Yet another example of the UN's effectiveness. What a worthless assed organization.

"The situation of the people in Amerli is desperate and demands immediate action to prevent the possible massacre of its citizens," said Nickolay Mladenov, the U.N. secretary-general's special representative for Iraq.
He said the suffering was "unspeakable" and demanded that the Shiite majority Iraqi government "relieve the siege" on Amerli.
Dumbass, if the gov't could do anything half of the country wouldn't be overrun with the West returning to bail out (again) their sorry asses. You aren't worth the shit monkeys fling at zoo visitors. You're demanding immediate action? So the UN has an army to...wait, that's right. You're a charitible organization filled with do-gooders who make speeches and suck up tax dollars.

Assholes.

Maybe they learned their lesson in Katanga when they broke their own rules by invading and subjugating/slaughtering a people?

If it was up to me, allow IS to take over Syria, Iraq (minus Kurdistan).....allow Muslims to travel to the new Islamic State...let them create a homeland.

Then carpet bomb the whole place.
You're on the right track. I'd go with some sort of bio agent.

1. Task Force Black Is Chasing the ISIS Commanders to ‘Cut the Head Off the Snake’

The troops will go in undercover and will aim to “cut the head off the snake.” The stated targets for the group is ISIS’ command structure. One of the main targets will be Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State’s leader.

2. Defeating ISIS Is a Top Priority for the US & UK Governments

(Getty)

In the United Kingdom, Prime Minister David Cameron has told the SAS to make defeating ISIS a top priority, especially in the wake of the James Foley execution video.

3. In Just 2 Years in Iraq, Task Force Black Killed 3,500 Insurgents

(Getty)

This is not the first incarnation of Task Force Black, the group previously were assembled to defeat al-Qaeda in Iraq. A source told the Daily Mirror:

We need to go into Syria and Iraq and kill as many IS members as we can. You can’t negotiate with these people.

This is not a war of choice. They are cash rich and have a plentiful supply of arms. If we don’t go after them, they will soon come after us.

The Daily Telegraph reported in 2008 that between 2006-8, Task Force Black was responsible for the deaths of 3,500 insurgents in Iraq. General David Petraeus said at the time about Task Force Black, “They have helped immensely in Baghdad…they have done a phenomenal job.”

The group was the topic of the 2012 book, Task Force Black: The Explosive True Story by Mark Urban.

4. At Least 6 Agencies Are Involved in the Mission


On the ground the group will be headed by SAS, Delta Force and Seal Team 6. They will be fueled by the intelligence work of the CIA, MI5 and MI6. The CIA are thought to have already developed a “kill list” which features those involved in the execution of James Foley.

5. Intelligence Agents Are Trying to Recruit Sources of Information in the Region Where ISIS Operates

The British government has already begun transferring “non-lethal” equipment to Kurdish fighters battling ISIS in the region. The equipment includes night-vision goggles and bulletproof vests.

The long-term strategy for the intelligence services in the U.S. and Great Britain is to develop spies and sources of information in the areas where ISIS operates.

If I were King, the Mirror would have pertinent information about this 25 years from now per declassification. As it stands, I think their "source" for all this Task Force Black gushing is not from a significant inside loop. Looks good in print, though, makes us feel like bad shit's gonna happen to bad people :sneaky:

Jesus....these guy are barely on the ground...hell, maybe their ADVON's barely on the ground, and the media and "unamed sources" are blabbing about their existence? Why stop there? Publish an MTOE, live stream helmet cam footage, or have football style introductions.

"This Sergeant First Class is a real pipe-hitting slayer of men. 6'3", 220, with the second fastest Fran time in C Squadron, he hails from Bumblefuck, AL and earned a Ranger Tab at 19. He'll be exciting to watch. Now we'll send you down to Angela at the COP. Angela, is your pregnancy test still negative?"
"Yes it is, Bob. Just Barely. I spoke to Justin McKiller's family this week and they couldn't be prouder of his accomplishments. His wife Pam, seen here with their two children in front of the family home on 101 Mockingbird Way..."

In Iraq, our company was tasked to provide area security and to safeguard a protected group of Iranians who were (still are I think) on the State Department's terror list. It amazed me at the level of education many of them had, including PhD's from Stanford, Princeton, and Oxford.

What is troubling to me about this woman, is the fact that she was able to grab a hold of an Army officer’s M-4 rifle that was on the floor next to her while she was in US custody. I sincerely hope that officer is no longer in service. How she is still alive is another question I have too...
