    Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be true. What a tragedy.

    ISIS is heavily entrenched in the area and getting them out is going to take a huge military effort.
    the Iraqi army evidently is not geared to stop these people and we cannot count on our allies to assist us again in iraq.

    no amount of air strikes are going to get rid of them either.

    And our action in Libya and Syria has strengthened and emboldened them, that's the tragedy in this.

    Hopefully he is raining blood and horror on ISIS as we speak and not a spray painted 'red line'.

    They were accompanied by fighter jets. That's probably where the confusion arose.

    Fighter jets are involved in the air-drop by protecting the transports. Whether they needed to lay down some suppressive fire is not known.

    I'm not sure if those people will be able to get to the supplies, if they don't use some air support?

    21st century aircraft weaponry would absolutely slaughter anyone sitting in a lousy trench.

    Furthermore those trenches have to be supplied over flat, open ground: another slaughter.

    Good news, hope it won't be the next fake "red line" we are used to lately.

    Apparently the confusion came from the Kurd's reporting American fighters were hitting ISIS around Irbil, when they were Iraqi F-16's that killed two ISIS commanders. An easy mistake, since we supplied the jets to Iraq.
