worst hot take ive seen all week. Isis is sunni and the iranians are shia, the iranians back shia proxies that kill isis fighters as well as sunni civilians justifying it by claiming they are "isis sympathisers". The only reason they are happy is becuase ISIS is sunni and so also hates Iran who is shia, the US is not in league with ISIS now. Just becuase you have two enemies that are also enemies does not mean hurting one is you supporting another.

this is them just desperate to get any news coverage. The group is down to its last few villages and their numbers have evaporated.

The few who remain who run it are desperate for any attention as all they can do is hide and make videos and social media posts as propaganda before the group fades into history.

Best to just ignore it.

ISIS praises US assassination of Qassem Soleimani, calls it ‘act of God’

Islamic State terrorists rejoiced at the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani at the hands of his American ‘allies,’ according to a weekly newspaper affiliated with the group that once controlled much of Syria and Iraq.

Soleimani was killed by a US drone strike on January 3, as he drove by the Baghdad international airport in Iraq. In reprisal, Iran launched a limited strike on US bases in Iraq with ballistic missiles on Tuesday, causing no casualties but demonstrating capability to hit US assets at will.

The weekly Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) newspaper Al-Naba portrayed Soleimani’s death as an act of god in support of its cause, and Muslims in general, according to BBC Monitoring.


An editorial in the jihadi paper was careful not to credit the US or even mention Soleimani by name. It couched the gloating in a historical analogy, referring to “Roman-Persian wars” that enabled early Muslims to overrun both Persia – today’s Iran – and parts of the Eastern Roman Empire, also known as Byzantium.

The paper also reported on the US and its allies suspending operations against IS as an opportunity for the group’s resurgence, according to BBC journalist Mina Al-Lami.

While IS has not been entirely destroyed, it has not controlled any territory for months. Soleimani’s Quds Force fighters were among those that turned the tide against the IS ‘caliphate,’ alongside the Syrian Army and the Russian expeditionary force in Syria – while the US-backed Iraqi army and Kurdish militias advanced from northern Syria and Iraq.

The only point about the unremarkable article is angery penguin being an imbecile again.

Pretty much par for the course as mnot says for ISIS to claim credit for anything that makes them look better. AQ did the same.

Just read it. I have the bad feeling that Trump is too deep into Bush's footprints and repeats his Iranian conflict. As if the history repeats.

To be honest, i am curious as to what the effect of the US's bombing campaign has been. Whilst undoubtedly unpleasant for ISIS no war has ever been won from the air and whether we like it or not it was, and is, the Syrians and Iranians (plus the various allies and proxies Tehran has mobilized) that have been doing the heavy fighting on the ground.

Ask the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
