ISIS butchers leave 'roads lined with decapitated police and soldiers'

Full Title:

ISIS butchers leave 'roads lined with decapitated police and soldiers': Battle for Baghdad looms as thousands answer Iraqi government's call to arms and jihadists bear down on capital

The full horror of the jihadists’ savage victories in Iraq emerged yesterday as witnesses told of streets lined with decapitated soldiers and policemen.

Blood-soaked bodies and blazing vehicles were left in the wake of the Al Qaeda-inspired ISIS fanatics as they pushed the frontline towards Baghdad.

They boasted about their triumphs in a propaganda video depicting appalling scenes including a businessman being dragged from his car and executed at the roadside with a pistol to the back of his head. The extent of the carnage came as:

Images from captured cities such as Mosul and Tikrit showed deserted streets, burnt out vehicles and discarded uniforms left by government troops fleeing the brutal fanatics;

ISIS leaders urged their bloodthirsty followers to continue their march and warned that battle would rage in Baghdad and in the holy city of Karbala;

Thousands of residents in the capital answered a call to arms to repel the invaders amid fears the government’s own troops were not up to the job;

Aid groups warned of a new refugee crisis after half a million terrified Iraqis left their homes to escape the jihadists.

That road down south of Dora is the divider of a major “sectarian fault line” as the COIN folks called it. North side is Shia, south side is AQI-heavy Sunni. I played in Dora for many months, and that place is the Wild West. Parts of it closely resemble Beirut in the ‘80s.

JAM (Jaysh Al Mahdi) will defend Sadr City and the surrounding area pretty well. There are a lot of them, they’re everywhere, and they HATE Sunnis.

I told my wife the other day some of the things ISIS have done. She said, “why would you tell me this?” People need to know. When they see Obama talk, when the GOP are trying to negotiate a immigration deal with him, when the next debt ceiling comes, they need to know Obama armed these guys. When Eric Cantor talks about “working withe the president to get things done” we need to know who the president is.

Didn’t Obama just exude confidence and competence in his speech?
I feel so much better after seeing him.

If there are any adults left in the Democrat Party, would you please go get Obama off the golf course and have him resign. He acts like he just doesn’t care and the stupid s**t should.

He should begin by sending his wife over there to set up the children’s program for diets in schools.

The President should go down there and shake some hands, split a ham sandwich with them and find peace with that beer summit style he is famous for.

“Why is the U.S. MSM not covering this?”

Everything that opponents of the Iraq drawdown said would happen, IS HAPPENING...
Those people were called “racists that just hate the idea of a black man as President!”, if you recall.

This makes Obama look bad, and as Sheryl Atkinson’s bosses told her, “They just don’t want the headaches” that would come from fully covering this, like being disinvited to Tina Brown’s next party, or having SEIU protestors threatening their kids at school.

He has no sense of what has been historically appropriate. He is just doing what he feels like and calling all reasons for doing them some kind of crisis.
I think the man could be truly insane on some level.

.... After the massive Islamic Death Machine has carved out in the bloody stones and sand of the brutal desert, and with mutilated bodies of the dead who even dared to defend their own country used to erect the new Northern Caliphate...

.... The mighty Obama will, with one arm outsretched and grasping his iconic golf putter ..... will brilliantly and swiftly swoop in and save the day by offering a couple band-aids he swiped from the oval office first-aid kit to help the refugees. After all ... he still is the leader of the ever shrinking and dying Free World.

From all indications, the U.S. intelligence and diplomatic agencies were caught flat footed by this offensive. There have been some discussions between the US and our 'regional partners' about the rising threat of ISIS, and certainly their activities in Syria were noted, but it really seems like we just dropped the ball. That's probably a combination of the insurgents getting smarter, and us being less engaged.

He’s paying government like he is playing a game with no consequences.
In part his 4% approval from zealots will keep him rich, the secret service for life will try and keep him living; so he suffers little consequences himself, meanwhile America has been suffering this weaklings guidance everywhere.

Just a guess.....

Were all the average citizens of Iraq previously disarmed by their own government?

For their own safety, of course.

It's a good thing average citizens have no way to fight back against these al Qaeda gangsters.

I mean, someone might get hurt.

Knowing what fate awaited them, perhaps these dummies should have stood and taken out this clearly numerically INFERIOR invader force.

Here’s MY plan from before 2009 and PROBABLY the one the few remaining sane American citizens – assuming there ARE ANY – should have implemented decades ago!
NOT ONE MORE DIME AND NOT ONE MORE DROP OF AMERICAN BLOOD!!

Very impressive. They are building a State.

I abhor their methods, but one cannot deny their effectiveness.

Their ideology is horrific, but it resonates with the power of the conqueror.

An existential enemy.
