When 800 insurgents approached Iraq's second-biggest city on Wednesday, they were able to strike such fear in residents that two divisions of 30,000 Iraqi soldiers fled in panic, dropping their uniforms and weapons. The militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, roamed the streets of Mosul freely, grabbing weapons from the main army base, freeing hundreds of prisoners from the city's jails and even stealing $480 million from banks. Since then, these fighters have overtaken several other cities in northwestern Iraq, including Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit.
This kind of sounds like a good slapstick comedy movie. Hot Shots Part Tree?
A band of rebels come running over the hill and 30,000 military men flee in terror, then they go romp naked in 480 million doing the best scrooge mcDuck impression they can muster.
