Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham(ISIS) have captured as many as 52 U.S.-made M198 howitzers in their march across Iraq in June.

In addition to the stolen artillery weapons, ISIL is also in possession of 1,500 armored Humvees, McClatchy reported.

Stolen? Really? If their possession of all this is true, it is more likely given and armed as they appear to look more and more like a proxy army.
That’s exactly what i was thinking..stolen, yeah right.
I’m sure he means gave, not stolen, just how in the hell do you steel all the
Hahha , we left em there, they didnt steal nothin
now if you go and leave your toys in the sand box the next guy is going to come along and pick them up , especially if you didnt properly take them out of service , destroy or leave with no ammo , yeah no ammo huh? right they even have the ammo
well isnt that convenient ?
And just WHAT was the price tag on all that hardware? Not that it matters to them, they didn’t pay for it.
Isn’t it law that what one discards (consider personal garbage) becomes the property of anyone who wishes to rummage through it? On the other hand these radical Islamic savages who refuse the humanitarian offer of western democracy should find it in their hearts and minds to return the whips to their masters as if they weren’t any smarter than the average American.As if there is such a thing. Religion is fine. It’s war that’s as stupid as John McCain.
A country can’t just give away or have stolen all this military hardware and continue to exist. All this waste and abuse has to take it’s toll on any country. The US and it’s dollar are going to crash real soon…and crash hard.
