Islamic State fighters seized control of Iraq's biggest dam, an oilfield and three more towns on Sunday after inflicting their first major defeat on Kurdish forces since sweeping across much of northern Iraq in June.

Capture of the electricity-generating Mosul Dam, after an offensive of barely 24 hours, could give the Sunni militants the ability to flood major Iraqi cities or withhold water from farms, raising the stakes in their bid to topple Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's Shia-led government.

"The terrorist gangs of the Islamic State have taken control of Mosul Dam after the withdrawal of Kurdish forces without a fight," said Iraqi state television.

Mossad Commandos are like the CIA in America, they can only operate of foreign lands or do you think Obama trained them in Jordan without Israel knowing anything about it? Now you know why they 'can't come to the rescue'.

Just curious.... Where do you read the words 'come to the rescue'?

" offering up a hand to their Palestinian cousins"
You do know that Hezbollah is fighting (and winning) against them right? (since you mentioned cousins)

So you need a translator for English too, eh?

Point was - and still is - if these Islamic whackjobs are so evil in their intent to waste Jews, why aren't they linking up and just doing it?

Of course, you can steer it in any direction makes you comfortable.

Define 'eh'.
They aren't so there never was 'a plan' other than to lie about that so they are 'not restricted' from doing something that would otherwise be considered to be 'sub-human'. Comfortable or not, that seems to be the path that is based on the fewest falsehoods. Going with the one with the most is not going to make me sleep better. Say all this led to seeing a deception for what it was. You won't be able to stop it ot open people's eyes if they are not ready to see it themselves. Giving yourself a stroke over it won't help either. The bigger the plan the more that can go wrong. Israel could order the snipers to kill all kids in Gaza, by the time one has killed about 12 he is about to go insane, instantly if he kills any more. As it is he will just slowly go insane instead. The best it can do is have you hear some report and you file it in a folder called 'worst lie ever'. Good news is a peace under a lie is still better than no peace at all, and that ain't no lie. Peace is the wrong term if it isn't a lasting one. Reload would be an more accurate term.

Maybe liar has a different meaning in your world. No matter what 'their claim, and I have yet to hear that one' the escape out of Syria (chased) and the go south, towards Iran. You did get part right, they are 'bad men' but like all the Islamic ones they have all been fed by the same kitchen and that one serves US food. It only means 'we' were lied to 'a lot' rather than 'a little' and what deception can change that format. Look at all the old westerns in novels, lots of different hills to ride over at first but the ending is the same in every one.

Clarity can only happen if you stick to one coherent conversation

The Kurds have requested the delivery of sophisticated weapons from Comrade Obama. So have the Shiites in Baghdad. He hasn't acted on their requests. Obama is too busy transforming America.

Why aren't there people taking to the streets in London calling for the Christians and Yazidis to be freed by the ISIS monsters? Where are the "Free Christians" and "Free Yazidis" flags?

I mean, you would have thought those lovely chaps protesting against Israel the other day in London would still want to show compassion towards their fellow human beings by marching against the brutal treatment of Christians and Yazidis at the the hands of Muslims, yet they seem to be strangely silent, just as they were also silent at the brutality Muslims were dishing out in Syria.

But then they would be forced to admit that islam is the religion on war and misery.

You the latest spin doctor or did you just forget who is working for who. ISIS is a Mossad creation, funded by the US (by equipment left in Jordan) These rebels have to appear to be even better than OBL in terms of being masterminds. Syria tapped a few of them in Iraq and the pics of the US hits seem strangely absent.

To protest ISIS would almost be anti-Semetic as they are a a puppet, unlike you they also collect wages. 30M Evangelicans in America aren't worried about a few Christians so why are you?

You mean this brand of Islam. The lard-liners and overlords of ages gone by. They exist today only because the US and Israel fund them. Hard to get funding for a fake war without a fake enemy.
