Une bombe GBU-43 larguée en Afghanistan:"the mother of all bombs"


C'est la première fois qu'on utilisait cette bombe dans une zone de conflit.

 Voici comment on justifiait son utilisation:

 "The U.S. military has targeted similar complexes and dropped tens of thousands of bombs in Afghanistan, raising the question of why a bomb of this size was needed Thursday. It was unclear what the GBU-43 strike accomplished, as the bomb is not designed to penetrate hardened targets such a bunkers or cave complexes. A spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan did not respond to a query regarding the bomb’s effects on its intended target, an Islamic State tunnel complex in Nangahar province."
