Letter: Don’t tell terrorists what military lacks

Don’t tell terrorists what military lacks

Is it just me? Did anyone else see the Dec. 4 headline in USA Today and wonder what? It read: “Air Force needs more bombs to hit ISIL.”

How stupid can we get? This is the equivalent of a law enforcement agency, while engaged in a gun battle with the bad guys, announcing over a loud speaker that it is running out of ammo.

Telling ISIL we have a shortage of bombs is like giving it the “green light” to resupply its outposts, move terrorists to where they might be needed or attack new villages and gain more territory.

Somebody please enlighten me.
