US Weapons For Iraq Being Used In Syria By IS To Take 10 Towns

The US government should help the groups battling against the Islamic State jihadists. US weapons captured from the Iraqi army are helping the jihadists to make rapid gains in Syria.

The fighting near Marea comes after IS fighters took around 10 villages in northern Aleppo on Wednesday and Thursday, the Britain-based Observatory said.

Captured US weapons are also being used in support of slavery: Despair for one Yazidi father as he is told that his daughter will be sold as a slave by Islamists who rampaged through Sinjar. She could end up in the Tel Afar slave market.

The Caliphate fighters are savages.

Slave market? It's like we're dealing with the 18th Century.

18th century? You're only off by 1,000 years. Those people are living in the 8th century. If anyone has ever thought the world and people have changed think again. The only thing that's changed about people is the technology. Not human nature.

The US should keep a constant force of predator drones armed with tank busting hellfire missiles circling overhead to take out every tank, armored vehicle and piece of artillery that comes anywhere near the kurds, assyrians or yazidi. After all, it was Obama;s stupidity that gave it to them. And we should supply them with all the arms, ammunition, RPG's and artillery they need. NOW is the time to nip this in the bud before those savages have a chance to metastacize.

The correct spelling is metastasize ( http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/metastasize ).

That being said, the metastasis is inevitable. They will spread to EU, and their population will grow.

I suggest that we offer to exchange George W. Bush for the Yezidi girl.

So the father "despairs"? I expect he will kill his daughter to preserve the family's honor. The Yazidis are an honor/killer culture. Do not let them settle in our country.
