Spicer on MOAB and ISIS: "In order to defeat the group, we must defy them operational space, which we did."

Count “Supernatural” actor Misha Collins among those who are troubled by the news:
This bomb is almost as big as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. No one has ever used it before. ExplOsion 1 mile across. Trump must be stopped. https://t.co/fJpsgay7Oj

Collins managed to spark quite a panic in his timeline:
@mishacollins Oh my God. That's totally barbaric. Trump does need to be stopped. The sooner the better

@mishacollins I'm sorry people are such immature, self centered dicks that they voted him into office in the first place.
I hope he can be stopped.

@mishacollins He's just bombing willy nilly, no congressional approval. What the fuck, man?

But Collins’ comparison was taken issue with:
Hiroshima 13-18 kt TNT
GBU-43/B 0,010 kT TNT
— TeraEuro (@TeraEuro) April 13, 2017
@mishacollins Uh Little Boy was equivalent to 15,000 tons of TNT and the MOAB is equivalent to 11 Tons. You're sensationalizing.
