    If the Republicans had their way we'd be in a quagmire with ISIS like we were in with Iraq. Once again Obama outsmarts those goat humping Muslims.

    The latest sign that ISIS is losing - Business Insider

    ISIS on the backfoot - Daesh loses 40% of territory in Iraq ...

    ISIS cuts its fighters' salaries by 50% - CNN Money

    ISIS 'isolated and in decline' after losing territory and vital ...

    Graphic: Propaganda Proves ISIS Losing Ground and Support

    Obama didn't shoot of his mouth and start up with the saber rattling. America is winning the hearts and minds of non ISIS Muslims. A Republican would be too stupid to do that.

    A Republican/Chicken Hawk would make things worse and be the best recruitment tool for ISIS.

    How do you know that? The old guy looks like Gen. Zahreddin of the SAA, Syrian Republican Guard. The dead guys could be from any of a dozen rebel groups, al Qaeda, al Nusra, ISIS etc.

    See how the far left will deny that their Messiah, Obama allowed ISIS to rise to power through his cut and run policy.

    If the US had better leadership than some far left drone, there would be no such thing as ISIS controlled territory.

    And before the far left drones start screaming BBBBUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSHHHHH:

    The group was founded in 1999 by Jordanian radical Abu Musab al-Zarqawi under the name Jamāʻat al-Tawḥīd wa-al-Jihād (lit. "The Organisation of Monotheism and Jihad").[30]

    Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    What is known as ISIS today started in 1999..

    There are better, or at least more precise histories of how ISIS came into power than Wikipedia. Whether leaving behind ten or twenty thousand troops in Iraq would have had much effect on the rise of ISIS, Islamic State in Syria can only be speculated about.
    The point of the OP is that the strategy for "degrading" ISIL has worked without requiring large numbers of American casualties from boots on the ground large-scale Brigade and Division sized combat operations. More importantly, it puts perspective and reality into the proposals and ideas of the Republican Presidential candidates who continue to paint a misleading picture of the war and call for deploying tens of thousands of American troops into the war zone or "carpet bombing" fantasies.

    Trump continues to tell his followers that ISIS is beating us and the war is being lost. Reality and knowing what he is talking about is not Trump's strong point. Bloviating bullshit is Trump's strong point. If he or one of those other jackasses had been in charge we would be looking at hundreds if not thousands of American casualties and stuck in a quagmire of a guerilla insurgency for years.

    ISIS might not even exist if the USA had not involved itself in the Syria Civil War by providing arms to the rebels. Assad is a very bad guy, but ISIS is far worse and our wizards of smart in Washington backed the worst of the worst causing death, destruction, and much suffering.

    When will those wizards learn that dumping the ME dictator results in far worse conditions? Apparently never.

    See how the far left deflects when face with the real history

    All they can do is run their religious narratives not connected to reality, the Obama administration officially called them ISIS/ISIL in 2011..

    So if naming something is their creation, then it happened under Obama!

    The far left does not care about anything other than their religious narratives.

    No they would have existed, the far left has existed in this country for a very long time and hijacked the DNC back in the late 70's. So it goes to show that the extremists will exist when the moderates do not curtail their expansion.
