  1. That’s just politics but military wise the US is getting concerned that it is taking Iraq so long to get rid of ISIL out of Iraq. Particularly when Iraq’s Military Forces are considerable superior in quantity of soldiers, and considerably superior in quantity of weapons and variety of weapons, as compared to ISIL.

  2. Why the American Goverment didn’t want to take this Isis issue serious like the way they toke the past one?
