Mmmm! Maybe if the US had stumped up the weapons paid for by Iraq, they wouldn't need the Iranian support (not that it's a bad thing) and ISIS would
not have made the gains they have so fast.
Found this report this morning that is a bit of an eye opener:
Iraq is trying to recover nearly $41 billion after the US has refused to deliver the F16 aircrafts the Iraqi government had paid for, Anadolu
news agency quoted an Iraqi official as saying.
A member of the Security and Defence Committee in the Iraqi parliament, Hakim Al-Zamli, said: "The US has not complied with the agreement concluded
with the Iraqi government to prepare and deliver the F16 aircrafts and Apache helicopters, as well as other weapons and materiel to combat terrorism,
despite receiving more than $41 billion from the Iraqi government."
He added, "The US is not serious and is deliberately delaying the arming of the Iraqi army to combat terrorism in the country."
I've speculated before that I think the US line is that they want Maliki to fail, so they can install their own guy, Chalabi, famous for supplying
them all the WMD BS to justify the invasion. Maybe that is the plan, wait for the Iraqi government to fail in the face of ISIS attacks then ride to
the rescue, put Chalabi in place then send in the US forces to fight ISIS and then supply the paid for arms.
This little snippet really backs up my thoughts:
The US justifies the delay citing fears that the weapons might fall into the hands of ISIS militants.
Perhaps the ISIS militants wouldn't be where they are now if the US had supplied the aircraft, helicopters and other arms it was contracted to supply,
and had been paid for!
