That was a simple answer. They were able to use some of saddam weapons, because they were saddams officers.

Nice You've decided that RT & spurnik are the Russian government.
And its amazing, in an era where our communications and press are free and open, that you can decide that these other outlets are more truthful, though they are government controlled and not allowed to say anything the government would not like.

I also believe CNN is democratic controlled.. We call it the Clinton News Network for a reason.

And yes, RT is owned by the Russian government..

Still doesn't answer my question though!

Why did they take that story down? You were so proud of that one.

You found a link that no longer works. And are very proud of yourself.

To summarize GeorgeA:
Putin is not a bad guy,
The BBC, CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the LA Times, WFAA, FOX news, The Dallas morning news, and most other western news organizations are merely propaganda.
The story of the Syrians using gas in Douma is fake.
The story of the Soviets poisoning the skripols with novachuk is fake
The Russians have no chemical weapons.
The Syrians have no chemical weapons
The Soviets won World War II with a little help from the USA.
The Karyn Forest massacre was fake, or a German massacre.

Read the stories about the hockey playoffs in Russia. Putin's team was allowed to cheat so overtly, starting with getting all the draft picks and no salary cap, then when they were loosing literally no penalties were called against them and 21 pp in their favour. They still almost lost but the refs made sure they won.

I am not doing this story justice. It is fucking hilarious, would be rejected as a movie plot for being too unrealistic.

Check out @SlavaMalamud's Tweet: https://twitter.com/SlavaMalamud/sta...315918336?s=09
I heard in one game they had no penalties, but the opposing team had 12.

After the initial sieges, yes, they did claim a TON of equipment.

But no, that is incorrect. Not in a spiteful or negative way, but if you guys wanna see fascinating, research how they did it. I was fortunate to be apart of watching ISIL since the uptick in their attacks around Jan 2014. Even more so to be apart of detachment that started the airstrikes against them. While their strategies weren't anything crazy in most cases, it was interesting to see that medieval tactics coupled with limited firearms allowed them to send an army fleeing. We're talking a no shit fight of like 1k vs. ~50k, if my memory serves right. The Iraqi army was scared to their god and back. Love it. I remember one time of receiving a report (It was bullshit, but hilarious) of someone reporting an ISIL "Warmachine". Described it as up-armored SUV with 15 AK's, RPGs, you name it. Gave a good chuckle.

As for the Iraqi government, that's honestly a doozy. When you think of the climate in that area, it's extremely complicated, especially in Baghdad. You have the Americans, Syrians, Iranians, the Shia groups, and the Sunni groups. On top of that, Iraq's army is absolute trash (See above paragraph for proof). Some people make fun of American's patriotism, but that's why she's one of the best warfighters. (Not condoning war)

We can bring laptops and Skype in everyone. Lol
