In this week's "The Week" magazine, I note that there is an entry saying that "An estimated 15,000 ISIS fighters have been killed in more than 5,500 U.S.-led airstrikes...". To save you folks the trouble of doing the math, that's 2.727 kills per strike---not what one would consider a highly efficient way to dispatch the bad guys!!
Now, those of you who have read my previous rants on the BS about the wonderfulness of airstrikes that air power advocates customarily foist on uneducated politicians and the public will be expecting me to go over that ground yet again. But I'm not going to do that!
Rather, I'll cite another entry in the same magazine which reports that "...30% of all high-speed police chases end in crashes, and nearly half of the people killed are not the suspects being pursued. Indeed, the entry goes on to say that from 1979 through 2013, such chases have killed 11,506 people, including 2,456 bystanders.
Maybe we should send a bunch of cops with their patrol cars to Syria and Iraq to help ISIS/ISIL enforce the Caliphate's traffic laws.
