President Obama is weighing the option of drone strikes on Sunni militants in Iraq.

Such a campaign, most likely using drones, could last for a prolonged period, the official said. But it is not likely to begin for days or longer, and would hinge on the United States’ gathering adequate intelligence about the location of the militants, who are intermingled with the civilian population in Mosul, Tikrit and other cities north of Baghdad.

Even if the president were to order strikes, they would be far more limited in scope than the air campaign conducted during the Iraq war, this official said, because of the relatively small number of militants involved, the degree to which they are dispersed throughout militant-controlled parts of Iraq and fears that using bigger bombs would kill Sunni civilians.

    It is the next logical step. I’d like an order of multiple, constant and pervasive strikes to go please. Thank you.

    uhh, the F-117 pictured here is not a drone.

      That’s my thought. The libs must have been watching 24 To Love Another Day where they had CG drones that looked like a F117. Being on Fox the figured must be real.

    The bombings will continue until moral improves.
