The ongoing mantra of Republican presidential candidates is lets have a bombing party one day after the next. Ted wants to carpet bomb the desert, and Donald has a Great Plan to bomb the hell out of ISIS who hide in cities. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter made clear that Drones are going to enter the campaign against ISIS so you Muslim bad people better learn to duck. “We will begin by collapsing ISIS control over both cities(Raqqa and Mosul) and then engage in elinimation operations.”
In other words, identify a city where ISIS is fighting, send in the planes, then send in the drones, and wipe out the bad people. Unfortunately, in the end some boots on the ground will really have to do the work of wiping out ISIS. Now, exactly who are those boots on the ground? They certainly are not American boots!
