ISIS' Boasting That Airstrikes Will Have No Affect on Them Wrong Dead Wrong

The Beeb:

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 464 IS fighters, 57 other militants and 32 civilians have died.

Meanwhile, fierce fighting resumed in the town of Kobane, where militants and Kurdish forces battling for control.

Kurdish sources told BBC Arabic that IS had retaken a strategically important hilltop 4km west of the town.

Kurdish forces fighting IS in Kobane took Tal Shair nine days ago.

Reports also suggest IS fighters have been shelling Kurdish positions and attacking the town centre.

Syrian Kurdish sources told the BBC that IS fighters launched intensive attacks on Wednesday night from the southern and eastern parts of the town, in an apparent attempt to get access to the town centre.

The fighting resumed on Thursday morning after a brief period of calm, the sources added.

That a pretty good rate of kill the enemy with a very low rate of collateral damage. Although its pretty easy to pick off ISIS engaging Kobane in a siege, this dispels the myth that the US intentionally targets innocent Muslims. To the contrary we love to support innocent Muslims, but the terrorists, you know, needed killing.

1 Bombing the same hill top again should be an easy mission, and artillery ought to be easy to find and target as well. We will not lack for targets tonight if our actual mission really is to stop ISIS. (And yes, i expect the state department wants to keep the izlamic state alive and contained but not quite defeated so they can use it to knock down Assad and put pressure on Jordan and to prevent the Kurds from creating an autonomous homeland. Our military is effective when it's allowed to be.)

2 So ISis lost. 500 out of its estimated force of 20-30000
So I guess that leaves them with 19500-29500 fighters
Unless they are continuing to recruit
The King of Jordan said that foreign fighters are being paid 1000$ a month
Unsaid is where this cash is coming from

These blast points: far to accurate for sand people.
Only Imperial troopers are so accurate.
