Doncha love the names given to military endeavors? “Operation Inherent Resolve” is what we are calling our attempt to belatedly see to it that the asshats we put in charge of Iraq don’t behave just like Saddam Hussein and thereby plunge the nation into sectarian violence that creates real mean motherfuckers. But, too belatedly, of course, because ISIL already IS a thing.
So, second death in that endeavor:
The Department of Defense announced today the death of an Airman who was supporting Operation Inherent Resolve.
Capt. William H. Dubois, 30, of New Castle, Colorado, died Dec. 1 when his F-16 aircraft crashed near a coalition air base in the Middle East. He was assigned to the 77th Fighter Squadron, Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina.
