    Guess our inventory is around 4000 and that would be enough to supply us for about ten weeks worth at the current rate.

    Each one of these missiles costs over a million to produce. The cost aside, how long does it take to produce one because we could be totally depleted of them in 10 weeks? And if we are short in supply of Tomahawks, how many other weapons got severely slashed in the budget that are needed to maintain this "air war"?
    As I understand it, Tomahawks are long range guided missiles typically used in the initial stages of an assault to minimize risk to pilots on some targets. We probably wont use them on an extended basis. And, they are pricey mojo's.

    As for no one being home, I think it was planned that way. Today we want to fight a war in which no one dies, the computer game mentality.
    Hate to say it but this is one reason why arabs should be the tip of the spear against ISIS-they play by arab rules which mean they fight to kill the enemy. We should be paying for the fuel and handing over all our "dumb" bomb inventory over to the arabs to use.

Some of those countries are known to be funding the terrorists, or having training camps for them! What is going on here, and how did we persuade them to bomb their own "brethren?" Is it a matter of "assist us now, or go it alone later?" It would be the same as us bombing Sweden or Poland because Qatar was upset with them, wouldn't it? Weird....

    Yep the Saud, Qatar, and the UAE have been funding most Sunni Terrorists. They will do whatever they can to Subjugate, kill and enslave over the Shia and other Arabs. You have to remember.....they Think they are special.

    France was Bombing ISIS in Iraq. Some of the others were sending humanitarian Aid for the Christians and Some Weapons and Aid to the Kurds.

    For some reason they never extend the logic beyond their immediate "point".

If the government of Mexico wanted to let Mr. Villa and his friends invade the U.S. and commit crimes there, that was its sovereign decision, and we had no business trying to impose our will on Mexico.

    Did I detect a bit of sarcasm in your post, or didn't I understand your reasoning? :

    Yeah use to be 500k a pop. But don't worry whatever BO blows off he has to restock due to the arms treaties. Just like he did after Libya and using all those Tomahawks. But kept that on the downlow with his attempts at budgeting.

    I think it would be fair to state the 100 budgeted for 2015 will be used up before 2015 even arrives. And when you consider all air weapons took a major cut in funding, how many other weapons will be the same?
