  1. Stupid comment from darktimes, kill these kufar daesh wherever you find them. you are the army of the country; the jaish of al Mahdi

  2. Yes Alijawaad Murtaza, ISIS are “cut throats” driven by a vehicle of madness. Best way to stop any vehicle from going anywhere is to take it’s wheels off. Most effective tool Iraq has in defeating! ISIS is to deny it fuel. Which in this case is black market petrol “stolen” from Iraq’s own oil fields. Hoping Baghdad would consider bombing any petrol production facilities currently under ISIS control. Deny any nation either profiting from the sales of black market petrol, or allowing it’s citizens to contribute donations to ISIS access to Iraq’s economy. If ISIS can’t buy weapon’s, they shall be unable to arm their gang of cut throats. Finally Assad forces, & Iraq’s Army must coordinate their attacks on ISIS.
