dozens of ISIS guerrillas. It is assumed they are all dead. I'm not sure this was a practical application of this device when the entire spectrum of cost vs. benefit is figured, but rather perhaps this is more of a publicity stunt, message sender, and bit of psychological warfare.
