Re: even when America wins it still loses.

If the Iraqi government forces are driving out ISIS that can only mean that the Shias are tightening their grip on the Sunni north. Big geostrategic gain for Iran. Maybe or maybe not.

You are lucky that your country has largely been homogenous. You have largely been white and Christ...

Re: even when America wins it still loses.

Thank's dagbay for your more thoughtful assessment of the situation. Sure cassowary! Whoever wins in Iraq and Syria all depends entirely on who is the US president. Local factors in the Middle East count for nothing. If the Iraqi government forces are driving out ISIS that can only mean that the Shi...
