I have heard IRAQI's retrofitted their M1 Abrams tanks with 5 speed reverse gearboxes.If they cant or won't fight for their
country maybe they deserve ISIS rule.


I doubt we would have given a very shaky Iraqi Military M1 Abrams, or at least I'd hope we wouldnt. They would get hand me downs from the 60's and 70's.

There's something hidden and something suspicious going on.



Neither am i mate.

If i were to hazard a guess...

US Grand tour of the ME turns it's attention towards Syria.

US reports Syria killing its civilians.

Syrian rebels hailed as heroes and supplied with US and UK arms, money and gear.

US want to invade Syria...to 'free the people'..

Russia and China forbid US lead Syrian invasion.

Syria accused of chemical weapons crimes against civilians.

Accusation fails.

Syria accused of chemical weapons crimes against civilians again.

Accusation fails again.

Syria accused of chemical weapons crimes against civilians yet again, 3rd time's a charm.

Accusation fails for third and last time.

Sensing a 4th attempt, Syria voluntarily destroys it's stocks of chemical based weapons.

ISIS created and supplied arms and equipment.

ISIS moves into Syria.

US and UK tell the plebs we're fighting ISIS.

US and UK go into and bomb the hell out of Syria (original intention) and claim we're actually bombing ISIS.

It's all an excuse to get their hands on Syria.

I agree, it would have been a perfect time to send a message. Why wouldn't we be targeting EVERY tank an d artillery piece we see? You can't tell me with command of the skies, we can't see them move heavy weaponry. Where's their logistics bases/train ? They seem to be basically the size of at least a Division or two to mount attacks. Should be easy pickings to destroy all the big hardware, specifically when it's deployed in an attack.

The end goal might be to split Syria in two.

ISIS may be involved in the plan.

A "West Syria" with a Sunni/Saudi government would allow this:

Qatar-Turkey pipeline


The Qatar-Turkey pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline running from the Iranian-Qatari South Pars / North Dome Gas-Condensate field field towards Turkey, where it could connect with the Nabucco pipeline to supply European customers as well as Turkey. One route to Turkey is via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria, and another is through Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq. Syria's rationale for rejecting the Qatar proposal was said to be "to protect the interests of [its] Russian ally, which is Europe's top supplier of natural gas."



Hmmm.

Im pretty sure he is not either as last time I checked he was not in the USAF or USN and not a trained combat pilot

This is why Obama doesn't want to give the police any more military equipment.
He's saving it for his buddies flying the black flag.

A couple of carpet bombs would have done the trick. I have to agree with xuenchen there is something suspicious going on.


Its called US public opinion.

If the US drops bombs its criticised if it doesn’t its criticised.

The government is paralysed with indecision and confusion.

The queation should not be why is the USA not dropping bombs but where the hell is the Saudi, Qatar, emirates and Israeli air force.

These "Celebrating troops" will be bombed pretty fast. Remember, they're celebrating in the middle of town. If they were hit with airstrikes and drones, there would be massive civilian casualties, for which you would, no doubt, blame Obama.

Repeated for truth

These problems have been brewing for years in the middle east, one group comes into power, gets knocked off and another takes it place. It stinks and ultimately there is no real solution for it. If the US goes in and gets rid of ISIS how long till the next group decides it has what it takes to try the same thing again?

In short it was a mistake for the US to go in and remove Sadam from power, that much we all can agree on, but now there is the aftermath and that is going to be harder still. The people in the area are a beat and down trodden people, with no real power base. They gain little and lose way too much. The scars of dictators and bad government long past still remain, and that is the problem.

They do not trust their government, do not trust their neighbor. The US is not the nation to depend on, as the Federal government has done nothing for those people, have not cleaned up the resulting mess, and thus they are loathed to ask for them to come back in. ISIS, has been fighting an all out war, willing to die for their cause, making them far more dangerous than any of the countries over there. They have a goal and are going to see it through no matter what the cost.

This problem with ISIS began with the fall of Sadam, and the civil war in Syria. The US made a bad choice in arming the Syrian rebels, and it has gone no where. And against the warning and advice of the Chinese and the Russians, the US proceeded in without much thought to the aftermath. Now it is going to require another fighting force to go in and clean up the mess.

Obama is trying to keep boots out of this mess, by not having people on the ground, and unfortunately that is not going to do much good, as this is a conflict where those doing these acts can simply hide in with the non combatants. And as sad as it is, the US needs to work with Russia, China, Iran and others in that region to stop this from happening and to help clean up the mess. That also will mean that it needs to stop supplying arms and ammo to various groups, only for such to be lost and used against people.

I'm starting to think you might be right about that. Airstrikes? Where and when? ISIS just had a very long parade out in the open as they overtook Ramadi and yet there was no airstrike. You'd think it would have been a perfect opportunity to hit them hard, what with them all lined up with their black flags and military equipment on an open road in the desert. But no ... they just walked in with no resistance.

Any bombing we are doing (IF we are doing it) is half ass'd.
It makes us look ridiculous.
Either hit them right or get the heck out and let the Saudis deal with it.




Here is a thought.

Maybe the Iraqi Government that the USA is working with did not want there city bombed to bits and plan on taking it back in one peace?

USA cant unilaterally just bomb random # in allied country’s. It could very well just be Iraq being stubborn and stupid.


Tell me this If ISIS took Chicago would you want your British allies turning it to rubble for you?

There's still tons of US equipment taken by ISIS being used right now.
Those may be Russian trucks but I doubt they make much difference in the overall scheme of things.
What I want to know is how can ISIS fighters just jump on this equipment like M1 Abrams tanks, artillery, etc and be able to use them? Who trained them? Some of this gear is pretty complicated especially when everything is in a foreign language to them.

All vehicles share the same basics, so why couldn't they drive a tank that they captured from the Iraqi army?

In fact, why couldn't they capture the instructions for the tank from the Iraqi Army? Or what if they had plants in the Iraqi army learning this stuff and passing it on.

Do you think these people are dumb?

Why does it have to be some sort of conspiracy? Armies have been stealing weapons from their enemies and using them against them for centuries.

The instructions for the ME262 were in German

I can't imagine how the US military managed to fly it....

As for the Russian trucks, it makes a world of difference if people simply go shooting their opinions off without actually checking facts first. There were 4 pages of generally incorrect assumptions about a whole load of things before I pointed that out.

I really think one of the assigned goals of isis is to wipe out any historical sites that may lead to re-writing the accepted version of history. Any thing that would show that the legends of the bible have roots in other histories and religions. There's a reason I refer to Islam Christianity and Judaism as the Abrahamic reich. All three work in collusion to hide humanities history and destroy anything that would remove their "god given" right to rule. They force a false history onto man and work towards the goal of squashing humanity under the boot of their man made god.

These groups are funded by the world elite who use the Abrahamic religions as basis for ruling the population. IF people stop believing in those mythologies the world powers will lose their base of power. Not something they can deal with. Destroying indigenous populations and any peoples or sites that can contradict that status quo has seemed to be a main goal of the 20th/21st centuries.

I've heard that the officer class within ISIS forces are those generals (etc.) who were disenfranchised after Saddam was 'removed'.

a reply to: Violater1 Thats why B.O pulled the US troops out of Iraq so the equipment could be left to and used by his comrades ISIS. Seven puny sorties a day by our fighter planes they must drop their bomb loads on vacant sand. Our southern border is wide open and he brings a million muslims into the US per year from the middle east.No Christians they can be killed with impunity just muslums relocated to conservative areas of the US. Like putting a few rotten apples in each barrel. Stop the psychopath before he kills us all.

Here is what I find funny.

One minute Obama is clueless, unless and incompetent .

Next he is some genius mastermind behind all the worlds woes.

WHAT IS IT PEOPLE!


Fact is he is a mediocre to below average president and likely wont get much in the history books in 100 years time beyond "USA first Black President, tried and failed at reforming US healthcare and did some drone strikes".
