Surviving An ISIS (ISIL/Islamic State) Massacre
**** video moved below the fold due to NYT's server being too slow, hanging the page***
I have mixed views on this. One being "why did the Iraqi army choose to flee instead of fight"?
When they're in the robber-murderer-mob mindset, they're out of control. They can't adjust to a defense of *nation* mindset and the personal discipline that needs to go along with participation in a standing Western-style military. They're still very tribally based, and it really shows in their armies. My take, anyway.

There are precedents, Bull Run/Manassas, The Battle of the greasy grass.
The battle of the Bulge.
You have EX-Generals promoting Transgender soldiers as good thing these days.
Female Grunts for Crixus sake!
On another tribes land, against an Army that fights for Allah to fight back is considered a sin, better to be slaughtered like sheep than resit God's chosen ones.
