Overshadowing the United States’ “mother of all bombs” or the MOAB, Iran is now claiming to have the “father of all bombs.” The inflammatory claim was made by a top commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).
The bomb was developed under a special request of the IRGC, the corps’ Aerospace Force commander, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, said in an interview on Friday, according to RT. “Following a proposal by the Aerospace Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), [Iran’s] Defense Industries [Organization] manufactured a 10-ton bomb. These bombs are at our disposal,” PressTV cited the commander as saying. “They can be launched from Ilyushin aircraft and they are highly destructive,” he added, without providing any further details on the capabilities of the ordinance.
The Iranian commander compared the “father of all bombs” to the U.S.’s MOAB. The new Iranian name, however, might trigger a bomb naming dispute with Russia, as they have already possessed a non-nuclear ordnance known as the “daddy,” for its previously dubbing: the “father of all bombs.”
Russia’s daddy was technically the first FOAB. The Aviation Thermobaric Bomb of Increased Power, known as the “father of all bombs” (FOAB), was successfully tested by Russia in 2007. It was said to have impressive results for a non-nuclear device. The “daddy” will net a 44-ton yield when detonated. The bomb also explodes mid-air, and vaporizes its targets, collapses structures, and leaves a “moon-like scorched landscape”. “We believe it’s real,” said retired Col. Rick Francona, a military analyst and former US military attache in Syria. “The Russians have been among the pioneers of these thermobaric bombs,” the analyst said according to CNN in 2017. “I don’t have any doubt that they could build this,” Francona said. “It falls under their [Russia’s] technological capabilities.”
But that won’t stop Iran from claiming they also have a FOAB and further amplifying the already immense war rhetoric.
Them goat feckers don’t even know their own father, let alone their new bombs father.
Israel has the illegitimate bastard of all bombs…..
ok THATS funny!
Well GOOD! I hope they do! So they can defend themselves against the US NWO ISREALHELL controlled piles of shit that rape and steal and murder and occupy and overthrow in the name of the US FLAG! I hope they kill all the braindead moronic brainwashed fucksticks!
Yep G. Tele Viv Ground Zero And that nutnyahoo psychopath. poof gone. beautiful baby!!
Got your iodine levels up and ready. Take selenium with iodine.
If taking a direct hit from a nuclear bomb, your troubles are over, Christ awaits your return. But for the majority survivors of a nuclear exchange, your thyroid gland is going to take in cancer causing type of iodine unless your thyroid is saturated with healthy safe iodine.
I have seen thyroid cancer. It isn’t pretty.
I guess it is a sad commentary on our society, but I did acquire some iodine pills for nuclear war or fall out.
thermobaric bombs are non-nuclear.
Iran will be building the pipeline that the Syrian war was all about. It was to go from Qatar through Saudi Arabia and Syria to the Mediterranean to supply gas to Europe. Now Iran will build it going the other direction from Qatar through Iran through Iraq and Syria to Latakia. Qatar basically switched sides when it saw it’s gas would not be going through Saudi Arabia and cut a deal with Iran to pipe it the other way.
The pipeline route will also be a link in the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and will have a rail line also built from Pakistan to the Mediterranean. Iran will run the civilian port in Latakia and the Russians will control the military facilities.
This is the opposite result the deep state bosses wanted. It will make Iran a stronger regional power and help defeat empire’s sanctions. I know the cheese popes are not happy.
Iran doesn’t have anything even close to our MOAB; they’re just talking smack again. Their air force and navy are older planes and ships from the 60s and 70s. While they’re good at stirring up trouble in other places they would lose big time challenging any major power. And we still have nukes that can put a crater where Tehran now sits. Let’s hope we never have to use those.
Forgive me but can you please explain how iran has done ANYTHING to us? Name something they have done to warrant all the shit we give them. Oh ya… we are isrealhells beech I forgot. I am waiting for your reply…
How ’bout this,not so Genius: Iran was the main supplier of IED’s that killed and maimed thousands of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. They were behind the explosion that killed hundreds of Marines in Lebanon, they are also suspected of assassinating a Naval officer in San Diego in the 80’s. The officer was the commander of Vincente that shot down a Iranina civillian air liner. Iran has yet to be paid back for their aggression toward us. Genius,you are a sorry POS.
OK smarty pants lol, How about YOU explain why our troops were in those places. Oh ya your an enemy combatant if you defend yourself from an illegal invasion HUH? OH suspected of assasination of A ASSHOLE THAT SHOT DOWN ONE OF YOUR CIVILIAN AIRLINERS? I think the payback is on YOU DUMB FUCK! Sorry but you just proved yourself a complete idiot. You need an IQ over room temperature to argue with me……
How ’bout this ‘the mother in law’ of all bombs.
Shut the fuck up asshat. You just don’t like our country. May not be perfect but it’s close enough for me
So therefor you believe in lies and propaganda and brainwashing because ummmm… yer a great amerikun? What a good patriot you are. Eat every shit sandwich that your fed as long as it’s wrapped in yer flag! I on the other hand believe in truth and JUSTICE! Something that obviously escapes your micro paradigm. I love my country, I just hate the assholes that are bloodthirsty, brainwashed, non thinking, statist, blind, mental midgets (like you). If it wasn’t for those like you and your fed reserve buddies this would be a great place. Enjoy your shit sandwich, it must be good because you can’t eat it fast enough it seems….
Genius Gets it. I get it, most people get it. Call out the frauds and their midget mentalities. Bravo G.
southside, the US soldiers had no business being in Iraq. Or Lebanon. Or Viet Nam, or Afghanistan, and the list goes on. I’m curious southside, have you ever read ‘War is a Racket’?
1.Change your handle.Your the opposite of a genius.
2. Your apparently very young,or you would know that the Iranians took over our embassy in Iran back in the 70’s and held over 400 Americans hostage for over a year.
3.Iran is a worldwide sponsor of terrorism by funding and supplying arms to both Hamas and Hezbollah.
4.Iran supplied Iraqi insurgents with bomb material and know-how to build shaped charges to plant IEd’s in Iraq responsible for the deaths and terrible injuries to to hundreds possibly thousands of American troops in Iraq.
So, Here a just a few “anythings” that the terrorist government of Iran has done over the last 40 years.
1. Perhaps you’re even younger. In 1953 the CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran through a plan dubbed operation “Ajax”. They installed the Shah and for 26 years appropriated their hydrocarbons. In 1979, the Iranian people overthrew the western puppet, threw out the oilcos, and nationalized their resources. Sure, they held embassy “employees” hostage. You do know that US embassies are the spear points for CIA covert operations doncha? These “employees” were most likely Cia connected operatives.
2. The US is the biggest sponsor of terrorists worldwide. From Operation Gladio to Al Qaeda and ISIS, to Iran Contra in Nicaragua, they have funded thousands of terrorist operations in the past.
3. Hamas and Hezbollah are the mirror opposites of Mossad, only they are local groups unlike Mossad, who operates worldwide. One person’s freedom fighter is another’s terrorist. They want foreigners out of their lands.
4.The Iranians very well could have supplied bomb making material. What about the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis killed by white phosphorus and depleted uranium that is still causing birth defects? The Iraqi invasion was predicated on false stories meant to get public approval for the war. Iraq was not involved in 9/11 nor was any threat to the US mainland…unlike the lies told to us by Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Mueller. The Iranians stood by their neighbor Iraq when they were invaded by the US. Wouldn’t the US do the same if Canada were invaded?
You have to stop listening to empire talking points and quit reading their propaganda. It is all meant to manufacture consent for intervention and war. Do yourself a favor and do some investigation into the real causes that are not shown on spook controlled media.
Like they say, there are three sides to every story. Yours, mine, and the truth.
I was in the Marines stationed in Japan when Iran took the hostages, it was 52 they held. The reason they attacked us is because we would not hand the shah over to them. He was our puppet dictator from the mid 50’s. That is why they hate us.
“And you don’t believe we are on the eve of destruction”
Where the hell does humanity think they are going?
My bomb is bigger than your bomb – really?
GOOD LET IT HAPPEN SO WE CAN SHELF THE BIBLE, AND SAY NEXT.
thermobaric bombs are not nuclear, there is o radiation – which makes the situation all the more dangerous because they are more likely to be used. they can be scaled down to hand grenade size and up to God knows what.
Thought Obama made a deal with Iran to stop their development of atomic weapons?????? What a great President!~
Norrak, both the MOAB and the FOAB bombs mentioned here are not nuclear. No radiation. Not atomic. I’m not sure if Christine above is correct about scaling them down in size; but, she’s dead right on the potential for their use is greater in many respects due to their lack of radioactive wasteland they’d cause. Just big holes and gravel below the air-burst strike point.
Iran is populated by The Mother of all a$$holes. An old 1980’s bumper sticker on the Iranian hostage crisis said, ” Nuke their a$$ and take the gas”.
Still works fur me and day best watch out fur dem hogs!
Typical braindead brainwashed idiotic non thought out reply from a buttlicking zzzziiiooonnniisssttttt.
Genius. Please tell us…how long have you been with the leftist antifa organization? If your not, then why do you use their tactics? Please tell us oh mighty one. By the way, go get bent you idjit.
Saw today @ The Washington Free Beacon that China is suspected to have built a Laser powerful enough to knock out our satellite system and is working on multiple EMP weapons. This dovetails with their testing of a cruise missile that can be fired from a container ship.
“Ain’t no time to wonder why?…whoopee we’re all doing to die” !
Keep in mind: the US usually has its hands tied in combat. The US has to worry about the media and human rights. The Russians and others do not. And it shows in their tactics. Russians do not bother with house clearing or “closing on the enemy”.
The Russians instead use Katusha rockets. This hyper volley of rockets is utterly devastating and lays waste to any opponent. All their helicopters come standard with multiple Gatling guns and rockets. They can lay down a firestorm while easily taking small arms fire.
Faced with Islamic terrorists in Chechnya they just completely levelled Grozny. It was flat. For years they set u a Hollywood style fake city to make it look like there was something there but it was just a set.
Russians do not screw about. And who has trained the Iranians? The Russians.
Maybe they can win the “mother of all battles” with it?
But I very much doubt it, especially if they send a nuke to Israel who WILL respond by sending islam back to the stone age.
They’re just talking out of their left hand wiped asses. We should have demonstrated a nuke on them in 1979 & they wouldn’t be a problem now. Nor would any of their neighbors.A good many of the illiterate population there in the Middle East probably have no clue about what we dropped on Hiroshima & Nagasaki. We should have furthered their education already.
good for Iran. They have a right for Defense just like the US and other countries. I hope Iran gets Nukes. Then maybe, no one will bother them. Worry about your own country with its roads and failing infrastructure, etc
Back in the 80’s a lot of Iranians hung out at the discos …. They were just a bunch of unlikable fuckers …
Most of them drove irocs… and thought their shit didn’t stink.
I would have banged their biches if they didn’t have mustaches.
Attn Iran: Deliver FOAB to DC ASAP!
I know very little about Iran because I ignore the US press and them loving every single war while not ever uttering an opposing peep. The people are the only ones that can end the neverending wars. Second thought people are apt to do nothing of the sort.
Yup, The moronic masses love their wars! But have no capacity to ask why they do. People are just too fucking stupid to exist and they won’t for much longer and it will be good riddance. Stupid troglodites are probably the laughing stock of the universe!
How ’bout this ‘the mother in law’ of all bombs.
southside, ah a real critical thinker. Perhaps you could let the adults have the room?
What does Iran think it will do with those bombs? Any aircraft headed our way or towards Israel will be picked off long before it gets to its destination. Even if they were successful in blowing something up they will risk nuclear retaliation. This bomb was a waste of money. The Iranians need a new plan. They could start by not funding terrorist organizations – now there’s a novel idea.
