Now IS comes out of Syria and into Iraq, and your still trying to figure out who's responsible.
    The US did not supply extremists. Strange how you forget Iran.

    The "Obama lied, people died" meme is cute, and it's really nice of you to attempt to make political hay off some very real atrocities happening to some very real people in the Middle East.
    Less than 10 miles from Sinjar.

    Actually, closer to 15, but be that as it may. Each operation is a surgical strike.

    lots of surrogate states - Qatar/SA/Iran (?more) are the bigger ones.

    we did a bit of supplies - they were usually glommed up by the Islamists ( so called weapons diversions) - but you are correct we aren't by any means the arms supplies to the proxies.

    The US was careful to supply limited weaponry to moderate elements. Iran supplied Hez. And the US is to blame for terrorists getting weapons? Nonsense.

    Iran is ignored for a reason: to blame the US for it is the Great Satan.

    US did not aid moderate elements.
    Rebels in Libya and Syria weren't moderate at all.

    The violent phase of the PKK has ended? Too funny, I guess that would be because they're fighting the somewhat more violent IS.

    agree. but those "moderate elements"(SNC) couldn't hold their weapons, much like Islamic State glommed up Iraqi weapons

    Of course they weren't. They are Islamic jihadists that the US is using to drown the ME in sectarian violence.

    Well that's the whole point. Besides, give me a strict definition of "moderate" rebels fighting to overthrow a government. Also, Iran IS part of the problem, but if I was Iranian, I'd bitch at the Iranian government. John McCain posed with the jihadists in Syria just as he posed with the nazis in Kiev.
