Are you talking about the civilians ISIS is hiding behind?

Or the civilians that are knowingly 'hanging out' with ISIS, and know exactly what is coming their way?

Give me a break....

It is sad, but that's part of war and it ain't pretty.


Nope. You don't get a break. Sorry. It's sad, I know.

I'm talking about civilians. People who are civil, I suppose. That's who I''m talking about.

That is all.

Honestly this whole campaign should be drones, and cruise missiles only. I don't want a jet in the sky for them to scream at and curse. I don't want a news headline for who fired the cruise missile, or piloted the drone.

Their enemy should be faceless, just as they are. They want to hide behind smoke, mirrors, and religion. Then we shall hide behind, napalm, phosphorous, thermite, high explosives, cruise missiles, and drones.

# Isis. I'm honestly thinking of making T-shirts. Fed Up, Chose to Kill Isis. There I even gave it a meaning.

here's what I see taking place....
the 5 regional nations : Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar and UAE participating in airstrikes

the Arab 5 are there for two primary reasons...

1: to provide political cover for the airstrikes in Syria...IOW the USA/UK/France are not a team of western Crusaders only...
instead the westerners have a coalition with Arab 'partners' in Arms

2: the aircraft of these Arab partners will accompany the western pilots, but have secondary targets
the western pilots will have the primary targets to hit...
the Arab airforces will be the easier planes to shoot down, they are being used as air-clutter to help shield the USA aircrafts...
and as the easier targets by either the Syrian airforces or targets of the ISIS captured SAM missiles

I'm wondering where is Israel in all this?

They have a powerful air force with experienced combat pilots and F-16 Falcons which could attack ISIS, I mean daesh, and help the US and allies.

But they just sit there doing nothing.

An interesting observation on corporate structure and higher ups in gov't is that the guys you see less often and aren't getting their hands dirty on the ground floor are usually the ones in charge of the operation.

Israel shot down a Syrian fighter jet after it flew over the Golan Heights, the Israeli army said today, the first such incident in almost 30 years and the neighbors' most serious clash since the start of Syria's civil war.

The Sukhoi fighter was downed by a U.S.-made Patriot missile fired by Israeli military personnel, and the crew ejected over Syrian territory across the Golan frontier, the Israeli army said. The attack came as the U.S. launched its first airstrikes against Islamic State positions in Syria in a major expansion of its campaign to defeat the militants



Israel can't be openly a coalition member...or else the 5 Arab States would pull out
so they stealth

Oh how I dread when the numbers start coming in on how many civilians were killed. : (


Do you mean the "civilians" who have had their weapons removed before the media is allowed into the area?
