ISIS grabs Iraqi dam, oilfield after defeating Kurds


                                            Makes me wonder why these guys are so successful. Of course Hezbollah just knocked off a bunch of them in Syria.


The Peshmerga is a home-grown outfit, operating without anybody’s help, and certainly not ours. Hezbollah is an extension of Iran; financed, trained and armed by the mullahs. Probably their ranks are filled out with Iranians in some functions. So, of course there’s a difference.

It’s the reason, too, why ISIS will not take over the Shiite parts of Iraq. Iran has a large population to draw on, lots of money for training and weapons, and ideological zeal.
