The military's "mother of all bombs" attack of an ISIS tunnel complex Thursday sent a "message" to North Korea its bomb-testing tunnels are vulnerable too, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan said.

In an interview with WABC Radio host Rita Cosby, the former columnist and broadcaster, who blasted President Donald Trump for the cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase, said the non-nuclear MOAB strike in Afghanistan was a good thing.

"This is attacking ISIS and al-Qaida – I'm all for it," Buchanan said, adding Trump is "sending a message that we are prepared to take risks, the risks of wider war."

"This is a second message that's being sent – and it's to the North Koreans," Buchanan said. 

"The North Koreans, they have their tests, their atom bombs deep in tunnels, and I think what it is, is a message to them that we can get down in there and kill your people underground as well as above ground – and so I would think that's a message to North Korea as well."

He also praised the action as a sign that not only is Trump "listening to his generals and is getting much tougher," but he "does not look like [former President] Barack Obama to me, no doubt about it."
