Skip to comments.Iraq: ISIS guerilla’s have U.S. Stinger’s, Spec Ops enroute

In only a scene from a bad movie, The Pentagon has now stated that the violent ISIS Sunni guerilla insurgency that is destroying Iraq-have captured American made, advanced Stinger Missiles from abandoned U.S. military bases.
President Obama hastily withdrew U.S. forces from Iraq in a move even former UK prime minister Tony Blair is now blasting.
The missiles, most likely captured in overrun abandoned military bases, have the capability to shoot down military aircraft, defeat chaff counter measures, and can easily take down a passenger jetliner.
Maj. Gen. Bob Scales (ret.) tells Fox News it may be as many as 100 Stingers. But it only takes ONE to shoot down a passenger jet.
The President has now notified Congress that he is sending back into Iraq 275 Special Forces. Armed drones are also on the way back to the collapsing country.
But all of this may be mute to put down the massive insurgency, as Fox News Jennifer Griffin reports: Once these guerillas are inside cities, we wont be able to find them (as they hide amongst the population).
The heavily armed guerillas have now been reported to have shot down an Iraqi military helicopter as well.
It is time to bomb and burn all our assets in Iraq
What a fiasco.
As the ISIS guy said....see you in New York
Good show, Obozo
Heard from California...”FORE”.
Thanks a lot,you Kenyan asswipe.
Leave our most capable systems where they can be easily taken by Jihadis,that’s either incompetence ot treason.
WE/0bama needed to retreat and destroy all our assets...
I hate bloggers.
“The missiles, most likely captured...”
from the Bhenghazi attack
“The missiles, most likely captured...
from the Bhenghazi attack”
Yup...There was no reason for us to have stinger missiles in Iraq. We owned the skies.
They had to come from somewhere else.
I’ll go with Benghazi.
We know which it was.
This crap is in part, cover for Bhenghazi. Not solely but in part.
When an airliner gets shot down in this country,what’s the Kenyan going to say?
It’s a dangerous world and things like this are going to happen?
No doubt Bozo sent them to be killed. Tbat’s his MO.
Let the ISIS guy give us a heads up before he gets to New York.I want to be there to properly “greet” him.
He, the Democrat Party, and the media will say,” Bush’s fault”.
Little freaking late
Agreed these have to be from Benghazi complements of Hildebeast and condoned by Juan McShame and Lindseed.
The good news is stingers have a short tube life. With any luck some of them will blow up in the tube and extinguish a few terrorists. One can hope.
