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.

We kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong.
I have no problem with that if it s the isis.. But to be honest.. Who knows who kills who in syria right now? 7 countries are bombing there.. Who is enemy and who is friend.. There is only one thing for sure. A lot of weapons are sold for that. And the guys who sold them are sitting somewhere safe with a lot of money

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.

Please do not allow the bitter fighting within Iraq to keep everyone divided. There is only one evil to overcome at this time. Once Iraq is liberated, work together to find peace. Do not let the Iraqi soldiers and citizens die in vain.

ISIS lost half of Mosul in November... the second half is on the way. They are nothing.

All of this suffering and death was caused the lies of the Bush-Cheney Administration. The Anglo-American led West coveted the Iraqi oil, so they stole it at the cost of nearly 5, 000 Americans killed and an estimated 1.25 million Iraqi civilians killed.
No doubt, should Bush or Cheney face justuce, they'll call the lie the fault of bad intelligence. Sorry, stupid and greedy are not defenses against mass murder.

This is what happens when the US and UK invade a country without any good reason. Creating a power vacuum where Isis thrived.

Also it is in the interests of the west for the war to continue. War is a very profitable business for those making and selling arms.
