ISIS Posting Syrian Children Outside of Car Bomb Factories

The Islamic State has begun posting Syrian children outside of car bomb factories as part of an attempt to stave off U.S.-led coalition airstrikes, according to the Pentagon.

Col. Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the anti-ISIS campaign, told the Washington Free Beacon on Friday the U.S. military has seen video of militants ordering young children to stand outside of several known factories around Raqqa that are used to manufacture vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.

Dillon said while this has prevented coalition forces from directly striking the factories, American-led troops are able to take out many of the bomb-ridden vehicles before they reach crowds of civilians or Syrian Democratic Forces.

"We know of a particular factory where anything that drives out of there we'll strike as soon as it's clear and free from places where we think they're going to have civilian casualties," he said over the phone from Baghdad.

And that's what happens when you don't fight a war to win and end it. Play by "rules" and it will be used by the enemy. Nothing new to that. We would still be fighting WWII if we stuck to the rules. Tried to fight by the rules in Vietnam, and we see how that went. Fought by the rules (twice) in Iraq, and we see how that is going, and going, and going. Decisive wins, and end of wars, require taking the gloves off and letting the enemy know that gloves are off and resistance by any means, even using children as protection, is futile. Not bombing those factories empower the enemy and cost the lives of all the people that those car bombs target. Sounds harsh, but there is always collateral damage in war. Without it, you will lose. Do you think the enemy is concerned with collateral damage? Collateral damage is the enemy's purpose with car bombs!
