I've posted 4 links. The other poster has posted..... zero. Then accused me of propaganda, that throws a light on sensibilities, does it not?

Are you saying that isis have used this as an exercise to be trained in weapons use?


If 1/10 is on the job doing advisory work, there are locals being advised. There's nothing like having a controlled combat moment to salt your trainees.


Yes, of course, I would always choose to train my mad rebels on weapons use against highly trained military specialists as opposed to just shooting those thousands of prisoners I happen to have...in the fecking desert!!!


And you changed your original post, no fair!

First ground clash between ISIS and US Forces



He added, "We have made progress in al-Dolab area, in which ISIS has withdrawn from to the villages beyond, after the battles which involved a private American force

Private American Forces... Blackwater??

It hasn't been called Blackwater for awhile. Even Pepsi has their own private army. No joke.

The short version is that ISIS attacked a base where more than 100 Special Forces “advisers” are stationed and took a two hour beating from both the air and the ground while the good guys took no casualties.


What goes around comes around.

USA! USA! USA!

Boots on the ground? How about a boot up your a$$- it's the American way!!!

Yes I am happy to celebrate this violence. Die scum die.

I know our government has fought some unjust wars.

Every now and then America kicks the right butt.



Now correct me if I'm wrong. But those weren't even US special forces those were US Marines.

It throws light that poster just doesn't agree with what is being presented.

To make the leap to saying that the poster is on some side of that is dishonest to me.

Back to that "you are either with us or against us" mentality, which is wrong IMO.

People should question things, and should be free to do so with out getting branded as an enemy

So...let me get this straight.

We're on the ground again (well we knew that...advisors, special forces) in Iraq with the same Iraqi forces who tore off their uniforms, laid down their weapons and left their equipment for ISIS, and ran? So they only don't run if we're there?

And this is all a good thing that we're getting embroiled again somewhere we never should have been to start with?

Rah rah boom boom BS.
