    What does ISIS do? Flee? Stay and be slaughtered? It isn't easy to recruit people to go to slaughter zone either.

    And it known the Iraqi military isn't going to be nice in interrogations to determine who is and isn't ISIS.

    As for those claiming we are telling ISIS our tactics? This hasn't been done at all. The only thing announced is that a massive attack to liberate the city of Mosul is coming. This is long overdue.
    Lets not forget that this gives time (and an excuse) for innocent people who do want out, to get out.

    Nothing fosters more potential terrorists than occupying innocent people and fostering resentment amongst them.

    if indeed it's a scheduled plan.. it is insane to release this information.. .which includes troop strength and composition.

    even folks in the Pentagon are freaking out over releasing it... but i guess they are "whining" too... so we'll let the military experts/Obama sycophants do their thing and defend releasing operational information.. the kind that can and has landed people in the brig.

    the Pentagon is pretty surprised at Centcom for releasing the information too... but don't let that get in your way.

    everybody is kinda freaked out.. except for Obama sychophants who have magically turned into military masterminds.

    If you think the Pentagon (skilled career military leaders who know that operational security and surprise are worth in the field) went and spilled the beans on that, rather than Obama (who doesn't know what the **** he's doing) directing them to spill the beans on that, well, how are your unicorns?
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    What the young ones at the Pentagon are thinking is so complicated, isn't it, my old friend?

    Google:

    " senior official with U.S. Central Command said Thursday a force of roughly 20,000 to 25,000 Iraqis, retrained by the U.S.-led coalition will ultimately lay siege to Mosul, likely in April or May."

    and then explain how you read "President Obama said" and that the Pentagon didn't know of the announcement out of that.

    ONLY if we can convince them to then go get in those bunkers for us. If only they'd do that this would be a piece of cake.

    Bunkers?

    You rightwing armchair generals kill me!
    Was calling ISIS a "JV" team a diversion too?
