Disgusting Fox News Sexism and "War on Women" Via A UAE Air Force Major

Major Mariam al-Mansouri, 35, one of four UAE fighter pilots to take part in early bombing the operation against ISIL. Let's go with a picture as clear as as a 10 carat diamond. the Major led the bombing mission and she is (again) One of four women pilots int he UAE Air Force. I do not recall any reports of an American of any western power bombing mission led by a woman. Shouldn't such a progressive reality warrant far and honorable mention reporting?

A few words from ABC News about Major al-Mansouri.
Born in Abu Dhabi, Mansouri is one of eight children. She told Deraa Al Watan magazine recently that her family supported her career goals, but she had to overcome gender stereotypes along the way. It likely helped that she graduated from high school with a 93 percent grade average.

Why should a supreme warrior who happens to be a woman come under "War on Women" attacks from Fox News?

The leggy Guilfoyle introduced the piece with proper and due respect. 

The Guardian.UK
 “Hey, Isis, you were bombed by a woman,” she said. “Very exciting, a woman doing this … I hope that hurt extra bad because in some Arab countries women can’t even drive.”
It took less than two seconds form the sexist conservatives males on the panel to do what Fox News does best and most often. Both male conservative entertainers maligned the Major's accomplishments with guttural sexist jokes.

'This is really incredible,' Guilfoyle continued. 'Major Mariam Al Mansouri is who did this. Remarkable, very excited. I wish it was an American pilot. I'll take a woman doing this any day to them. 
'I hope that hurt extra bad from you because in some Arab countries, women can't even drive. Her nickname, per Jennifer Griffin? "Lady Liberty," baby.' 
Guilfoyle's co-panelist Greg Gutfield then remarked 'Problem is, after she bombed it she couldn't park it.' 
Upset, Guilfoyle was heard saying 'Now did you really have to ruin my -' Andrea Tantaro, the other female panelist on 'The Five,' said 'Oh...' and left her mouth agape.  
'I salute her,' Gutfield maintained. 
Eric Bolling then asked 'Would that be considered boobs on the ground, or no?' 
With her hand over her face, Guilfoyle said 'Oh my God. Why are they are ruining my thing?' 
'Did you just say what I thought you said?' Bob Beckel asked as the hosts spoke over one another. 
Unfunny? Andrea Tantaro (second from right) was left agape when Greg Gutfield (far right) said of Al Mansouri 'Problem is, after she bombed it she couldn't park it'

Kimberly Guilfoyle was seen putting her hand over her face after Bolling, left, made the joke about the soldier 
The Daily Mail writer keyboarded 'Unfunny." I strongly suspect many Fox News viewers would disagree. Apparently, Tantaros is being reported as "left aghast.' I suspect either the women were acting out a role play. Tantaros is noted for very revealing leg and thigh shots during broadcast and GuilIfoyle also entertains the Fox News audience. I recall my initial reaction when upon hearing about the Major's mission (led mission): pure glee and pride.
Why does my paradigm so differ from Fox News viewers?  The question is rhetorical no need to ponder an answer.
The problem is far more serious than the words "boobs on the ground." Roger Ailes promotes outright titillating sexism across   his network. 
Ray Rice abuse of his then girl friend mocked and a TPI exhibition of Ailes "Ass Candy":

Is there any doubt the conservative males would reach to entertaining their receptive audience while performing for their Boss?
Think for a bit, the sexist hosts satisfy the full scope and breadth of Fox News.
