CHECK FIRE! (Where's The Target ... WTF?)

U.S. bombers hold fire on Islamic State targets amid ground intelligence blackout - Washington Times:

 Nearly 75 percent of U.S. bombing runs targeting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria returned to base without firing any weapons in the first four months of 2015, holding their fire mainly because of a lack of ground intelligence and raising questions about President Obama’s key tactic in pushing back an enemy that continues to expand its territory in the war zone.
President Obama will not put troops on the ground to ensure that bombing attacks can apply effective fire against ISIS and other extreme terrorist groups.   And yet he continues to order high-altitude bombing attacks against .. ghost targets.  It "looks good in video", but in Real Life it's a waste of time and resources because .. ineffective!

Montrose Toast:
He either fears his fate too much,Or his deserts are small,That dares not put it to the touchTo gain or lose it all.

Since America (in the person of President Obama) has consistently demonstrated lack-of-resolve to directly attack ISIS, what the fracas are we doing in Iraq and Syria to stop their pernicious attacks on innocents?  Either execute war against our enemies, or yield the battleground to them entirely!

And thus, prove that America is a Paper Tiger,

He is the President, elected and re elected. It is our duty as loyal Americans to fully support his policies. We should not publically criticize his decisions.

Our pilots are constrained by the administration's policy of minimal military kinetic impact, which compliments our foreign policy of leading from behind.
