MOSUL, Iraq (PNN) - May 5, 2017 - Sometimes there's a Fascist Police States of Amerika Navy pilot - we don't want to say a “hero” FPSA Navy pilot because what’s a hero? But sometimes there's a FPSA Navy pilot who chooses not to bomb brown people that he can't identify.
Such is the case of a certain Captain James McCall, who aborted a planned strike in Mosul "with only seconds to spare" because an unidentified human was spotted nearby the city block that he was about to vaporize.
Choosing not to bomb urban areas - even when you have clearance? That takes courage, especially when all the other FPSA pilots are blowing up Iraqis with impunity.
Recent investigations into a series of FPSA air strikes that killed scores or hundreds of civilians near Mosul, Iraq, have raised troubling questions about the way the fight against the Islamic State is being prosecuted.
But a less-known story about a planned strike aborted with only seconds to spare is proof for Captain McCall that his aviators are doing what they ought. McCall, the commanding officer of Carrier Air Wing 8 told Military.com the nerve-wracking call took place in mid-April.
Hundreds of civilians are now not dead. Yeah, that's a nerve-wracking call. Some might even call it gutsy.
