Why the US is sending B-52 bombers to battle ISIS

April 9, 2016

As part of a larger effort to bolster its fight against ISIS (aka Islamic State), the United States is deploying the B-52 bombers – the first time the Pentagon is sending the aircraft to the Middle East since the 1991 Gulf War – officials said Saturday.

An unknown number of B-52s will be based at Al Udeid air base in Qatar, replacing the B-1 Lancer bombers that were withdrawn from the fight in Syria in February, to undergo maintenance and upgrading. The officials could not disclose the exact number of B-52s sent due to “operational security reasons.”

“The B-52 demonstrates our continued resolve to apply persistent pressure on Daesh and defend the region in any future contingency,” said Air Force Lieutenant General Charles Brown, commander of US Air Forces Central Command, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS, Al Jazeera reported.

  1. Isis is almost wiped out anyway…they really need them to “help finish them off?” Wake up

  2. You are right, ISIS is not wiped out, al-Nusra is, with Russian bombs. You are wrong, that US B-52s had anything to do with events so far. You really cannot even use them for no-fly zone enforcement. No, these flying Pintos were deployed for something else…

  3. This is the real reason why B-52’s have been deployed to the region; to make it easier for a wider response against if Russia decides to stand up against the bankers plans to finish off the Assad regime.

    Once Raqqa falls (or in reality the CIA orders ISIS to stage a fighting retreat) to the Kurds, we can expect the southern offensive to begin. It may be a splendid little war at first, but it will be a filled in body bag spitter shortly for Jordanians, Saudis, Israelis, US, and British forces. They will also want to go after after the AQ linked groups in the south that are not under the full control of the bankers (unlike ISIS). Turkey will try to get control of the AQ linked groups to the north and use them against both the Syrians, Russians and US led forces. What Assad regime elements are up in the north will continue to fight. At this point, the Russians will have no problems shooting Israeli, British, and US air assets coming in to finish off Assad regime elements.


    It will get quite hot as Trump opens the can of worms that Weiner has to offer by firing Comey. A distraction is needed.
