"We ain't a sharp species. We kill each other over arguments about what happens when you die, then fail to see the ******* irony in that." - Justin Halpern
The Iraqi army had much more than small arms, but they ran off and left their weapons, tanks, etc to ISIS.
Why haven't we heard a single report (recently) that the Iraq army was engaging ISIS. Seems to me that they could get together at least one division, or even just a batalion or two of soldiers who are willing to fight.
Maybe it's like a pathetic football team (think worst pro-football team in the NFL), beating the crap out of an even more pathetic football team (worst high school team), and thus looking strong and powerful.
If we keep hitting grain silos and killing civilians just on their way to work, they are probably right.
Has anyone even given the thought to the possibility that since this group and others were born out of the uprising in Syria against Assad, that during the time when we began giving aid and comfort to these groups, they learned very quickly from our people secretly on the ground what our targeting priorities and methodology were?
