The U.S. dropped the “mother of all bombs” in Afghanistan on Thursday, and Americans have taken to Twitter to react to the news.

The 21,600-pound GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb — the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal — was dropped on a suspected ISIS target at 7 p.m. local time Thursday. First developed during the Iraq War, the bomb has never before been used in combat.

“I’ve studied the #MOAB for yrs. It’s a disgusting device, designed to inflict maximum casualties. It’s a carpet bomb. Should be illegal,” tweeted “Gasland” director Josh Fox. The bombing comes just days after a major U.S. airstrike in Syria.
