Lets just take a few moments to ponder this...

The US pull out ... years of money spent.... oooo sorry millions of dollars made by a few....

and then in what amounts to a few days IRAQ is taken by ISIS... apparently well organised, well funded, and doing what the US took years not to finish off....

and now we are talking about new military action needed...

so who is funding ISIS , Syria ? Iran ? New Guns, New Tech, and certain timings of attacks and bombings that look , well odd....

are we to think... Syria is behind this ? Assad maybe

didnt get to barge into Syria..... maybe a new excuse ?

ISIS have caused mayhem in Syria as well. They are very much enemies of Syria and Iran.

Indeed, why did 30,000 Iraqi troops break and flee from less than a thousand ISIS fighters. Likely financed originally by the Saudis and other Gulf States. Now out of control and seriously into blow-back territory.

As well as supplies and arms, ISIS have seized at least $500 million dollars in gold and currency. That will keep them going for a while.

They don't have the numbers to hold cities and advance much further. Winkling them out of the cties will be difficult.

Having $500 million in loose change is one thing

purchasing lots of new tech and vehicles and getting them to their destination requires planning, and involvement of a big party,

The Tech they have is new ? not old Saudi stuff ?

Is it in the Iraqis interests to run away ?

maybe they want some one to step in ?
maybe they have been told to runaway so someone can step in
maybe the stepping in people want an excuse to step in

It's a good point. ISIS do look well funded. All of their clothes and equipment look new.
So, you're right...someone with a lot of dosh is funding them.

Mind you...the clothes they are wearing are pretty much a uniform, which makes them easy to spot.

And therefore, easier to fight! Twisted Evil

As for the Iraqi troops...fecking useless. What a bunch of drips. None of us in the outside world should lift a finger to help - we have done all we could and got ourselves into serious debt. The Iraqis have to sort this out themselves.

Hope not, after their revolution the French went a long way towards taking over the World. If it hadn't been for their aversion to underwear and the Moscow winter, we might all be parlaying Français and not just some Canadians. Laughing

The funding is from Saudi and Qatar and no doubt a little from Western Islamists.

The hardware will I assume have been acquired during the Syrian civil war.

The Iraqi army is clearly ineffective and indisciplined, not to mention terrified given the treatment of their comrades who fall into ISIS's hands.

No conspiracy here as far as I can see, but a nightmare situation for the Middle East.

Strange bedfellows: Iran, US to cooperate against Sunni jihadists in Iraq?

In light of recent military gains by a ‘too-extreme-for-Al-Qaeda’ jihadi group in Iraq, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said Tehran may consider cooperating with Washington to battle the extremist threat.

"We have said that all countries must unite in combating terrorism. But right now regarding Iraq we have not seen the Americans taking a decision yet," Rouhani said at a press conference on Saturday.

Asked if Tehran would work with its old adversary the United States in tackling advances by Sunni insurgents in Iraq, he replied, "We can think about if we see America starts confronting the terrorist groups in Iraq or elsewhere."

Rouhani denied previous reports that Iran had already sent troops into Iraq to aid government forces, saying any such move would be contingent on Baghdad’s approval.

"No specific request has been put forward, but we are prepared to help – within the frameworks of international regulations – if there is a request," he said.

Iran has already sent a Major General from the Revolutionary Guard to meet with leaders in the Iraqi capital. ...

The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

This is beyond warped considering where that philosophy brought us to last time with Iran/Iraq.

Maybe they could send them to Iraq.

Pentagon spent millions on boats that were never delivered to landlocked Afghanistan

One of the patrol boats purchased. (Courtesy of the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction)

Despite being billed a “top priority” for American efforts in Afghanistan, a new government watchdog report found that the United States spent more than $3 million obtaining eight patrol boats that were never used.

Authored by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, the report stated the purchases were made back in 2010, but about four years later the boats are still sitting unused in a Virginia warehouse.

What’s more, the report is raising questions about why the boats were needed in the first place. After all, Afghanistan is a landlocked country, with no coastline or prominent waters to speak of.

According to the Washington Post, military officials said the boats were originally intended desired as a way to move government supplies along the Amu Darya River near the border of Uzbekistan, as well as to “deter smuggling and illegal entry into Afghanistan.”

Additionally, the cost of each boat turned out to be about $375,000 – far more than the $50,000 they usually sell for in the US. As noted by Fox News, the SIGAR report also raised concerns over how the boats would be repaired, since the nearest port would have been 1,000 miles away in Pakistan. ...
