Saw an article posted about the above mentioned hashtag and was curious if we could validate the claim that Islamic militants captured Equipment given to Iraq and posted a snark photo about it. I have yet to see any credible sources and would like some assistance.

Twitter

Honestly, killers... sure, a*h*... sure, on point with this joke... sure.

It wouldn't surprise me much. I thought it was funny that the entire article kept saying humvee. Its HMMWV, we wern't using hummers over there...

Anyways, I suppose the "Iraqi government" could have been transporting a few on flatbeds. Though honestly, those things break down so often that the militants won't be able to run them very long without spare parts. They could cannibalize them I guess.

What a surreal world we live in. Terrorist organizations have twitter pages and they even upload humorous photos!! Again - this word is absolutely surreal haha cannot believe I am seeing this right now. These ISIS pricks sure think they are hot # huh?

No doubt they certainly did. They rolled right over the Iraqi military (big surprise, as this one is even less trained and seasoned than the last)....in most cases, the soldiers dropping their equipment and running for the hills.

That's what happens when you fire all the professional soldiers (who are now running with ISIS), and hire a bunch of sheep herders to take their places. This whole situation was inevitable, and the White House knew it....perhaps even COUNTED on it...to keep the military industrial complex rolling along.... who knows?
