If they’ll shoot a mentally disabled gas station clerk for saying “I’m not the lord of petrol”, then nobody is safe

That’s what happens when you go from Operation Flytrap to Lord of the Flies.

Their leader was captured by Americans in 2005 and spent 4 years in jail. He was released in 2009.

Why surrender if they are just going to saw your head off anyway?!

Hell! Make them EARN it! Don't just give up only to be tortured and killed anyway...

I've never understood the concept of surrender when facing certain death... I mean, aren't you dead either way? Might as well fight. :-/

I think it's a little more complicated than that, as one astute Freeper pointed out.

The ISIL is a Sunni militia that began taking over Sunni-dominated cities in Iraq. The Iraqi police and military personnel in those areas capitulated as much out of a sense of loyalty as anything else. We can all be pretty sure that the Shi'ites in the Baghdad area won't be surrendering like that -- and it looks like they may have Iranian military support behind them, too.

I’ll give a lollipop to anyone that finds an article published prior to this week mentioning this ‘ISIS’ group. Yet they’re now poised to take over the middle east.

Sure.

Isis means the same as Ishtar, Easter, Astarte, and Semiramis, the pagan goddess of fertility.

It is the Illuminati’s replacement for Yehova.

You can view this sudden insertion in the same sense as GHW Bush’s Thousand Points of Light.

A lollipop?

You have a lot of confidence in your assertion I see.

If this is true, the cowardice and incompetence of the Iraqi military and individual soldier knows no bounds.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was MOST of these guys. Why anyone would surrender is beyond me.

It’s not “surrender OR die” with ISIL - it’s “surrender AND die.”

So, fight to the end.

I was wondering, too, how this ISIS seemed to come out of nowhere and manage to take over several major Iraqi cities.

This is happening on TheQueerInCharge’s watch.

All those folks who have been killed, maimed, wounded, or acquired problems. Just like those of us
who did our duty in Vietnam, the sitting president
just crapped on you.

I have asked the proponents if they could please show me where Satan was allowed to do acts of creation or did acts of creation.

I don't think I believe this...I believe they are switching sides and putting on a show for the mass media...

The Iraqi army force must have taken graduate-level courses in cowardice and incompetence from the U.S. House of Representatives.

I always thought the same thing. The enemy we are fighting today has no moral code or honor. Mind as well try and take a few of them out with you, at least that would be my policy. Not sure if you’ve seen the show TURN on AMC, but it makes you think about how the whole concept has changed since the Revolutionary War era.

They’ll die of thirst or starvation. The Jihadi’s can’t care for them even if they want to. (Which they don’t.)

They aren’t surrendering in the normal sense. They do not want to fight them. They will probably join them.

They are fellow Sunni. And they are devout. A muslim always feels unmanned by someone more muslim than he.
