Oh Those Moderates

One reason (certainly not the only one) some of us never quite come around to the "we must bomb them to save them" view is that bombing generally ends up killing people we weren't intending to kill.

An airstrike on Tuesday by the coalition fighting ISIS south of Tabqah, Syria, killed 18 U.S.-supported fighters, U.S. Central Command announced.

The strike killed members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a local group of combatants that the U.S. and a coalition of 67 other nations and organizations support in the shared goal of defeating ISIS.
