We will not begin to win this war, until we realize THIS:
Al Jazeera Polls Shows 80% of Muslims Support ISIS
Has something to do with THIS:
Iraqi security forces don't have the stomach to fight ISIS
Iraqi security forces fled Ramadi without putting up a fight, despite holding as much as a 10-to-1 advantage over Islamic State militants, according to two senior U.S. defense officials. ...
In the days leading up to its fall, a combination of spectacular car bomb attacks, the ambush of an Iraq army patrol and marginal weather spooked the Iraqi forces.
The trigger may have been a minor sandstorm that prompted Iraqi commanders to believe that U.S. warplanes would not be able to bomb Islamic State targets.
A phone call to U.S. officials would have cleared up that misunderstanding, one of the officials said.
Iraqi commandos, soldiers and police officers panicked when they thought they wouldn't be protected by U.S. warplanes, one official said, and abandoned their posts. T
hey left behind U.S.-supplied vehicles and weapons, which are now in the hands of the militants.If you ask Muslims, they tell you they support ISIS. This is because in their superstitious minds, ISIS's long winning streak creates a sense of inevitability about their rule, and, to the Muslim mind, that means Allah is supporting ISIS.
The reason they believe Allah is supporting ISIS is simply because ISIS is winning.
If ISIS was losing, they would no longer believe ISIS is supported by Allah.
If you are superstitious about your "God", as Muslims are, then a sandstorm coming along just as the battle begins, looks an awful lot like Allah supporting ISIS yet again.
This sandstorm, then, is yet another reason to give up.
The first reason, however, is simply that ISIS is winning, which is proof ISIS is supported by Allah.
This is the way Muslims think.
This may seem stupid to those of us who were brought up in the West, but that does not mean it is not the way Muslims think.
