  1. People are innocent. They are looking peace through corrupt rulers. Western country ruler are not sincere in peace. They have their interests.. Corrupt ruler are their puppet and they obey what western wants. How it is possible that a big Iraqi army with the help of so called coalition forces can not stop Daesh/ ISIl members from fleeing freely after butchering innocent people?

  2. I think the idea was to destroy ISIS and that could be possible only if they are attack and eliminated not given safe routes to travel. I also know that desert is a good place to intercept and destroy fleeing militants as it offers little cover. I think they are deliberately allowed to go to Syria but the Russians will take care of them there. The SAA and co are also competent enough. if not destroyed these militants will go to their country of origin and do the same there.
