Warning Pamphlets Dropped on Islamic State ‘to Minimize the Risks to Civilians’


In an earlier post Pilots confirm that Obama blocks 75 percent of ISIS strikes, the absurd seemed to know no limits. But apparently not so. We now drop leaflets 45 minutes ahead of bombing sorties in order to “to minimize the risks to civilians.” Are we at war or not? Dresden, the bombing of Japan and turning their cities into glass apparently are remnants of a once great world power who was willing to protect its people at all costs.

“The bottom line is that we will not stoop to the level of our enemy and put civilians more in harm’s way than absolutely necessary,”

A U.S. Central Command official confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon on Monday that warning pamphlets were dropped on Islamic State targets 45 minutes before bombing sorties in order “to minimize the risks to civilians.”

The confirmation comes on the heels of disclosures that U.S. military pilots were blocked from dropping 75 percent of their ordinance on likely targets due to concerns about harming civilians.

“You went 12 full months while ISIS was on the march without the U.S. using that air power and now as the pilots come back to talk to us they say three-quarters of our ordinance we can’t drop, we can’t get clearance even when we have a clear target in front of us,” Royce said at the time. “I don’t understand this strategy at all because this is what has allowed ISIS the advantage and ability to recruit.”

When asked to address Royce’s statement last week, a Pentagon official defended the Obama administration’s policy and said that the military is working to prevent civilian casualties.

“The bottom line is that we will not stoop to the level of our enemy and put civilians more in harm’s way than absolutely necessary,” the official told the Free Beacon, explaining that the military often conducts flights “and don’t strike anything.”

    Steady as she goes. The media both left and right including the retired generals pontificating about Obama’s non existent defeat ISIS strategy will not come out and say he does not want to defeat these murderers. Meanwhile Hillary, his co-architect of their Arab Spring and the proponents of this whole middle east mess is lauded for her plan to do what Barry Hussein Mohammed Bin Obama has no plan to do. As are most of us on the right, I wait with bated breath for today’s Obama dog and pony show with French President Hollande. And while his Pentagon enablers doctor the pitiful little he is doing in the middle east I long for the simpler days when we boycotted french fries.

        He said 30,000 refugees over the next two years plus the 20,000 sneaking in and theres Obama’s 50,000 for France. And if only 10% are terrorists its a home run for the socialist Hollande.

    Just another example of the winds shifting and obozo standing with them. The perpetual shite has hit the fan today. His lies are all being exposed…be afraid of traveling until Feb 2016? Really? Doctoring intelligence to suit the word of the day. Totalitarian special snowflakes running amok screaming for control of everyone’s “possibly hurtful” freedom of speech. Russians violating Turkish airspace, downed jet, downed helicopter, emergency meeting of the great countries…dang obozo better have his wheaties on board today.

        The Canadians may not be as stupid as Americans but they are just as stupid as Americans. North Americans are stupid! Who believes daddy and grandpa and uncle and older brother won’t be far behind? Like the cockroach and the crocodile still here after millions of years so too will the muslims survive and will be here long after those of european descent die off once their culture, traditions and religion are submerged.

        I was with about 12 Canadians a day or two after the election; they were all ‘centrists’ and all said that this Troudeau is not quite the leftwinger he portrayed himself to be. Aren’t THEY lucky?

    This just get more insane as we go! We know Obama is not interested in fighting ISIS but the two stories you have posted recently confirm that not only does he not want to fight them but he wants to make sure no harm comes to them. If we are not going to fight we should just get out of there and stop putting on this charade.

      There is no question in my mind he has no desire in stopping ISIS from continuing their march. We could have taken out the oil trucks several years ago.

    This is the Pentagon that bloggers feel will not fire on its own citizens when the coming civil war commences? Thy will fire on their own mothers if Valjar so orders.
    As for the warning pamphlets, that’s an easy one. Either of Boxer’s or Feinstein’s husband has the printing contract and they are paid $1.00 for each pamphlet which cost 1/2 of a penny to print.

      How many died trying to fly low level to drop the leaflets? Yes, Val Jar will have us all killed. Our little Iranian born Muslim Rasputin.
