(IraqiNews.com) The United States confirmed that it had destroyed a number of tanks – mostly American made – that were seized by the organization of the so-called Islamic State in Iraq (ISIS), adding that ISIS retains significant capabilities with its estimated 2,500 military vehicles.

General Lloyd Austin, head of the Central Command of the United States did not mention the number of tanks and armored vehicles that were destroyed by air strikes, but Pentagon officials said that ISIS has seized over 2,500 armored vehicles, including tanks and Humvees, from captured bases of the Iraqi Army and in the city of Mosul.

  1. Alhamdulillah, Allah is great. Allah is almighty. On the other hand, America is the helper of Dajjal. They are the Soldier of Dajjal. They are the Eazuz ans Mazuz.

  2. O God, do not remain silent;
    do not turn a deaf ear,
    do not stand aloof, O God.
    2See how your enemies growl,
    how your foes rear their heads.
    3With cunning they conspire against your people;
    they plot against those you cherish.
    4“Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation,
    so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.”
    5With one mind they plot together;
    they form an alliance against you—
    6the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
    of Moab and the Hagrites,
    7Byblos, Ammon and Amalek,
    Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
    8Even Assyria has joined them
    to reinforce Lot’s descendants.b
    9Do to them as you did to Midian,
    as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,
    10who perished at Endor
    and became like dung on the ground.
    11Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
    all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,
    12who said, “Let us take possession
    of the pasturelands of God.”
    13Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
    like chaff before the wind.
    14As fire consumes the forest
    or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
    15so pursue them with your tempest
    and terrify them with your storm.
    16Cover their faces with shame, Lord,
    so that they will seek your name.
    17May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;
    may they perish in disgrace.
    18Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord—
    that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.
    PSALM 83

  3. Why dont we program a self destruct or disable swtich into ALL of our Military vehicles, weapons and equipment to disable them if they were to fall into enemy hands? This first came to mind when Iran seized one of our drones.

    • Because ISIS is full of western educated engineers that eventually would find out how to pull the self destruct swithc and then they could just ruin the whole American army without fighting just by doing a self-destruct on everything.

      If America can do a self-destruct after they have taken over, then someone else could do the same when they are in american hands.

  4. That because the Iraq military are a bunch of wussy. Young girls have more courage then they do. Kurds so far are the only ones worth giving weapons to. I say we give the Kurds what, they want. Directly. Iraq screwed themselves. And they sure are not helping the Kurds, more like ISIS.

  5. @Paul D
    You’re an a*****e. The US made a useless illegal war to recover the non-existent chemical warfare equipment of Iraq; they destroyed all combat capability of Iraqi forces, humiliated civilian coscience and weakened local institutions for ten years; they turned both Baath party and jihadist factions (previously fierce enemies to each other) to join together against western countries, and now you say the iraqi are a bunch of fussy?
    If the Central Idiot Agency stopped providing arms and money to every fu***ing bunch of fanaticals they see popping out in the middle-east just hoping they can help their ridiculous drawings, we in Europe would just stop dealing with the dangers you create from the other side of the ocean.
    On 9/11 you saw what these criminals can do. Now learn 2 things: 1) They have been making those kind of disasters (just not so large) for years in Europe, 2) The US provided money and help to all these terrorists groups, including Al-Quaeda, for tens of years

    About courage, just see what the US did in Somalia and Lebanon when directly attacked and not protected by strong air forces. They just ran away. Who’s a bunch of wussy?

    • Sorry for your ignorance but we did find WMD’s in Iraq. You might want to keep up with the rest of the world as far as news goes. Bush was right. We found several stashes of Chemical weapons. There are some now in ISIS control thanks to Obama’s pull out of troops. Damn, moron move. You might want to keep up on events if you’re going to talk about them. Stop watching MSNBC and look at some real news once in a while. May I suggest some Al-Jazeere or something. America does not have the only reporters in the world, just the least respected ones. America also did not invent war as you imply. Wars have been fought though out human history. Reason vary but it won’t stop because a bunch of liberals don’t like it.

      • Go back to watching FOX news. Once you throw out the liberal v. conservative card you lose all credibility.

  6. Why in the hell were modern western weapons given to Iraq military when it is common knowledge that Iraq soldiers surrender at the first shot?

  7. The Iraqi army should of stood it’s ground or at least have driven those vehicles to Bagdad or behind safe lines. That’s enough armor to equip 5 armored or mechanized divisions! Or hey! Here’s a novel idea! They should have taken this huge armored force and attacked the isis forces before they could establish a good foothold in Mosul or the surrounding areas! With a force this huge they could have easily wiped out the meager isis forces in that area!
    I think there must have been some very poor leadership in charge of that area! Whoever is in charge in Iraq now needs to think outside of the box and start using old blitzkrieg and mass encirclement tactics like the Germans did at Kiev and Smolensk in ww2! Think like Patton,attack,attack, pincer movements and encirclements! That’s what wins battles and wars!

  8. I don’t understand why we don’t install GPS in every single vehicle we provide the Iraqi government. If Isis captures a vehicle we know exactly where to point our missles and bombs. Makes common sense to me.
