    I saw a video clip of ISIS traveling single file on a desert road, it would have been too easy.

    Obama should have taken advantage of the situation and delivered Maliki's requested airstrikes.

    Many are also running from the Iraqi government airstrikes which will inevitably follow, not wishing to become collateral damage...

    How many times does this have to happen before anyone makes the connection that arming extremist militants and even terrorist groups like alqueada is the INTENTION and not some continuously occurring accident?

    They're more concerned with what IS happening vice what isn't.

    Gruesome, but soldiers, not civilians or refugees.

    Yea I would hate to these helicopters didn't have some kind of option to remotely shut them down.

    But if not a Tomahawk cruise missle from one if those destroyers out in the Persian Gulf would do the trick also.
