Posted on 06/13/2014 3:03:26 PM PDT by Patton@Bastogne
Why hasn't President Obama unleashed U.S. Air Power (close-air support) to assist Iraq's democratically-elected government from being conquered by ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) ?
What about Al-Qaeda's GIFT from Obama-Clinton of over 400 Surface-to-Air missiles stolen from Libya's former military arsenal ?
Is Obama afraid of being caught with "blood on his hands" with the death of U.S. Air Force / Army pilots ...
... killed when providing CAS (close-air-support) to prevent Iraq from being conquered by the ISIS ?
One can speculate. Sadly, in this case, facts are harder to come by.
This is unbelievable but unfortunately I believe it.
Obama’s gifts of 20,000 MANPADs, sarin gas,
and SAMs, and more to ISIS (then “the rebels”)
are meant to murder stupid cracker Americans
who ARE not protected like the EXEMPT
.... but later. Later.
How well trained must a person be to hit an F-16 at strafing speed with a Stinger?
Are Stingers Laser/Fly-by-wire/IR or just old “Canon EOS”, AKA: point and shoot?
Obama can only do what the Iranians and Sauds let him do. According to a Saudi Prince, American drones are about to provide air support for Iranian ground forces.
Range is 3 miles, max speed in Mach 2.2.
I think the training needed is probably minimal.
Shoulder held missiles can’t reach B-1s flying at 36,000 ft doing Mach 1.5.
Also, laser guided with low frequency — theoretically, the target does not get warned of a missile lock. So, when you get blown out of the sky, it’s a surprise.
Given the rag tag nature of the invading ‘army’, we could rain on their parade very nicely using nothing but drones.
I don’t think the problem is missing stingers, it is missing testicles.
Or he could want them to take over Iraq. He sure had no problem with them taking over Egypt and Libya. Heck he even wanted to help them in Syria as well. What we got in the WH is a Islamo who wants to be a hero to Islam.
Well there is one sure way to find out —
Put a gaggle of Generals on a plane to Bagdad and see how many of them chicken out at the last minute.
Nero was violin player, I guess Obama is a golfer.
B1s don’t do Cas or drop bombs from Mach 1.5. Nor can the stingers reach above about 10k regardless of the speed.
Isn’t O going golfing and fund-raising this weekend? Who’s in charge at the WH while all of these crises unfold?
Is that constitutional?
