T he United States has condemned what it calls a "horrifying" massacre by militants in Iraq who say they have killed 1,700 Shi'ite military recruits in the city of Tikrit.

"The claim by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) that it has massacred 1,700 Iraqi Shi'ite air force recruits in Tikrit is horrifying and a true depiction of the bloodlust that these terrorists represent," U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement on June 15.

"While we cannot confirm these reports, one of the primary goals of ISIL is to set fear into the hearts of all Iraqis and drive sectarian division among its people," she added.

On the one hand, it makes me outraged and horrified at my own government and media...

on the other hand, I have to keep reminding myself that it's just Muslims killing Muslims, as usual, and it's far better to see them kill Muslims than to anyone else. Until they get sufficiently motivated by these monsters in their midst to get their own house in order, it is better that they be the victims rather than anyone else.

Yeah, they looked all broken up.

So we have some mass murder of our allies......so what?

These two hate the US military so much that they peddle false sexual assault stats to the media to make it appear our entire military is composed to rapists, they furlough DoD teachers of military families that are deployed, they furlough nurses at Walter Reed, they want to slash military housing pay, they want to destroy the military health care (TRICARE) system, and they give honor to traitors and deserters while an innocent Marine rots in a Mexican prison.

Glad to see our government is against ISIL for killing basically innocent men Iraq.

So when to we stop funneling money and weapons to the EXACT SAME ISIL who’s trying to overthrow Basher in Syria?

The only thing this totalitarian wannabe regime is afraid of is someone putting together all the pieces of the puzzle and finding out the regime LOVES Islam and hates everyone else and especially those African Christians who live their faith. American Christians? Meh, not so much. They are such milquetoasts that they do not matter.
