Not to mention that vehicles like the Hilux (seen in the pics) are as common as the sand in those countries because they are bloody good off-road vehicles - I'd bet that every family in the remote regions ISIS dominates has one.

Sounds like a recruiting drive to me. Do you want an automatic rifle? Join ISIS today and you can have all the automatic weapons your little heart desires. See, it's not about taking guns out of the hands of the people, but about taking guns away from the people who aren't a member of ISIS. It just make sense.

On the plus side, this ban will lower the rate of gun deaths of ISIS members down to something like zero. Although they didn't ban IEDs or rocket launchers and that could be a problem!



The second part of your statement is the answer.

They are simply disarming the opposition and anyone who keeps a firearm will be killed. Once the population is quelled, they'll be safe to carry out whatever horrible, evil, tyrannical activities they desire. It's a classic example of nationwide domination and the reason we have the second amendment to the Bill of Rights.

didnt they steal 500 million dollars the other day making them the most well funded insurgency group on the planet?

www.washingtonpost.com... ah 425 million that should buy a lot of technical's


Of the many stunning revelations to emerge out of the wreckage of Mosul on Wednesday — 500,000 fleeing residents, thousands of freed prisoners, unconfirmed reports of “mass beheadings” — the one that may have the most lasting impact as Iraq descends into a possible civil war is that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria just got extremely rich. As insurgents rolled past the largest city in northern Iraq, an oil hub at the vital intersection of Syria, Iraq and Turkey, and into Tikrit, several gunmen stopped at Mosul’s central bank. An incredible amount of cash was reportedly on hand, and the group made off with 500 billion Iraqi dinars — $425 million.

Old books used that spelling of Muslims, as well as others. Since Arabic does not use the Roman alphabet, different authors and translators through the centuries have phoneticized arabic words differently. Moslem is one of the older conventions.

Yup - capturing all those cities (including Oil rich Mosul) has definitely inflated the coffers of ISIS, especially as they swept in so quickly, nothing could be saved from their advance.

We have armed,government-backed militias in Venezuela,wich are used mostly used to attack protests,and in everyday life they are regular criminals,they get brain-washed in Cuba and many are known to have ties with ETA,FARC,Tupamaros and the corrupt drug/medicine/food smuggling military. In Iran they have the Basij wich are the same thing, except they're somewhat more violent(it is the middle east after all). I've seen people carrying AK-47's freely on buses in Vietnam. American's luuuuuv having 2112412 guns.America is not the center of the world.

There's guns everywhere, some are legal,others are distributed to select groups to carry out inhuman tasks like these militias I mentioned. ISIS banned guns because it's the will of allah.

Don't try to make any sense out of mad people's actions, it's all lies,deception,hipocrisy and "Doublethink".

Good but of trivia mate! I had no idea!

I was watching those long propaganda videos ISIS created and I was expecting to see crappy cars but instead I saw some pretty good ones,Hilux included and even some expensive-looking sports car.Weird to see on a war-torn country like Iraq,but oil means business and loads of money so It's not that weird i guess.

To be honest, I only know the Hilux as a rugged off road vehicle from Top Gear and it's use in various expeditions!

Isn't Obama against guns? Maybe Isis is his funded fundamentalist group and he just got himself a country.

I still can not believe that this is the democracy our nation has given to Iraq, just destroying the country allowing a puppet government to take hole and then let the country be taken by fundamentalist, because we have a darn President that is a terrorist sympathizer

Definitely ALWAYS the West's fault.

Because..you know..before the West came to power the middle east never fought over anything.

Indeed.. I don't think ISIS has anything to do with the West. There is Western concepts of brutal and it's no picnic ..but then there is old school brutal and it's what even our CIA guys would likely spew lunch being in the same room with.

Regions in the world sure do have distinct dynamics unto and within themselves and the new decrees and M.O. of these guys (as well as watching who has just closed up shop and left all visible life ahead of them) sounds mighty Saudi of them. The House of Saud has been getting more and more into the dirty details of meddling in a proper way, with definite ambitions, I'm sure. Syria has gotten MUCH of it's rebel supply from them, and long before Kerry found inspiration to back a side in civil wars. (how much like what he once protested, come to think of it)

I'm guessing this group may outgrow and someday directly threaten even Saudi support, if that is a source, and if they hold their course like this.

I find it funny that most people view the US government as inept overall, but still think we can somehow control the actions of almost everyone in every country around the world.

Totally makes sense...

And not just the fault of the west but the fault of Bush. And to think all that time until the west and Bush they were just drinking tea, herding goats, growing daisies, and treating their women like arm candy . Go FIgure.

Well like Costner's character says in the Trial phase during the JFK movie. Theoretical Physics could show an elephant suspended from a cliff edge by a daisy (and make it work on a chalk board).

I'm not thinking physicists....but there is plenty of theory floating around to entertain the masses and keep everyone well focused on whatever event of the moment is desired.

Seems someone missed an opportunity big time.

The Highway of Death

"Between 1,400 and 2,000 vehicles were hit or abandoned
on the main Highway 80 north of Al Jahra (the "actual" Highway of Death).
Several hundred more littered the lesser known Highway 8
to the major southern Iraq military stronghold of Basra."



en.wikipedia.org...


Imagine what a couple of these could have done,,



but that may have wiped them out,, guess thats not the objective.

Well, ISIS wouldn't want guys like this to be able to protect their town (that the soldiers abandoned) now would they? That's a direct threat to the goal.


Just outside the militants' control, and desperately vulnerable to attack an attack by ISIS, sits Bartella. Williams says Christians have inhabited the town for almost 2,000 years. The locals still pray in Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus.

The Iraqi government soldiers who were supposed to be protecting this area ran away from the Islamic extremists. Now, Bartella is defended by about 600 lightly armed Christian militiamen.

Well, we'd have a few hundred fewer Jihadis to worry about raping and pillaging around the countryside.

Of course, these days, someone would file in American Federal Court for loss of property and don't forget the environmental impact of all that engine oil and gasoline just spewed across the ground.

Still.. Those black flags of doom they favor so much make me think Gaia might understand, just this once, eh?
