    Look at the photo. An American MRAP flying ISIS flag:

    Is this the Al Queda being CIA trained scenario all over again?

    Considering ISIS have claimed responsibility for attacks in the USA I think it is highly improbable that they would then train them.
    When America/UK etc. left Iraq, they also left the Iraqi army lots of their vehicles. Due to no post-invasion plan Iraq went to the dogs and now ISIS have gained control of many old American vehicles.

    Are you in agreement that America and western powers sponsored Al Qaeda Syrian Rebels?

    Iraqi army had US equipment, which they often abandoned when they were driven back.

    Easy answer.

    What?? Where did this come from?? America and other Western countries have equipped moderate rebel forces and some Kurds with equipment to help in the fight against ISIS, I haven't heard anything about them equipping Al Qaeda rebels. The closest thing I've read is Turkey and Saudi Arabia backing Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in Syria.

    Please read this:

    "In June 2012, the Central Intelligence Agency was reported to be involved in covert operations along the Turkish-Syrian border, where agents investigated rebel groups, recommending arms providers which groups to give aid to. Agents also helped opposition forces develop supply routes, and provided them with communications training.[84] CIA operatives distributed assault rifles, anti-tank rocket launchers and other ammunition to Syrian opposition. The State Department has reportedly allocated $15 million for civilian opposition groups in Syria.[10]"

    Incredibly easy to explain. The Americans equipped the Iraqi army with all sorts of American armoured vehicles. ISIS seized lots of them when the Iraqi army basically collapsed last summer. I thought this was common knowledge by now?

    MRAPs were supplied to the Iraqi army so I'm hazarding a guess it was captured by Isis.

    It's a bit like saying that Japan is supporting the Taliban because they drive around in Toyota's.

    Oh, I don't know. Maybe they got them when they routed large contingents of Iraqi police and army units early in their campaigns and captured all their equipment that the Americans had provided to the Iraqi government after the war?


    Or maybe we should all get tin foil hats like you.

    You know there once was something called the Iraqi army. It was badly trained poorly led and demoralised. But very well equipped with American weaponry. This army tried to fight ISIS, failed and abandoned tons of equipment on the battlefield. ISIS picked up this equipment as well as others it looted from bases in thr territory it took.

    I think this makes more sense than a bizarre conspiracy theory. America has spent over a billion dollars fighting ISIS, you think they'd be equipping them?

    Also al qaeda was never trained by the cia.

    Read what you're going to post fully before coming up with claims like that.

    "The pledge of allegiance by Syrian Jabhat al Nusra Front chief Abou Mohamad al-Joulani to al-Qaeda leader Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri was coupled with an announcement by the al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq, that it would work with al Nusra as well."
    Jabhat al Nusra are one rebel group (albeit a big one) that are seen as terrorists by the UN, USA, UK etc. Equipment is not being supplied to these extreme rebel groups.

    The article also says this:
    "This illustrates the need for American leadership in the Syrian conflict, particularly with regard to helping non-Qaeda-aligned rebels contain the growth of (al Nusra) and similar groups,"
    Suggesting America will equip moderate rebel forces to help fight ISIS/Al-Qaeda forces.

    Equipment is not being supplied t these groups but they have American guns when everyone knows it's not left behind arms. The protocol for discarded weapons is to disable them after a conflict.

    How does this ethos of not working with terrorist organisations work when western governments support organisations aligned to terrorist organisations. Surely that depends on whose deduction of terrorist we are talking about.

    Yes well done, you'll note the mujhadeen there. A group that splintered and became the taliban, the northern alliance and dozens of other groups. Might as well say saudi Arabia and al qaeda are the same thing because bin Laden was saudi.
