The more I hear about it?
The more I think the Islamic State is NOT gonna be dislodged from Iraq and Syria….
Let’s look a couple of things….
ISIS controls about 1/3 of Iraq….
They are Sunni based, a religious Muslim group which comprises more than 1/2 of the country…
The minority Shia muslims run the country and get along with Iran…
The people running the military in ISIS are the top Saddam military guys that got kicked out by the Bush people…
The ISIS military is small, about 5,000 to 10,000 it is reported…
But THEY FIGHT….The Iraqi Army doesn’t….
While the US and it’s allies are doing air strikes….
They have little political will to put ‘boots on the ground’……
All of this HAS to be making the White House aware that in the end?
Iraq WILL become THREE separate places….
While it was cobbled together by conquers….
The religious thing will probably divide the country by Sunni (ISIS), Shia (Present Iraq) and Kurdish factions….
Somebody tell me if I have this wrong….
Cause I don’t think so….
