Selva: 40 Percent Of U.S. Airstrikes Fail To Strike Islamic State Targets
Vice Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Paul Selva admitted Wednesday that 40 percent of U.S. airstrikes fail to strike “dynamic targets” in the fight against the Islamic State (IS).

Frustrated Pilots Vent About Obama's Ineffective Air War Against ISIS (Video)

Frustrated members of the U.S. Air Force are venting because their commander in chief has been keeping them from fighting an effective air campaign against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

----------------------------
Pentagon Won't Target ISIS Training Camps
The camps are spread throughout Islamic State-controlled areas of Iraq and Syria and are off limits in the U.S.-led international bombing campaign because of concerns about collateral damage, said officials familiar with planning and execution of the yearlong bombing campaign.

---------------------------
The US Air Force Is Running Out Of Bombs And Missiles In The Fight Against ISIS
The United States Air Force, which has launched over 20,000 missiles and bombs since the start of the bombing missions against ISIS over a year ago, revealed that its munitions stockpiles are now depleted.

The U.S. Air Force is now calling for a ramp-up for the funding and production of weapons, as it is using up munitions faster that they are being replenished.

---------------------------

We are bombing away at a relatively low percentage, to the point where the supply is about depleted. Soldiers are frustrated.

Obama is simply not on our team.

Lolololol. Who has actually committed ground troops to Isis?

Who else has bombed Isis as much as us?

How did 100,000 of troops and support help out during the Iraqi insurgency? What's going to happen when they leave again?

You folks have zero actual ideas and just want to repeat the same mistakes. Even worse, is how stupid people are regarding Obama. Again.... Who else is actually spending more money and resources than us? Who has actually committed ground troops?

Despite all of the resources spent...

Ex-Obama defense officials: ISIS threat 'getting worse, not better'
Two former top Obama defense officials told lawmakers Tuesday that the U.S. was not winning the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

...
"I do not believe we are winning, or we're certainly not winning fast enough," added Vickers, former under secretary of defense for intelligence under President George W. Bush and Obama.


We are just wasting resources right now. Doesn't speak well if we need ammo for any future issue that requires fast immediate action.

We spend more on our military than the rest of the planet combined (I think most adults know this by now) Time to examine where it's going.

Our Air Force is always bitching about something or other. What they should be doing is asking about their appallingly poor performance in destroying any of the enemies they have ever fought. They were going to bomb Germany into surrender. it took two massed armies to actually force the surrender. It took a nuclear weapon in Japan to force that surrender. We used huge amounts of "Air Power" in Korea and only managed to keep half the country. Vietnam was even a bigger joke. We bombed square miles of jungle and the Viet Cong supplies kept on coming. The only thing the air force does well is close air support, which they hate, and firing remote control rockets from drones which seem to kill more bystanders then actual enemies. The only problem is the enemy uses a diversified command structure that is very resistant to having its head blown off because they have an infinite number of new heads to take instant control.


The only thing the Air Force does really well is be the most efficient industrial welfare system on the planet. The Air Force spends hundreds of billions to achieve very little.

Then let Russia and France take over. We weren't doing much good anyway.
Russia seem to know the right targets.

We just bombed Assad's military last week, NOT ISIS.

And....? How does any of that suggest that Obama isn't on our team as you suggested? Still waiting to find out who has committed more resources than Obama...

It's not like the Middle East doesn't have countries with strong militaries... They don't need our money and they need to take of their problems as long as we stay out their region.

Russia isn't concerned about public opinion...

I'd rather nato take over for the West and escalate their operations where we are sharing the burden.
