This is coolbert:
Pararescue to the rescue!
Here with an escalation [?] of American military activities in the current counter-insurgency, ISIL now and for some months now under allied warplane bombardment.
THOSE NATIONS PARTICIPATING IN THE ALLIED AERIAL OFFENSIVE AGAINST ISIL NOT HAVING THEIR OWN ORGANIC PARARESCUE UNITS!
THE UNFORTUNATE OUTCOME FOR THE CAPTURED JORDANIAN PILOT HIGH ON THE AGENDA!
"US moves pilot rescue aircraft closer to Syria battlefield"
"WASHINGTON — The gruesome killing [murder] of a Jordanian pilot who had crashed in Islamic State territory laid bare a problem of the U.S.-led coalition: There's no sure way to rescue an airman who's down behind enemy lines. Now, in response, the U.S. has moved search-and-rescue aircraft closer to the battlefield, defense officials said Thursday."
And from a discussion of the matter with a combat veteran his comments:
"This is typical on how 'ruling elites' 'back into' a real war."
"Afraid to take the decisive steps needed to resolve the situation . . . any response must be 'proportional' in order to validate the move and their own self identify as 'just' and 'humane', they engage in gradual escalation, as was done by . . . the US ruling elites in Vietnam. This leads to the perception, probably correct, that the US hasn't the heart nor the desire to enforce its' will on the enemy. It also leads to the tactical result that an enemy has time to see the American method and means of doing war, and form responses to the American way over time."
". . . the message the enemy receives is 'we can beat these Americans!'. "
Such incremental escalation [?] reactive rather than proactive and reminiscent of Vietnam.
