    That would be ISIS, because they're using them as human shields.

    I could only imagine how the option of the Marines surrendering to ISIS would play out. If I were the COL in charge, I have to say I would disobey and accept the fact that my commission and life are forfeit.

    Maybe there isn't a lot of interest because the marines were never surrounded and were never under any real thread of danger. That's just my guess, I dunno.

    What I do know is that this story was prompted by a tweet made by someone claiming to be an Iraqi military person, but no further information was ever really provided. I don't really trust random tweets, anyone can say anything on the internet.

    Not at all. But when the oil is sent around the world it is easy for the home government to blame the importer for political, social, and economic shortcomings of the home country.

    Trolls. This poll became worthless almost as soon as it was made due to trolls.
