    Iraq receives fighter jets from Russia

    Iraq receives fighter jets from Russia | Veooz 360
    Do you think this will help turn the tide on ISIS?
    The first ten Russian Sukhoi (Su-24) fighter jets arrived in Iraq on Saturday, the country's Defense Ministry said. At the same time, Maliki criticized the US for taking too long to deliver on its own contract after Iraq purchased F-16 jets from America. The radical Sunni Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL) has taken large parts of the country's north from the Shia government.

    In a word,no.

    The Shia government in Iraq will need a lot more than a little military hardware to turn the tide against the Sunni insurgency that it created with its poor treatment of Iraq citizens who are not Shia Muslims.

    I'm not sure it's the Iraqi's who fund and support ISIS.
    ISIS: The Saudis helped create a monster they can't control in Iraq.

    Gonna take more than a couple dozen 1960s-era fighters to make the difference.

    Yet this is Russian influence. Russia wants a cake from Iraq also. USA may not be the only one monopolizing the Iraqi resources.

    This is more of an influence issue I think.

    A few ****ty second hand bomb trucks from Belarus isn't going to turn the tide anymore than those shiny Apaches they own have.

    You might be correct, since ISIS could have more advanced weapons.

    It has nothing to do with weapons. But if we're on the point ISIS certainly does not have more advanced weapons than their opponents. Not in the slightest.

    At least fighter planes won't run away from the terrorists on the ground.
    Well, until the end.

    Sunni Muslims all over this planet are opposed to the Iraqi government's mis-treatment of its Sunni citizens.

    I doubt that you'll ever shut down all of their support for the insurgents in Iraq.
