This is painful to watch. Evils being committed in the name of religion. An imaginary caliphate that insults the human civilization and seeking to deprive people of their rights. ISIS/ISIL/Daesh is not from God. This is satan walking with two feet.

Pain, horror, death - how very sad it makes me to see so much misery. I have worked in the past with Iraqi man, in Miami Fl, and I can tell you they are wonderful, friendly and happy people. I am so sorry to see that country destroyed, and to see so much pain and misery. You can blame religion, you can blame politics, you can blame ideology, I blame the evil men do!

May God, Allah, protect the innocent people of Iraq, and bring peace to their hearts.

I hope the Iraqi Army, not an airstrike, caught up with that sniper. There's a time for justice and a time for vengeance. This battle for the Iraqis is now vengeance.
