  1. I can’t imagine a metric where ISIS is considered a success in Mosul.
    It’s a surprise the people there have not vomitted them out by now

  2. Ah, the warmth of their respect for other cultures is overwhelming. Rest assured that any country that falls under their control will be one in which all peoples, of all faiths and races, will have equal rights and respect. *

    note: Overwhelming sarcasm intended.

  3. They’re not tolerated. But in case you missed the memo, Arabs aren’t very good at getting rid of bad guys. How long has Saddam been in power in Iraq, before the Americans deposed him? People wish them gone, but the average joe can’t fight off an army. The states in the area seems either powerless or unwilling to remove this Saudi funded scourage.

  4. Welcome back to the Dark Ages. The Age of Enlightenment is over…and devils walk the earth in the guise of men…do these sick illiterates fear books so much? Destroying history and torturing innocents has NO place in ANY religion. ISIS you are truly pathetic little bullies…
