Obama Sending Bombers To Middle East

B-52 Bomber

The Obama administration is sending multiple B-52 bombers to Qatar in order to combat ISIS. Personally, I believe this move is a little extreme for a “JV team.”

The U.S. Air Force has deployed B-52 long-ranger bombers to the Middle East, for the first time since the Gulf War ended, to conduct strikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, officials said Saturday.

“The B-52s will provide the coalition continued precision and deliver desired airpower effects,” Lt. Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., commander, U.S. Air Forces Central Command and Combined Forces Air Component said.

I’m old enough to remember when carpet bombing terrorists during the Bush administration was evil. During the Obama administration, it’s apparently okey dokey. As an aside, the media caught some pretty cool footage of the bombers arriving in Qatar. It’s below the fold.


Oh come on, you knew it was coming. *phrasing*
