    UAE's first female fighter pilot led airstrike against ISIS

    UAE's 1st female fighter pilot led strike against ISIS - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri may be ISIS' worst nightmare.The first female fighter pilot in the United Arab Emirates, she led a strike mission this week against the terror group, that country's ambassador to the United States said Thursday.
    "She is (a) fully qualified, highly trained, combat ready pilot, and she led the mission," Yousef Al Otaiba told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
    The UAE has joined the United States and a handful of other Arab nations in conducting airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.
    So damned awesome.



    Not only a female, but a Muslim female from a Muslim country.

    Hot diggity.

    That is awesome.

    What's next, women driving cars? Leaving home without the burka and a male relative? Sounds like a slippery slope to me!

    I think it is amusing because don't the ISIS extremists believe if they get killed by women they won't go to heaven?

    If that's true that makes this even more spectacular.

    Bravo Zulu to the UAE! Of course we still have some here in America who refer to female pilots as "boobs on the ground"....

    Fine use of psychological warfare, if it's true.

    I'm actually inclined to wonder whether the rampant extremism of ISIS might actually cause reactionary backlash in the rest of the Middle East, leading many more Conservative nations to ease off of the strictness of their own customs.

    I don't know if they believe that or not, but I hope they do. Let's be sure to tell them that they're being killed by women.

    Indeed. Truly awesome.
