At least 15 fighters of the US-backed New Syrian Army have been killed, another one captured, in ISIS massive attack near the Syria-Jordan borders, according to the terror group’s social media account.

The attack, launched this early morning at Bir Mahrutha, enabled the jihadi militants to seize 3 SUVs, as well as heavy and medium military hardware.

The fiasco is the second for the US-trained force after the swift and humiliating defeat in Al-Bukamal on the Iraqi frontiers when the NSA lost nearly 40 fighters, in addition to considerable quantities of weapons and ammunition in a failed bid to capture an ISIS-held airbase.

The United States has been struggling to find a moderate force to battle ISIS terror group. Its first $500 million train and equip program was proved a catastrophic failure.

Now the US is leading a predominantly-Kurdish force to capture the ISIS-held city of Manbij.

Flay the Daeshbags

here’s a real solution: dump the rebels, support both Assad and Rojava forces. the rebels are less experienced than 12-year-olds playing Call of Duty.

LOL. They should have to recognize they have rally sucked but moreover that they have been totally deceived by their 65 years-time “allies” and their double-agendas, lies and hypocrisy… You know, when you lived in western Europe, not so long ago, you were even led to believe that it was the USans alone that had destroyed the nazis. I’m not saying they did nothing but if they hadn’t asked Stalin to wait for them in Berlin, the war would have ended, at least in Europe, at the end of 1944 with Red Army in Belgium, Netherlands, Austria and crossing the… Read more »

BULLSHIT the red army had a though time to reach berlin and secure at least eastgermany in time, because the nazi-forces surrendered to western troops, while fighting to death against the communistic archenemy. not so long ago in Europe they would have teached you that the stalinism was the best time of eastern europe, being liberated in 2.Wk by communists, plundering, raping and killing civilians in these “liberated” countries, slaughtering the nationalistic or democratic oppositions and STILL f*****g about these victims, today in Russia. It is just a fact that the red army could hold the eastern front in the… Read more »

Totally wrong. You should read about it instead of virtical lying. Lets take some facts. As in ww1 USA didnt want to fight in Europe. Why should they – and for communist in Russia. Stalin started by amputating red army in 1936 and therefor lost 6 mio. soldiers 1941. He deklarerd Japan war in – 1945. US sendes Sovjet 350.000 cars tanked with petrol, 88.000 jeeeps, 12000 airplanes, a very big trains system all inclusive. Metals for advanced steel(crome, vanadium, mangen, nikkel), 7200 tanks, a lot of ww1 old kanons, food, clothe and military information taken from the German Enigma.… Read more »
