    Iirc, the problem is with vetting the recruits.

    I wonder how many of those sixty will soon be targeting us......

    With our own tactics, and equipment..........

    We keep doing this. Why? We can't help the Kurds, because all military assistance must go through Baghdad. Why?

    We insist upon arming the least desirable "allies", while leaving the Kurds out to dry.

    Why? We are intent on kissing asses in Ankara and Baghdad that have no love for us.

    Want to stop ISIS? Help the Kurds.

Oh, I know someone who could care less about our interests and doesn't mind working for the enemy - how about Jane Fonda??? She could be sitting in the back of a toyota 4x4 manning the gun for the poster pictures!

    Another option for a title could be 'Sleepless In Syria'!

    Sorry, but our quota of non-fighters was filled up long ago.

    Oh-bama, playing with your Cold War politics when it ended nearly three decades ago.

    This is beginning to resemble the American training and arming of the mujahadeen that turned into al Qaeda, or the training that we gave certain South American military forces.

    This can only come back to bite us, and obviously the locals aren't interested in fighting for themselves.
