VICE on HBO "Fighting ISIS" (This is a must see)

http://www.vice.com/read/watch-the-trailer-for-our-hbo-special-report-fighting-isis


The take away from this is two fold:

1. We cant win, it is a lose lose no matter what we do, including if we do nothing.

2. Of course the blame goes to W and Cheney for this absolute nightmare, but in 2010 the Obama administration decision to stick with Maliki was problematic, to say the least.

1. Clinton's Campaign Chairman, and Obama's personal advisor..

Owns the lobbying firm that represents Maliki... Good luck changing directions if Clinton is elected.

The same lobbying firm has raised hundreds of thousands in campaign dollars for Hillary.

2. Thank you for posting this.

I was just going to inquire if anyone else had watched. It was very, very informative and sobering and definitely placed the blame for the rise of DAESH squarely where it belongs. My heart breaks, especially for the mothers and children displaced by all of this. To me it seems like the Kurds are the only "good guy" fighters over there.

3. For those that dont know, Vice.com does fantastic reporting

They are my main source of information when it comes to crisis in foriegn countries. They talk to all sides and their reporters have as much courage as a soldier.

Isis, Kurds, Crimea, Ukraine, Syria, Israel, Africa, Mexico, etc

4. Vice is pretty good.

I've been following Vice News for awhile now. They seem to have been slacking on their stories though. They used to have really good stuff every week, but they've seemed to cut back a lot.
