    The Islamic State, a hardline Sunni jihadist group that formerly had ties to al Qaeda, has conquered large swathes of Iraq and Syria. Previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group has announced their intention to reestablish the caliphate and declared their leader, the shadowy Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the caliph.

    Flush with cash and US weapons seized during recent advances in Iraq, the Islamic State’s expansion shows no sign of slowing down. In the first week of August alone, Islamic State fighters have taken over new areas in northern Iraq, encroaching on Kurdish territory and sending Christians and other minorities fleeing as reports of massacres emerged.

    They aren't people. They are barbaric animals and should be dealt with accordingly.

    Not a "race" either. TOS is wrong again as usual.

    Ya, is this mark L's advice? Kill everyone on the planet until we are the only ones left to inhabit it?

    Then you wonder why they hate us so equally.

    You and "them" are no different.

    From the article I linked above:

    ISIL is successful because they understand that Iraqis will run in the face of boldness and brutality. If it’s a small outpost they defeat it, hold the site and link up with resupply from Mosul. The spear head forces now fighting the Kurds are the best of their group. A massive defeat on ISIL could decimate their professional spearhead of veterans and break the image of invincibility. Just one drone and a Special Forces forward control team with a B-1 bomber package with could do that with ease.

    This was written by a former US military intelligence/counter-terrorism ops member. I think he knows a bit more than all of us put together.

    Actually, I like this idea. War has become far too "surgical" and "clean". If the United States really wanted to instill "shock and awe", it would systematically take out most ISIL's forward capability, wait exactly 1 hour, and then begin a three hour long carpet bombing campaign.

    Ya, really cheap and hollow to listen to morons talk about killing every muslim just so they can feel safe, yet act like they are the really good people.

    As for those stuck on a mountain top, If BUSH had actually accomplished anything in Iraq and they had real elections that were representative of all people instead of installing a puppet government that has accomplished nothing but steal BILLIONS of us dollars, this wouldnt have happened.

    Maliki was a puppet who has turned out to be as worthless as bush himself.

    It was only a matter of time before iraq turned into a bigger toilet than it already was. We did nothing for that country but provide instability for years to come. We armed everyone and now we see the results of that arming.

    Our country suffered because of that war, and it will continue to suffer financially as it the costs to continue "policing" that country rack up on the deficit.

    You can go ahead and put another trillion dollars onto the debt card getting involved in Iraq again.
