    When they play all sides it is good for them. Though in all truth the yellow backed Iraq soldiers just dropped them and fled.

    The official Iraqi Army doesn’t seem to be fond of fighting in cities that are not their own. Maybe they’ll defend Baghdad?

    The Kurds, on the other hand, are fighting for what they have been hoping will be Kurdistan ever since Lawrence promised it to them.

    At first, it looked like IS was going to form a state from the predominantly Sunni parts of Syria and Iraq. They are promising a world-wide Caliphate, of course, and some have noted that their Internet marketing campaign has been brilliant, if not altogether realistic (but then, what Internet ads ARE altogether realistic?).

    The US wants IS to go back to Syria and topple the Baath regime, which is secular. We know secular regimes tend to sign on as puppets of the Soviets, so the US must destroy every Baath regime in Arabia. One down, one to go. But IS isn’t doing what they’ve been told, so the US is hoping the Kurds will show them the whey.

    Please note that is is not just U.S. manufacturers who are arming and profiting from these mini-wars. We have plenty of competition around the world.

    No, not what I meant at all.

    It was a French-made Exocet anti-ship missile that Saddam plugged into the side of the USS Stark in the 1980’s. The same missile was used by the Argentines to sink HMS Sheffield during the Falkland War. It was Krupp cannon that fired of German troops in China during the Boxer rebellion, and by Norwegian defenders, using Krupp guns to sink the cruiser Blucher during their invasion of 1940.

    Whenever there is an opportunity to make money, be it war or peace, businessmen of any nationality will take advantage.

    Thank you for cartooning this fact. American arms fighting American arms. Now, Sunnis are asking: Where is the US? Unfair that we should help only the Kurds, they say. That the American trained and equipped Iraqi army ran … that’s last month’s news.

    The Cycle of Life.

    Y’see, Timmy, when a government and a corporate love each other very much they come together in a way that is . . .
