Some Arab countries are dropping out of the bombing campaign against IS. They may lead to ground forces.

US helped start the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovena by killing the peace agreement in 1992. They offered to recognize Bosnia as an independent state. I recall the IMF had tried to decree a breakup of the Yugoslav federation in exchange for a 'bailout'.

God bless the Kurds, and they have every right to rebel against Turkey, a two faced country, in my opinion, who hate the Kurds and oppress them. They should have their own country, God bless the heroic Peshmerga Kurds, the only Muslims on the planet that I would gladly enjoy having as neighbors and letting into western countries....the rest, lets send them all back to the their countries of origin, ...the Kurds are welcome anywhere in the western world!!! Just my opinion and view.

Add in Israel, India, and possibly even Russia and China. Indian non-Muslims (especially Hindus) and the Israelis/Jews have long had conflicts with Muslim terrorists. In addition, Russians hate Islam, and the Chinese are facing Islamism from Uighur terrorists. Those two countries just might join in, especially if they want more oil.

Turkey should never be allowed into the European Union. They support ISIS because they are killing the Kurds. The Kurds are brave enough to fight ISIS, not run away with their tails tucked between their legs. If anything, the US needs to offer more support to the Kurds by giving them proper supplies and weaponry.

So sad. Moaz told his wife he felt uneasy about flying that day. RIP.

She also told of how her husband had felt uneasy on the day of his final flight, saying that he hoped there would be a fog so he wouldn't have to fly. She said: 'He had the feeling something would go wrong. It was strange, he had never said that before.'

Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot Lieutenant Moath Youssef al-Kasasbeh was murdered by the Islamic State. However, the video they released of Lieutenant al-Kasasbeh’s murder—freakishly titled “Healing the Believers’ Chests”—proves beyond all doubt that he was not burned alive. The flames are computer-generated imagery (CGI).

Why would IS go through all of this instead of simply burning him alive?

His theory was that he needed to be controlled in order for the burning to play out according to the script. I believe he later showed the bars were made of aluminum and could be easily damaged. Every IS and Boko Haram video and photograph seems to be going up against skepticism as previous ones have been found to be faked. My favorite is the Mt. Simjar siege where ISIS was claimed to have surrounded 80,000 Yazidis and the photos showed several hundred locals lined single file down the mountain in an attempt to make them appear more numerous.
