    US Airstrikes Under Way in Syria[W:354]

    US Airstrikes Under Way in Syria

    American airstrikes against ISIS targets are under way in Syria, according to a Pentagon official.



    "I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL [ISIS] terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles," Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said. "Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time. The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief. We will provide more details later as operationally appropriate."

    I see, hence his "no boots on the ground" comments. Because airstrikes win wars.

    And yes, we are at war-with a new enemy-ISIS.

    Obviously, bombing people is the best way to achieve peace in volatile situations. People don't, like, want revenge for that sort of thing or anything like that.

    Here is the thing, you cant win a war against terrorists, you can win a war against a country, but not against an idealology.

    So is US Conservative happy or sad that Obama is bombing terrorists? It's hard for conservatives to keep their talking points straight nowadays, they've become so virulently Obamaphobic.

    Sure you can. Nazism and Fascism were an ideology.

    Prolly some Marxist Islamic conspiracy related to Agenda 21.

    Or maybe it's a considered policy that he slowly concluded should be followed in light of unforeseen gains by ISIS in Iraq. '

    I think I know which one you think it is.
