The US airforce has adopted a new battlefield technology used by Israel to fight ISIS. Known as the 'knock operation' it is used to get women and children out of the threat area when an attack is about to be launched. It is used to minimise civilian casualties as ISIS has come known to use human shields. The method has been used by the US to attack an ISIS financier said to be a major distributor of funds to fighters. It involves deployment of a Hellfire on top of a building using an air burst so as not to destroy the roof to warn women and children about an attack.

I don't see why people say this technique is controversial, no one is injured in this type of attack as it just gets civilians to leave the area so they are not caught up as collateral damage in a strike on an enemy position/weapons stockpile. It is better than simply dropping leaflets over the area which aren't always effective - an actual explosion however will kick in peoples natural instincts to flee danger and get people out of the area so it's clear for a proper attack. I think the people who say this method is wrong just do not understand the process fully and how it saves lives, no endangers them.

I've never heard of this technique being used of before. Is it working with some degree of success? I understand about minimising collateral damage but using a missile as a warning to civilians, well wouldn't that also alert the enemies to an imminent attack too?

Eh, it works and it works fast as a scare tactic to civilians, but it's a lame way to evacuate an area. I guess the Israelis are lazy and the USAF is going to be too. It's kind of borderline on terrorist itself to scare the shinola out of people doing that whenever there are still other ways and enough time to evacuate them safely. If you can't reach them and that's the only way you can do it then ok, but if not, it's better to only use that as a last resort for the sake of the public.

The only reason people are paranoid about it because they see the title USAD adopts Israeli techniques. That is all they read, they dont take the time to read the article to see we are trying to save innocent lives. I know how this country thinks. They see Israeli and think we are picking up terrorist techniques. My grandma called to ask me if that is what we were doing. No we are trying to stop them and work with tactics different from ours a different look on things in my mind.

What innocent lives are you saving? the US is the reason behind the mess going in Iraq. Millions have laid to rest because of the US invasion of Iraq and here you are playing innocent.

You and the rest of the world need to realize that Americans are not all mindless zombies that whole heartedly follow our politicians decisions, that includes war. If there is a majority vote for war, there is a percentage of Americans that was not in favor of it.

It's like saying that all Muslims are evil and we are basing that on what ISIS is doing on TV. If I did that, then I would be called ignorant and close minded. Now apply that to what you are saying about all Americans and the actions of it's military. I never voted for any President that went to war in the middle east. I don't believe in their ideology. So why is everyone hating on me?

Or is it the way of the world now? Isis is muslim, so therefore all muslims are evil? American military went to war, let's blame the Americans that was never in favor of war.
