No dude you are sorely mistaken and bent from your biased perspective, I was 11bravo I was in during 2007, we took Iraq in six weeks in 2003, while we were there no group held any ground ,instead they hid among the civilians and watched our troop movements to ambush with ieds.
We never had front lines we marched into the heart of Iraq never lost any ground, and basically these people waited until we left to truly surface, and the generals in the Iraqi army we disposed of, but decided to set free instead of kill or use, formed the ranks of Isis one of the largest strategic failure ever made.
Rooting out an insurgency is hard I'll agree, but this Syrian army can't beat a ragtag army, so to suggest it could take turkey, or the potential even exists for a war between the two,is laughable. Say what you want about the U.S, hate it for all I care, even go on to say our mission objectives failed. Regardless no one fights the U.S head up only a fool would do that.
