US military tweets, deletes New Year’s Eve message about dropping bombs

Washington (CNN)US Strategic Command, the unified military force that controls the launch of nuclear weapons, tweeted an unusual New Year’s Eve message on Monday featuring B-2 bombers dropping 30,000-pound conventional weapons at a test range.

“#TimesSquare tradition rings in the #NewYear by dropping the big ball…if ever needed, we are #ready to drop something much, much bigger,” the tweet from US Strategic Command’s official account said.
The post, later deleted, included a sizzle reel initially released earlier this year, showing a B-2 bomber dropping “a pair of conventional Massive Ordnance Penetrators (MOP) at a test range,” the Pentagon said.
