A-10 Warthogs Are Putting Fear In The Ranks Of The Islamic State

The A-10 flies low, needs little maintenance, an scares the heck out of ISIS, according to a recent report. (USAF)

FOX News: Legendary A-10 'Warthog' sends ISIS fleeing even as it faces Pentagon cuts

WNU Editor: As a close support aircraft it has proven itself on numerous occasions .... even the enemy has made it a high priority target for its anti-aircraft missile teams .... Islamic State using MANPADS against A-10 Warthogs in Iraq: report (Washington Times). For the moment the A-10 will survive .... but a better way must be found to keep the plane flying and its budget for future operations more secured.

Well there's something IS and the Air Force have in common, both want the Warthogs grounded.

Answer: give the Army and Marines control of the A-10!
Make an offer to Air Farce A-10 crews to transfer with all seniority and rate and rank! Screw the Air Force. The A-10
is a critical ground pounders guardian angel and life preserver!
This is all part of Baraks plan to neuter the US Military and only he can save the savages from this very effective CAS weapon!
(A-10 can linger in area and provide the close air support necessary to save lives while the alternative is as capable of killing US troops as it can remove enemy positions. She can also provide intel and point out enemy movement!)
