Micah Zenko, "How Many Bombs Did the United States Drop in 2015?", Politics, Power, and Preventive Action (07 January 2016)

Senior Fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Micah Zenko comments upon the US Military's addiction to the "kill-em’-all with airstrikes" approach to fighting ISIS, and helpfully tots up some of the numbers for us.

Bombs Dropped: 23,144                                                                                      

ISIS Fighters: 30,000 - 25,000 = 30,000                                                                 

Civilian Casualties: 6
