Frustrated U.S. Fighter Pilots Vent About Having ‘Hands Tied’ In Air War Against ISIS

You have to remember, Obama created ISIS – so why do you think he is going to fight his own troops?  The only reason ISIS is continuing to move from town to town is our fighter pilots are so limited in the way they can fight and remember these ISIS fighters are not soldiers and don’t fight like soldiers – their strategy is to go from town to town spreading fear – cutting people’s heads off, burning them in cages, and raping the women and killing the children.  We are spending a lot of money for nothing.  Just take a look at the Iraqi soldiers (nothing but mush).  They see the enemy coming and they just drop their guns and run and leave our paid for equipment, etc.  The Kurds are the fighters and that is why our officials won’t give the Kurds anything to fight with because they would put these ISIS in the grave in a NEW YORK minute.

Also, remember when one of the generals stated, “that he asked his troops to stop and think before they killed the enemy?  Let them shoot first, really?”  Is that why we have so many dead  and disabled soldiers?  Also, remember the “rubber bullet” strategy in the war zone and the shortage of ammunition?  We must set an example – it is called kinder and gentler war!  What hog wash!  They are the enemy out there and among us! Declare this as a real war and quit pussy-footing around.

It looks like the theory in this war is –  you give the enemy a chance to kill you and if you survive, you get to shoot.

The problem with this leader is he has never led anything so what does he know about war strategy; and,  he has fired all of the competent leaders that wanted to fight this war like it should be fought.  All he knows is how to throw words around and they are all lies.

  • 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.”
  • A former U.S. Air Force general who led air campaigns over Iraq and Afghanistan also said today’s pilots are being “micromanaged,” and the process for ordering strikes is slow — squandering valuable minutes and making it possible for the enemy to escape.
  • “You’re talking about hours in some cases, which by that time the particular tactical target left the area and or the aircraft has run out of fuel. These…
