    US military pilots complain hands tied in ‘frustrating’ fight against ISIS

    U.S. military pilots carrying out the air war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are voicing growing discontent over what they say are heavy-handed rules of engagement hindering them from striking targets.

    They blame a bureaucracy that does not allow for quick decision-making. One Navy F-18 pilot who has flown missions against ISIS voiced his frustration to Fox News, saying: "There were times I had groups of ISIS fighters in my sights, but couldn't get clearance to engage.”

    He added, “They probably killed innocent people and spread evil because of my inability to kill them. It was frustrating."

    Talk about frustrating. The chump in chief puts our forces in harms way and then wont let them kill the enemy. The "JV" team WANTS to die, and I want our military to oblige them.

    Nothing substantive is going to happen until Obama is out of the whitehouse-that dog wont hunt.

    If only there were fewer rules in place to prevent bombing civilians.

    The Israeli's are in the process of ironing out those rules before we get to use them...

    If only we had a president who didn't surrender to terrorists, and as if the salt in the wound-to put our military men and women at risk in doing so.

    He can't even **** or get off the pot.

    "Surrender to the terrorists."

    So ISIS wouldn't exist if Obama hadn't "surrendered."

    When did that happen, incidentally? Oh, wait, nevermind. January 2009, right?

    They wouldn't exist as a defacto state, no.

    It happened gradually over years, as Obama watched them expand and capture city after city. Years of denial by this POTUS got us here.
    And now he wont even let our aircraft that HE's placing in harms way attack.

    I love it.

    Just a bunch of empty, completely unsupported nonsense fed by the right-wing propaganda.

    That would be a start. If you want to stop ISIS instead of play Air Force you'll need to ramp up the collateral damage.
