ABC News Confirms Air Strikes Have Begun In Syria

Reuters
American airstrikes against ISIS targets are underway 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."

In a national address on Sept. 10, President Obama said the first part of his strategy to counter ISIS was to “conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists.”

“Moreover, I have made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are. That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL [ISIS] in Syria as well as Iraq,” Obama said. “This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”

This is all about getting rid of Assad, which the American people said no to last year, so they cooked this farce up.

ISIS has received training from the US, and weapons, now they're the enemy. But who are the rebels Obama will now arm? At least half are likely jihadists/radical Mohammedans. Same as before.

Ask ISIS fighters in the town of Raqqa if those 1000lb. chemical warheads on those Tomahawk cruise missiles are a farce.

Wait?! What!? We're using chemical weapons [warheads] on those Tomahawks? That violates all sort of treaties.

The farce is we built up ISIS, along with others who built them up, including Turkey, Qatar, the Saudi's, Britain.

We don't use black powder anymore sparky. The explosive compounds in our munitions are chemical mixtures.

So what do ya think, ex? Should we drop some flowers on ISIS, wish 'em well, and go home? I'm not saying that's necessarily a bad plan.

I know as sure as I know anything, if that was Obama's plan, he'd be hammered by the GOP for letting a small fire have a really good chance of turing into an inferno. Hell, he's already been criticized along those lines.

Wrong question. Months ago ISIS had long convoys, we did nothing. IOW, they were sitting ducks. This is merely a backhanded way to get them, who we have helped build up, and get Assad at the same time, hit some of his forces. They couldn't get Assad last year as the People said no, so they concocted this BS.
