The taking of Ramadi... what a joke!

ISIS unfortunately will capitalize on the incompetent Iraqi army. If 300 could achieve this what could 3,000 accomplish? It reminds me of the 300 Spartans. 

With a 33 to 1 advantage, and air support, it took the Iraqi army 6 days to retake the city. And their jumping up and down celebrating in the streets?

How is it we always align ourselves with incompetents? South Vietnam anyone?

If they go against 10,000 ISIS fighters the Iraqi's will lose since they 'only' have 250,000 troops! We've been pouring money/training into Iraq for years, and this is the best they could show for it? God forbid another 20 or so came out of the woodwork.

What a convoluted mess. If the Iraqi army were a football team they'd be donned in Cleveland Brown uniforms.


The first photos from Ramadi, which was seized from ISIS's barbaric clutches today, reveal how the Iraqi city has been laid to waste by seven months of intense fighting. 

After a fresh operation  to retake the city was launched six days ago, Ramadi was finally 'liberated' by 10,000 Iraqi troops who wrestled it from 300 ISIS fighters.

For the first time since ISIS seized the town in May, troops were free to drive through its dusty streets, scattered with burned out vehicles and flanked on either side by decimated buildings.

Ramadi is ghost town, and yet the victory is said to be a huge boost to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and his army, who were ridiculed after losing large parts of the country to ISIS last June.
