    When hundreds of ISIS members in pickup trucks attacked a fixed Iraqi position with thousands of well supplied Iraqi soldiers, the Iraqis basically sh*t themselves and ran instead of fighting. Once they ran, the supplies they had were taken by ISIS.

    And yet, we don't supply the Kurds....

    The US supplied them to the Iraqis. When ISIS started its activities the Iraqi soldiers ran away and left them behind.

      Really? But a lot of the stuff they got is brand new.

    They took them from the Iraqi army, who were given them by the US.
