I say if you don't turn the war over to our generals and let them fight and win the war bring our troops home and admit defeat. I was almost sent to the Middle East back in the late 70's early 80's to stand on a street corner with a bulls eye painted on me, an unloaded weapon, and orders not to shoot until after being shot. Here we go again.
It's always comical and sad watching how conservative war-hawks always think they are the best Commanding armchair General that every graced the planet. Especially when their answers are always the same... KILL MORE! FASTER!!!!! NO PRECISE TARGET NECESSARY!!!!!!!!!!
American and allied warplanes are equipped with the most precise aerial arsenal ever fielded. But American officials say they are not striking significant, and obvious, Islamic State targets out of fear that the attacks will accidentally kill civilians. Killing such innocents could hand the militants a major propaganda coup and alienate the local Sunni tribesmen, whose support is critical to ousting the militants, and Sunni Arab countries that are part of the fragile American-led coalition.
But many Iraqi commanders and some American officers say that exercising such prudence with airstrikes is a major reason the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or Daesh, has been able to seize vast territory in recent months in Iraq and Syria. (Did they just say that?)
U.S. Caution in Strikes Gives ISIS an Edge, Many Iraqis Say
Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?
