    Sounds pretty good to me.

    As a side issue, which Gump in the US makes up these stupid operation names ??. This one “Operation Inherent Resolve” drives me mad, just the sound of it makes me cringe.

      Its all to do with the bastardisation of the true meaning of words of course.

      ‘Gay’ being a prime example. It was never used to describe men who insert their penis into the orifice’s of another man until recently.

        I knew I wasnt losing my mind.When I started school in the late 80s, we were taught that the word gay was synonymous to happy..I honestly dont know when it changed

    The strike stats of SOJTF – “Operation Inherent Liberation” seem like damp squib next to the Syria-Russia allies figures.

    One wonders about the efficiency of flying bombs all the way from Russia in strategic combat aircraft instead of shipping the bombs by sea and land to the theater and then loading them onto combat aircraft only for the last 100 or 200 miles to delivery. Though I suppose Russia has lots of fuel and the strategic aircraft can return to strategic readiness near Ukraine in a few hours vs the weeks it might take to return tactical aircraft to readiness after Syrian deployment. Plus their is repeated offloading and risk of ambush on Syrian highways.

    In the words, the U.S. is fighting a fake war against ISIS Daesh.
