Barack’s Ineffective Bombing
When President Obama addressed the nation last Thursday to inform us that he was finally taking action against the radical jihadists in Iraq, I suggested he wasn’t doing enough. Yesterday, Lt. General William Mayville, director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, briefed reporters on the status of the bombing campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or ISIS and concluded:
“U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq have slowed ISIL’s operational tempo and temporarily disrupted their advances toward the province of Erbil. However, these strikes are unlikely to affect ISIL’s overall capabilities… I in no way want to suggest that we have effectively contained or that we are somehow breaking the momentum of the threat posed by ISIL. …There are no plans to expand the current air campaign.”
Mayville also noted that ISIL was adapting its tactics to avoid our airstrikes, saying, “They are now starting to dissipate and to hide amongst the people.”
Sounds like it read the Hamas handbook. No doubt ISIL has seen how the world has berated Israel rather than Hamas for civilian casualties in Gaza.
This enemy is fanatical, barbaric and unconstrained by politically correct rules of war. A dozen or so drone strikes, authorized by Pentagon lawyers, following the ineffective and politically correct rulebook of the left, will not defeat them.

My Opinion: Hey, Y’all. Sorry about the civilian casualties. Maybe next time they’ll point to the ISIL members to save their asses from being blown to smithereens. If you’re going to be killed by them, or killed by us, why not do something good as a last act and point them out? Maybe we’ll try not to kill you.
How come American’s in general are afraid to kill when killing needs to be done, when ISIL/Hamas/Muslims will kill anyone, anywhere, anytime “just because?” If you think you can live in harmony & peace with Muslims, you live in a dream world. One of the basic beliefs of their “religion” is convert or kill non-Muslims. If you think you are dealing with Human Beings, just stop and look at the images coming out of Iraq. Humans do not do things that this “cult of death” are capable of.
Like any War, this is going to take time, materials, Men & Women, and (most of all) Dedication to Win. My Dad always told us kids: “If you don’t go in with the total desire to win, you are always going to lose the fight. And you Win any way you can.”
