Plans to Use Two Pillows Instead of One
|Defense Secretary Ashton Carter|
Under pressure at home and abroad to wage a more robust war against the Islamic State, Obama administration officials said Thursday that the U.S. is prepared to expand its “rules of engagement” in the fight after the extremist group’s horrific attacks in Paris.
Top national security advisers to President Obama said the U.S.-led coalition is increasing airstrikes against fuel trucks and other “high value” targets of the terrorist organization in Syria and Iraq. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said attacks on fuel conveys reflect “changed tactics.”
White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said surveillance flights by coalition partners have provided the U.S. with intelligence to bomb oil infrastructure of the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.
“We’ve increased the targeting of ISIL oil infrastructure in recent days with great success in targeting trucks that were carrying oil that brings significant amounts of revenue to ISIL......”
So while the Russians and French are taking out communication facilities, headquarters and training camps in order to chop off the head of the snake, Obama plans to use the might of the U.S. Air Force and Navy to bomb oil barrels and TRUCKS. While your at it Barry, why not drop a few 1000 pounders and murder a couple of goat herds while your at it. Yeah, that will show um!
