US weapons going directly to Islamic State



We gave the Iraqi army $25 billion dollars worth of weapons over 10 years, and they collapsed like a wet taco when the Islamic State came knocking. The Islamic State got most of their weapons.

What did we learn from this? We give them even more weapons, and because of corruption many of these weapons are going directly into the hands of the Islamic State, AGAIN!

"One Iraqi general is known as “chicken guy” because of his reputation for selling his soldiers’ poultry provisions. Another is “arak guy,” for his habit of enjoying that anis-flavored liquor on the job. A third is named after Iraq’s 10,000-dinar bills, “General Deftar,” and is infamous for selling officer commissions.

The Iraqi military and police forces had been so thoroughly pillaged by their own corrupt leadership that they all but collapsed this spring in the face of the advancing militants of the Islamic State — despite roughly $25 billion worth of American training and equipment over the past 10 years and far more from the Iraqi treasury. Some of the weaponry recently supplied by the army has already ended up on the black market and in the hands of Islamic State fighters, according to Iraqi officers and lawmakers. "

“If each soldier is supposed to get 100 bullets, he will only get 50, and the officer will take and sell the rest,” Colonel Obeidi said. As he showed a reporter the Austrian-made Glock handgun he obtained from United States forces years ago, he added, “If the Iraqi Army had supplied this, the barrel would explode in two rounds.”

Let's face it, Iraq, like all arab "states", aren't really ready to be nation-states. They have no tradition of "civic society", the concept of free markets, independent judiciary, respect for individual rights, transparency in government, etc. At their heart they are tribal and religious groups. That's why IS in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan have been successful--because religion is one of the few kinds of glue that holds people together there.

We should stop supplying the corrupt Iraqi army. If 10 years of supply didn't work, an 11th won't do any better. We should supply the Kurds, and maybe Sunni tribesmen. Do you remember how we overthrew the Taliban in Afghanistan? We didn't fund the "Afghan army"--we gave guns to tribal groups and backed them with special forces and airstrikes. (NYTimes)

No more money to the Iraqi army/IS.

Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani says that the media focusing on the Ferguson, Missouri grand jury should spend more attention on why white police officers are in black neighborhoods to start with.

"I find it very disappointing that you're not discussing the fact that 93 percent of blacks in America are killed by other blacks," Giuliani said Sunday on "Meet the Press."

The case of white police officers killing blacks are the exception rather that the rule, he said.

"We are talking about the significant exception," Giuliani said. (newsmax)
