Hardly a day goes by without a Republican complaining that ISIS is winning the war and it is all the fault of President Obama. John Mccain insists that if only Obama had maintained US troops in Iraq there would not be an ISIS. He insists that Obama left too soon. Actually, the date for US departure was set by PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, not by Obama. Actually, President Obama offered to retain 10,000 troops but the Iraq government insisted that any US soldier guilty of a crime against an Iraqi would be tried in an Iraq court.
Gee, I wonder if John McCain would have accepted the trial of American soldiers in an Iraq court? The mess in Iraq is the fault of a Shiite government which as refused to allow the Sunni minority a voice in government– or in serving in the armed forces of the nation. Donald wants to “carpet bomb.” Here are the facts about ISIS in Iraq:
They have lost 40% of all land seized.
Fallujah has just fallen to Iraq troops.
Bombing already has destroyed at least 50% of their oil facilities.
Over ten thousand ISIS troops have been killed and thousands more have been wounded.
Pay of ISIS troops has been cut in half.
Sometimet this year Mosul will fall and this will mark the end of ISIS in Iraq.
