    What did Ban ki Moon release about the Islamic State, again?
    So. That's not acknowledged by anybody but themselves.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Well they are holding that ground, are they not? Isnt Raqqa now their Capital?

    So far Iraq has made little ground in taking back what is theirs. Assad lost another Military base a couple weeks ago. He is on the verge of collapse.

    Yes, I understand all that. But Syria's sovereign borders are not disputed by the international community.

    Well I don't think they want to have to think about it yet.....you know how the International Community is bit slow on the take. Uhm, that's with knowledge. Not Bribes.

    The Awakening did work because of US security guarantees -they are gone now.
    The Syrian leadership killing is good in the abstract, but as long as ISIL hold Anbar, no real pressure can be put on Mosul.
    That as well as the Regimes (Assad) near-collapse in Syria and the continual turmoil also favors ISIL..

    As long as Iraq ( Baghdad) is fraught with sectarianism at the government, and army level, the Sunni Tribes ( non-combatants)
    have no-where to go in Iraq, and as much as they hate ISIL, at least ISIL are Sunni, and won't openly slaughter them ..

    Keep it all in context, it's (Syrian leadership killing) big but not a huge deal


    Yep, they took Ramadi.

    So? There are plenty of 9/11 conspiracy theorists. That does not mean that each individual theorist is not also off his or her rocker.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.
