    Yes barmaley will supply. There, the entire aircraft carrier and escort ships are seen to the eyeballs loaded with weapons and ammunition for igil, annusra, jaish al islam, etc. they’ll type on helicopters fly to the coast to patrol, and in fact weapons to bearded.
    We know how they fight the igil. 3-AI year struggling underestimated.
    So the raccoon is taken by 500 Kurds and Marines. And everyone is already shouting about victory. Obama is a wimp and balabol.

      For them, this is not a real war, but a computer shooter with a transition to another level. It’s just that they didn’t take part in a normal war, such as in Korea or Vietnam (although the level of armament and supplies, I'm not talking about air support, it’s not even correct to compare). Therefore, they behave like cool cops against bad guys.

      However, as usual in the Anglo-Saxon manner.

    If we dropped how much ammunition on bandits in Syria how many Americans dropped by their lies, then the ISIS would end

    Well now they are bustling because it’s better they’ll have half of Syria than all of Syria will be in Assad’s hands. Jews are throwing grandmothers to Syria and Ukraine more than any benefit from this and this is normal
