"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

I wonder how much support ISIS was given from our CIA, in the hopes that the group would make trouble for Assad and Iran?  It's certain there was and still is funding coming from the Saudis and several other Sunni states.  This whole business about the Humvees and US armaments that were "stolen" or "left behind" sounds like hogwash to me.  It seems likely to me that at least some of these weapons were sold and/or given to them so that they would be used in the fight to topple Assad. 

I think ISIS is a Frankenstein monster enabled by the USA, and that means the American people are at least partly to blame for these atrocities.

You said it RIGHT THERE.  I think that is exactly what has happened!  There is something they are covering up and I think that is what it is.

I'm reasonably experienced in what we call creative resupply, and most people would call looting the dead (they don't need it any more). It's too pat. They have full kit, not just the odds and ends you pick up. Someone is supplying them. Heck - in the picture posted a couple days ago, the camo still had it's factory folds.

Though it may not be the CIA. Russia has deep pockets and an interest in moving attention to the ME again.

I've wondered about Russia, they've been very quiet about these latest developments.

American kit is cheap. $250 will kit you out completely, including the vests. The only thing you'll be missing is the night vision gear. That runs about $15 in Syria. Or you can grab it from someone who no longer needs it.

They are said to have over a billion dollars and our equipment that they took over - not to mention the dam they seized.  It's incredible they gained all that that quickly without some high-powered help somewhere behind the scenes.  Look how long Al-Qaeda has been at it and ISIS/ISIL/IS is so very new on the scene!

Please, Alice......know that ISIS and Al-Qaeda are one and the same.

ISIS [ice-sis] sounds newer and cooler I suppose.  It's a total creation of the Left.

You have to hand it to Barack Obama...."run" can mean two different things.  Running away.  Or, running roughshod over the countryside massacring at will.

I see your point.  ISIS is the new flava' - an improved Al-Qaeda - running amok!

OPB. Organization, Planning, Belief.

There is a slight tendency to dismiss ISIL because they seem to be the new kid on the block. They ain't. They have been around for a while. Fully combat trained in Syria. Make no bones about it - this is a fully functioning and highly effective army, with a grasp of tactics that has to be seen to be believed. If they weren't such scumbags, I could almost admire them.
