U.S. Strikes Islamic State in Syria

Monday, September 22, 2014 | Tag Cloud

BAGHDAD (Worthy News)-- The U.S. military expanded its war against the Islamic State late Monday by sending waves of warplanes and launching Tomahawk cruise missiles into Syria to attack an array of targets in an aggressive and risk-laden operation that marks a new phase in the conflict, the Washington Post reported.

Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said late Monday that U.S. commanders had deployed a mix of fighter jets and bombers and had also launched ship-based Tomahawk missiles against Islamic State targets in Syria. He said that the operations were ongoing and that more details would not be released until after the strikes were finished.

Kirby said in a statement that "partner nation forces" were also involved in the attacks, but did not identify the other countries. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/us-begins-airstrikes-against-islamic-state-in-syria/2014/09/22/8b677e26-42b3-11e4-b437-1a7368204804_story.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. ISIS will just hide in Iraq where our leaders fear to bomb or they'll lose face, and Al Quaeda is alive and well, o but they're called Khourason now...

  2. Has Syria given the USA permission of operate in it's airspace, and on the ground in it's country..no it has not...why should it? The USA created ISIS and is funding them with equipment and money, (good old US tax dollars)....Russian on the other hand was invited by Syria to help in it's fight against ISIS...
    The USA is arming and supporting the ISIS and the rebels in Syria to overthrow the democratically elected government of Assad in Syria..therefore the USA is operating contrary to international law in that country.
