    Re: ISIS Boasts Air Strikes are not Effective

    If air strikes were impairing ISIS in any way, do you think they would admit it? These people are liars and psychopaths. I don't about anything they have to say, and we shouldn't take them or their statements seriously.

    This is the epitome of non-news news story.

    Sadly, he is probably right. ISIS is an army of militiamen operating is relatively small groups whose main armoured vehicles are pick up trucks turned into Mad Max style "technicals". Most supplies- and they dont need alot, are requisitioned from the locals (voluntarily, forcibly or coerced) and transported in individual civilian trucks. Likewise, there are not alot of easily demarcated front lines in the fighting.

    As the similarily orgainized Serbs demonstrated in Kosovo, these types of forces mix in with civilians and can be very difficult to identify and stop. Then factor in that ISIS includes members who are veterans of both Iraq and Afghan conflicts who probably have a long list produced list of "dos and donts" produced by Darwinism when it comes to avoiding precision airstrikes.

    In short, my guess is that effective air strikes need US spotters on the ground.

    The US had complete control over a "stable" Iraq until Obama pulled the troops just three years ago and now Baghdad, and thus the entire country with all its oil reserves, is about to fall. This is non-news??? http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/18/wo...mble.html?_r=0

    We shouldn't have gone to Iraq to begin with. The cost of the war wasn't worth it.

    It seems then that you are backing down then from your foolish 'non news story' and are taking an even more ridiculous tack.

    The fact is that Iraq was 'stable', that people were voting in elections, there were just 55 deaths in Iraq the year of Obama's retreat and few of them were terror related. The rape rooms were demolished, the genocides stopped, no more mass graves, the burning of oil wells ceased, as well as the incredible damage to the ecology, and so on.

    Now, after all those gains, and having a "stable" Iraq, which was the "greatest achievement" of the Obama administration, you are backtracking completely to "the first place"?

    Do you genuinely not understand the daily headlines and what is happening now, today, in that part of the world and the carnage being waged?
