    U.S. hits ISIS with airstrikes in Syria

    U.S. hits ISIS with airstrikes in Syria - CBS News


    The U.S. military has launched airstrikes against ISIS in Syria. The U.S. military said five Arab nations had roles in the attacks, which focused on ISIS' heartland around the Syrian province of Raqqa.

    Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said in a statement Monday evening that fighters, bombers and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles were used.

    "The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) commander under authorization granted him by the Commander in Chief," Kirby said.

    The White House said President Barack Obama would speak about the airstrikes before flying to New York on Tuesday morning for the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

    The strikes hit targets in and around the city of Raqqa and the province with the same name, activists said. Raqqa is the militant group's self-declared capital; it began referring to itself as simply the "Islamic State" during the summer. Video purporting to show a series of strikes in Raqqa surfaced on YouTube, although its authenticity has not been independently verified.

    Yay for living in Turkey and sharing a border with Syria. I wonder how long until we are trapped on base, there are a lot of Syrians nearby. I took my Nanny home the other day and as soon as we exited the gate she pointed at a lady and kid and said they were Syrians.

    That's going to be a pretty big headache in the days to come, I'm sure.

    I'm still not sure how I feel about any of this. All I know is that I hate ISIS.

    Yeah... I don't know how I feel either, but I'm scared for our soldiers and I hope and pray that mine doesn't get moved there.
