Too bad. AMERICA was in a hurry to get out of there. You republicans should have never gotten us entangled to begin with. You people got American kids killed for absolutely nothing. Shame on you.

Afterwards, Shia’s Govt takes over and forget about minorities rights. ISIL is simply a small gang of fighters who won’t last much long, U.S is already looking for a replacement group because unfortunately to keep fight against terroism, US will keep inventing new groups. The major problem is Arab’s themselves, apparently they can’t get along so outsiders will continue to kick their behind and they still don’t learn

This whole Iraq mess wouldn’t be controlled by ISIS if Obama wouldn’t have been in such a hurry to get out of there. History will judge both Bush and Obama and I am sure Obama will be the worst president in American history with Bush also near the bottom. God help us.

We keep seeing TV video of F16s, F18s and even B1Bs making large explosions from large smart bombs.
Presumably big profits for the corporate suppliers of these expensive weapons.
But Daesh fighters seem to be dispersed and mobile, and able to tactically concentrate and beseige and ambush. So maybe even cannon fire from Korean War era planes would be more effective.
As a computer screen “general” I would like to see hundreds of cheap drones firing machine guns at any jihadi that moves, and infantry anti-tank missiles at hardened targets, piloted by game winners on Xboxes. Maybe only the Chinese could do this due to vested interests in the USA.

Why? Iran is the country in the Middle East fighting against ISIS. Chasing them down and killing them, just like we’re trying to do. The real problem is Saudi Arabia twiddling its thumbs and sending money to ISIS. Stop supporting Saudi Arabia, and much of this problem goes away. Oil kills.

Bush was an idiot for taking away the government there. Republicans were idiots for voting for him. Twice.
