Also true. Problem is, ISIS robbed several Iraqi banks to the tune of over 1/2 million $$$, AND commandeered tons of US military weapons and other equipment left for the Iraqis.<quoted text>
My thinking is that we've trained the Iraqi police and armed forces to the point where they should be able to handle this. Their own people are going to have to step up to the plate whether they want to or not. Farmers and shop owners are going to have to become warriors to the best of their abilities and fight. We've done enough to help them. All they have to do is stop fighting each other and take on the bad guys.
But the Iraqis panicked and fled from the approaching ISIS "army" to the northern outskirts of Baghdad. There was also some info about ISIS threatening to take over Baghdad International Airport, but were stopped. You might find this article interesting, even though it's dated 4-29-14.
IINM, ISIS is made up mostly of Sunni Muslims along with some Ba'athists. I don't know the makeup of the Iraq police and military, but I believe they are mostly Shi'a. If that's the case, there shouldn't be much trouble getting them to fight ISIS.
But if not, Sunnis and Ba'athists are not likely to stand up against their brethren.
