    it has been tested ,both as a water test and a land test, I watched a video of the tests, and it appears there were two tests ,one over the water and another in a desert area, both were in the US ,.as it was back then a big secret weapon against the Taliban. So I will stick with my original theory

    Can you provide any links to those videos?

    I know the US has used those on Tora Bora, was this the same thing as the bunker buster? Or, is the bunker buster a smaller version of this MOAB?

    To even talk about this idiotic nonsense is showing that "bombs" and "guns" are more important here than common sense and proper governing. These bombs and warmongering surely will help this country move ahead. Go study something else.
    I am interested in this because the normal fallout shelters of long ago will not protect people from being killed by them, as I understand it, the Russians have similar devices too. If we win the Powerball jackpot, that's be the day we'll begin building our bomb-proof shelter, we want to live through Trump's conflicts to see if he'll be living or not. And if he does, will the remaining American's call for impeachment for war crimes.

    Dockadams, this device was never used in combat before although it was supposedly developed just for areas like Tora Bora, the videos are now all over the place but they are from testing dates back in the early 2000. like maybe 2002 or 3.

    Freaking Brilliant ! Blowing up ISIS / ISIL under ground....... How did you do ? We did great, killed all of them. Lmao. Declare success because it was an underground target thus no actual verification.

    This bigly bomb was huuuuge. A little bit of compensation.

    I find it interesting that the Trump administration is going out of it way to make it known that military leaders can use this weapon without first notifying or getting approval from the president.

    Seems to fit with Trump's always wanting a way to deny responsibility if something were to go wrong. Sean Spicer can go into the daily briefing and say The president was not aware of the specifics of any bombing mission that went wrong and killed innocent people but also be able to take credit for all the missions that are successful.

    Oh, don't worry, everything that happens on his watch? He owns it. Just as in 2012 when tropical storm Debby was blamed on Obama, at least that's from a republican's point of view.

    I'm still amazed at this country and its people. How can an President get higher approval ratings for dropping an huge bomb? It does not take any brains to do that; neither does it help the country here. So there must be something wrong with the brains here as well the culture. People with brains would give this guy an even lower approval rating by dropping an bomb. Thus this country must be totally sick.

    Just think of all the American families in need of shelter and food. Millions to billions of dollars spent killing people, sickening.

    As further proof that Trump is the most dangerous politician in the world, consider these two stories:

    1) The Trump administration has been in discussions with Saudi Arabia since the start of his administration to build nuclear power plants in the country, which would be a clear violation of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954. Although the nuclear know-how was supposedly for peaceful purposes, MBS has gone on record saying

    “Without a doubt, if Iran developed a nuclear bomb, we will follow suit as soon as possible.”

    Although Iran never produced a nuclear weapon, it had a robust nuclear program until it agreed to an international deal in 2015 that curbed its activities. The deal, opposed by the Saudis, is now hanging by a thread because Mr. Trump abrogated America’s commitment.

    2) Earlier this month, the Trump administration suspended its participation in the 1987 Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. A few days later, Russia did the same thing.

    As of January, 2018, the Doomsday Clock was sitting at 2 minutes to midnight, due to the twin threats of nuclear weapons and climate change. The only other time it was this close to midnight was in 1953, shortly after the development of the first hydrogen bomb. trump's actions SHOULD move it even close to midnight, which is a very scary thought.

    Arizona; I wrote many times about the stupidity here; in any other country the "guy" (Trump) would have never got the "powers" as they do in this stupid country. But yeah they never learn until it is too late. Please wake up America.
