I'm calling shenanigans with ISIS, this whole thing stinks to high heaven! So let me get this straight ISIS rolls into Iraq, right into Mosul and easily takes over the 2nd largest city(and 429 million dollars from the central bank), without a peep from the Iraqi Air Force? Yet when the Kurds are supposedly getting their asses kicked, the Iraqi Air Force offers assistance? Lastly where did they get all the American hardware? Shenanigans!
I am sure a couple of years from now there will be nothing left of ISIS and their leader al baghdadi,(Eliott shamir an Israeli by the way) will be fed to fish somewhere in the ocean,behind the closed doors,much like his brother Bin.

And ISIS is now pulling out of Arsal Deal reached ISIS to leave Arsal. It would seem they have suffered some sort of split with an allied islamic group who pulled out and left ISIS behind. After heavy fighting with the Lebanese Army they tried to retreat but, claim they were blocked in by Hezbollah backed Lebanese Artillery. A ceasefire has been agreed to so they can withdraw back across the border.

ISIS has no air support, so how are they able to advance like this? Shouldn't any nation under threat by them be strafing them with gun fire from the air as well as bombing their ranks from the air. Something doesn't make sense and I'm no military expert.
