WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the Republican senator from Illinois said he believes the U.S. and its coalition partners should be making many more airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.READ MORE: Employee At FOUND Hotel In River North Accused Of Stabbing Man, Going Into Rage, Leaving Guests In Terror
He said the level of bombings seen in Operation Desert Storm would do more damage than the relative handful of missions now underway in Syria and Iraq.
“Right now, the president has only authorized about an average of five sorties a day. To compare it to Destert Storm, that was about 2,000 sorties a day,” Kirk said.
