Over 100 Al Qaeda fighters killed in ‘major’ US air strike in Syria

US Bomber Air Strike

The US Air Force conducted a second “major strike” in consecutive days killing over 100 Al Qaeda fighters at a training camp in northern Syria, a defense official with knowledge of the strike told a handful of reporters at the Pentagon on Friday.

A single U.S. Air Force B-52 bomber and an undisclosed number of drones dropped 14 precision-guided bombs at noon eastern time Thursday on an Al Qaeda “basic training” camp in Syria west of the city of Aleppo near the border with Turkey, according to the official.

“This was core Al Qaeda” said the official describing the fighters.

The latest strike, likely President Barack Obama’s last as commander-in-chief, comes a day after the Pentagon said two Air Force B-2 nuclear-capable bombers dropped 108 precision-guided bombs on two ISIS training camps in Libya killing 85 fighters, according to officials.

The round-the-world strike took roughly 30 hours Wednesday, both B-2 bombers refueled five times in mid-air flying from their base in Missouri.

    It is about time to take seriously the fact that Al Quada and ISIS is about murdering anyone who disagrees with them as evidenced by the burning alive of people or slitting their throats and showing it to the whole world. They NEED to be destroyed before they destroy us.

    A score of 100 dead is not all that great when you consider the Muslims take out that many every so often in bombings. That is not much more than two weeks in Chicago.
    Don’t forget that Bergdahl ( the soldier that went awol in Afghanistan and cost several lives trying to locate him) then 5 years later gets swapped out for GITMO prisoners and is later sent to prison, was let go by the Muslim in charge. Where is the rage??? How can we accept things like this? This guy spoke the language of those who captured him and so did his father. That deal was so full of BS it should make you sick.
    No obama is not gone, his residue of people he has appointed is still hanging on like the smell of death. We will see what all Trump will do and even then it will not be enough. The military officers and everyone else he put in should be removed.

    Ovomit’s last strike…..
    How about Trump’s first (of many) strike!

    • Kenneth Hadler

      The “many” certainly have not been talked about very much in news reports.

      • randy jackson

        Agree—–my comment to the MSM would include something to the effect:
        Go F*(k yourself

    killing 85 fighters?

    Just once I would like to see a target that costs more than the bullet!

    • Rodney Steward

      AMEN, a million $$$ for 85 dead gutter rats!

    • Taking care of business!

      Yep. But there ain’t nothin’ like the constant fear, terror, dread, horror of death from above. Think about it?–can’t run, can’t hide. And if they’ve enough time, all one can do is poop in their pants, like occurred elsewhere in the world during B-52 missions. I’d rather a sporting chance against a bullet than raining bombs, artillery, screaming jet aircraft, strafing-runs, helicopters, whatever anyday. You’ve completely overlooked, missed the demoralizing, physiological aspect of the mission.

      • CharlieSeattle

        Wasted $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

        • Taking care of business!

          So you’d rather “waste” the blood of American troops and/or allies? And you’re not even counting the logistics of staging and supplying necessary equipment, then its withdrawal from the theater of action. Think everything from troops, armament, resupply, medical units, food, water, etc.–and airsupport. All encase the threat was underestimated, the enemy suddenly placing troops in the field. (Do you recall the equipment we’ve left from previous ground-attacks, equipment now in the enemy’s arsenal? You know: $$$$$$ ad nauseam.) You can’t do all of what you imagine with one bullet,”beancounter”. Again, they, the enemy, aren’t left with a remembrance, the fear of additional air strikes, with nowheres to seek cover. I doubt your scheme is any less costly than the activity taken–and we didn’t suffer a single casualty or lose a bit of hardware, if that matters to you.

            Neither Iraq or any muslim country, including Turkey, is really a ally because of islam. muslin states are an ally like Russia was during WWII, one of convenience not of compatible ideology.

            The Kurds I would support. The Kurds are the largest minority in the middle east without a country that Britain and France screwed over after WWI. Islam was forced on the Kurds centuries ago but now the small, ancient religion of Zoroastrianism is being revived in northern Iraq. Followers say locals should join because it’s a truly Kurdish belief. Others say the revival is a reaction to extremist Islam.

            …”the threat was underestimated, the enemy “”suddenly”” placing troops in the field.”

            …suddenly?? Obama and the CIA created, trained and supplied FSA/ISIS/ISIL forces in Jordan and Turkey. Why? so that the Saudi’s could run pipelines through Syria that Assad refused. The arab spring in Syria was a useful pretext like it was in Libya.

            The “Blood for Oil” BS can cease now. Withdraw and let them kill each other instead of attacking Israel. F^%$k the Saudi’s too. They need us worse than we need them. They can pay us now to protect them.

            Trump does not have make our military stronger there. Once we stop funding muslim proxies, that turn on us, and withdraw from “Blood for Oil” engagements that WE created, Trump will find our Military is the right size after all.

          • Taking care of business!

            You excel at taking what I wrote out of context. …”the threat was underestimated, the enemy “”suddenly”” [sic] placing troops in the field.” What I wrote was: All ENCASE [emphasis added] the threat was underestimated, the enemy suddenly placing troops in the field. You chose to omit “All encase.” ENCASE there was an underestimation of force and enemy reserves (“the enemy suddenly placing troops in the field.” But for cherry-picking my words, I FULLY concur with your reply. I just don’t agree with your dollar assessment and a need to commit our troops, which easily could escalate into something that I contend was avoided by the air strike.

          • CharlieSeattle

            Lol, You bytch about your poorly chosen “underestimated” v the facts.

            Obama and the CIA created, trained and supplied FSA/ISIS/ISIL forces in Jordan and Turkey.

            That is like a describing a rape as an “underestimated escalation of non-consensual sex.”

          • Taking care of business!

            One again, foul-mouth, you’ve twisted-up my reply, or selectively skipped over points. Your writing and comprehension skills (?) rate with your anger and vulgarity. Don’t bother to reply potty-mouth, I’m deleting before I waste more time with you. Going on with you is like dealing with someone with the sensibility of a brick wall.

          • CharlieSeattle

            Thx for not disagreeing!

  • dmttbt

    The news people are saying that they believe Trump is enjoying all the ceremony of the inauguration and that they had feared that he would not participate. It would not have hurt my feelings had he not participated. We do not have royalty or do we.
    The news are now saying that Trump will not pursue a conviction of Hillary or Bill. That is disturbing to me and it smacks of high level Mafia.

    • goldie

      President Trump won’t, but AG Jeff Sessions WILL.

      • CharlieSeattle

        TBD

      • Deplorable Patriot

        Yep and we can scream that now because yesterday he took the gloves off it will be so great to see us punish all law breakers all the way to the top. Sessions would give his own mother a ticket if she broke the law. MAGA

    • kbfallon

      The problem with your comment is that you mentioned the news…and news people……recall all of the lies they have continued to spout about him and what they “speculate” what he will or will not do….listen to what HE says and go from there….remember the liberal media HATES him and laughed at the thought of him being elected….the jokes on them now.

    • Rodney Steward

      Wouldn’t call it royalty more like CLASS that we haven’t seen in years, unlike the hate America POS, we now have a true lover of America!!

  • snowyriver

    Why is the current administration … ooops past administration.. fighting ISIS with one hand and helping them with the other?

    • texexpatriate

      Because it is a Democrat administration. Obama, a Muslim, wants to look like he is not a Muslim.

      • kbfallon

        i’ll bet he wished he had a rock to crawl under while he sat there and listened to President Trump’s inauguration speech….

        • Rodney Steward

          HA, HA, HA, or even a turtle shell, or dried cow patty!!!
