Not a big deal in comparison to nuclear weapons, certainly. However, the HE compunds of today yield anywhere from 200% to 800% higher explosive velocities than TNT. When talking explosive velocities, twice the velocity yields 4 times the destructive force. Since this is described as the biggest non-nuclear bomb in the world, I would estimate the HE used has at least 5X the explosive velocity of TNT, meaning 25 times the destructive power of TNT.

Then there are other factors, such as shaped charge technology directing the majority of the force in a desired direction (ie: straight down) instead of the old-fashioned spherical explosions of yesteryear.

Not much compared to nuclear, true. But I can guarantee you would NOT want to be under one when it goes off, even hiding in a deep cave.


The MOAB is powerful for sure. As I said in my above post, it seemed to me the media was making this bomb out to be almost equivalent to a nuke by how they were describing it. Yes, I believe you are correct: double the velocity and you quadruple the force (laws of physics).

Holy sheeet!  Now, I am thinking mass destruction needs to be reined on them on them.  They are not human.  They are worse than monsters.  They are demons.

I just read that it cost $16 million.  If I understand the article correctly.  And it cost over $300 million to develop.

Lily003    Shocked


This is where our money needs to spent. Not on handouts and Healthcare. I will never have a problem with any amount of money that goes toward killing those that wish to kill us.

Fox News criticized for playing the song "America, Red, White, and Blue" during the bombing video. Is there anything left that liberals wont wine about? Roll Eyes

    Can't agree here.
    I think they're people who know what they're doing, enjoy what they're doing, consider themselves righteous, honest people who are doing what their Prophet said to do.
    Are they evil-doers?, absolutely.  Should they be killed?, the sooner the better.  Should they suffer a slow miserable death?, I hope so.  But!, a MOAB obliteration is fine by me too.
    Islam is Islam and those SOB's are Islam.

Big deal. 21K pounds isn't all that much. That's less than 11 tons.
