The Washington Free Beacon was told by an official of U.S. Central Command that warning pamphlets were dropped on ISIS (aka ISIL) targets 45 minutes before bombing sorties were to be flown. This was done "to minimize the risks to civilians."
This disclosure comes soon after it was learned that U.S. pilots were forbidden to drop 75 percent of their ordnance on targets lest they harm innocent civilians. The most recent dropping of warning pamphlets was on a convoy of trucks near the city of Al-Bukamal in Syria.
The leaflets read: "Get our of your trucks now and run away from them."
The original text, which was penned by President Obama, and only disclosed on this blog, read as follows:
Unlike you, we do not wish to harm civilians in your un-Islamic war. And unlike you, our brave men and women who proudly serve in our armed forces wear uniforms to distinguish them from defenseless, unarmed civilians.
Since we cannot tell an ISIL mujaheddin fighting for the cause of the Caliphate, from a civilian member of "The Religion of Peace," we are dropping these WARNING LETTERS which will allow the civilians among you to LEAVE THIS AREA IMMEDIATELY! as our next dropping will be bombs, and we do not want to hurt of kill them.
If you are still reading this letter at this time, you have 45 minutes to get out of the area. But if the time frame we are giving you is insufficient, please let me know--you have my cell phone number.
Our bombs will only seek out empty buildings, the occasional U.S. armored vehicles you unlawfully stole from our Iraqi allies, and, Allah willing, some loaded oil tankers.
We wish no one in civilian dress any harm, and we will avoid targeting mosques and any Christian churches you have razed and plan to rebuild as a conquest mosque.
Finally, I want to assure you that our ordnance is "environmentally friendly" and will not hurt wildlife or cause undo distress.
Have a nice day.
Barack Hussein Obama, Supreme Leader of the West
This is like going on a job interview and being asked: "What is your worst quality?" and you answer, "I'm lazy except for when I beat my dog."
We are not going to end up with the outcome we want and desperately need when we have a JV president who is clueless in the saddle.
