August 8, 2014 -- Video from two U.S. military targeted airstrikes against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) targets in northern Iraq. The first attack occurred about 6:45 a.m. EDT when two F/A-18 aircraft dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a mobile artillery piece near Irbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdistan region. ISIL was using this artillery to shell Kurdish forces defending the city, where U.S. personnel are located. Two additional air strikes occurred later in the day, the last at about 11:20 a.m. EDT when four F/A-18 aircraft successfully struck a stationary ISIL convoy of seven vehicles and a mortar position near Irbil, neutralizing the mortar and convoy.

    We should flatten everything they have that has wings,wheels or tracks.They won't have too much fight in them when they are on foot.

    Who's side are you on if suggesting doing the most damage to their weapons is inappropriate?

    This is what the US Airforce should do to all the ISIS military. I do not buy that given our intelligence capabilities, we don't know where the targets are. This is a political decision, not to strike, (remember Vietnam), same decision, same stupid political involvement.
