The news today is that the country of Iraq finally ended the so-called caliphate of ISIS, aka, Dai’sh. Good for you guys.
I would like to point out that 5000 American troops sprinkled here and there may have helped. I’m not taking anything away from Iraq though. When they ran like rabbits and let ISIS take half their country without a fight, they bought a ticket to the shit show and paid full price getting it back. Iraqi casualties were in the thousands, not counting the murdering that ISIS did in areas they controlled.
Did Iraq learn their lesson? We will have to wait and see. I suspect they learned the wrong lessons.
Wrong lesson #1. If you are going to oppress the Sunni, crush them hard so they can’t fight back.
Wrong lesson #2. Fuck the Kurds. They aren’t like us.
Wrong lesson #3. Iran is our friend and only has the best intentions for us. All those shi’it militias will surely disband now.
Correct lesson #1. America are a bunch of pussies. We can kick them out and they will beg us to accept their free stuff.
Correct lesson #2. Those AC130 gunships are the shit! We need to get a few of those. Anyone know who sells those?
I’m not saying it’s related. Just a coincidence that I went to go do that thing I do and 4 months later, 2 years ahead of the American plan, ISIS is done. Just a coincidence.
