There is the distinct possibility that the purpose was just to blast off the vegetation so the Iraqi 2nd could find the ISIS troops; a terrain denial op. Video shows only part of the op.

The F15s carried 5 or more 2000lb GBU-31/B Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) GPS-guided bombs; the F-35s 2 more GBU-31/B each

Yep. As far as the US goes. The Russians have some neat fuel-air ordinance - think cluster bombs.

only if the evidence for other arrests is off then YES destroy the island of child sacrifice.

I thought we quoted all these bad guys out. I guess not. At least we have the upper hand unlike what Obama left us in Iraq.

Looks like a WW2 air strike on a Jap held island in the Pacific. It worked then. Should work now with more powerful bombs and rockets.

Glad to see ISIS tasking advantage of their 401kg of bombs retirement plans courtesy of the US and Iraqi Air Forces. But for a more personal touch it’s highly recommended that all ISIS members meet their individual retirement counselors, The US Marines and Army. So far they’ve never had any complaints from their clients.
