Doing the job the American president refuses to do.
French fighter jets bombed a series of ISIS sites in Raqqa, Syria, on Sunday in what officials described as a major bombardment.
The targets included a command center, a recruitment center, an ammunition storage base and a training camp for the terror group, said Mickael Soria, press adviser for France’s defense minister.
ISIS claims Raqqa as the capital of its so-called caliphate. The airstrikes come two days after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which France’s President described as “an act of war.”
Twelve aircraft, including 10 fighter jets, were involved in Sunday’s airstrikes, Soria said.
Show no mercy, please. And now, let the sniveling begin:
Raqqa is a City home to 200,000+ People right ? Hard to imagine that 20 bombs being dropped by France aren't causing civilian casualties

@georgegalloway are the innocent civilians who will die due to France bombing Raqqa tonight just acceptable collateral damage?

Innocents, sure. What this action needs is hashtags and cliches:

Yes, let’s just leave the killing to the terrorists.
People who're cheering on social networks right now: You do know that there are civilians living in Raqqa too, right?

I see the lefties are out in force regards the bombings in Raqqa. What shall do instead, invite them for a chat and a cuppa? Laughable.

Speaking of Obama:
