Ralph Peters: The Measure of Tactical Success in Iraq and Syria is 'Acres and Acres of Dead Terrorists'

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters questioned the seriousness of last night’s airstrikes against terrorists in Syria.

“These strikes last night were designed to limit terrorist casualties. These were not serious strikes"


He questioned: Why did we go in at night?
“If you wanted to kill terrorists, you would have hit those headquarters and compounds and logistics sites at 10 or 11 in the morning, when they were crowded with leaders, staff officers, flunkeys, etc. Instead, we hit empty buildings at night. We knocked down antennas; we blew out windows. That is not the way to defeat terrorists who behead Americans.”
