Original Title:ISIS Holds Military Parade In Mosul -- Threat Matrix Update: ISIS Holds Parade With Captured US Military Vehicles -- Zero Hedge
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham's Ninewa Division continues to crank out images of its conquest of Mosul and the surrounding province. Earlier today, the Ninewa Division released photographs of its forces seizing control of several bases, displaying captured military hardware, and executing Iraqi soldiers. Then, the Ninewa Division published a set of photographs of a military parade in the city of Mosul.
The photographs provide a glimpse of the ISIS' military strength in Mosul. Scores of ISIS technicals, as well as several captured US-supplied Humvees, armored cars, and even artillery pieces are shown. Hundreds of ISIS fighters are involved in the parade, which begins during the day and goes on through the night.

Watch the world slowly self destruct as Obama grips his hands with glee.
Anyone else get Issa and Isis mixed up when scrolling ?
Looks like an Obama parade.
As somebody pointed out, they don’t have the means to maintain them and the desert is rough on all vehicles.
I thought the redistribution of wealth included only Americans. Guess I got that wrong!
From a military point of view, it did not impress me as a lot of gear - great for a street gang, but a small unit at best for a military.
Same here. A lot of it, with the exception of the Humvee, didn’t even look American made.
Those Saudi financed ISIL fighters may be a bit overextended and dangerously strung out. There attack on Baghdad has been apparently stalled by Iraqi army resistance bolstered by enthusiastic Shi’ite militia. Their rear supply bases and convoys are exposed and harassed by Syrian air attacks (? piloted by Russians) and Hezbollah fighters. Their center flank is vulnerable to Kurds hoping to expand and buffer the territory they control, and Iranian “volunteers” who wish to defend their shrines. If the Iraqis had decent leadership and logistics, ISIL fighters might find themselves in a death vise if a counterattack were well organized.

The hordes of illegals coming over the border for your stuff are Americans. And, make no mistake, they will be on the receiving end of our redistributed wealth.
