Some questions for the Pentagon

by Vaska

Pentagon’s most recent briefing and its figures on ISIL numbers in Iraq and Syria raise a lot of questions:
 1.  Who is enabling the continuing influx of ISIL recruits into Syria and Iraq?
2.  Why is the US-coalition unable to stop this?
3.  Why, if the US coalition has been as successful as it claims in killing ISIL fighters, did Iraq invite Russia to help it deal with the terrorists?
4.  Which parts of Syria does the US-coalition claim to have liberated from Daesh?
5.  Which parts of Iraq does it claim to have done the same for?
6.  What numbers of ISIL fighters does the US-coalition estimate the Russian military have managed to eliminate in Syria?
7.  Which parts of Syria have been liberated from ISIL due to the work of the Russian military?
Perhaps the MSM reporters who are given access to Pentagon briefings will remember to ask such questions in the future and inform us of the answers the US-led military coalition has to them.

Nice job Vaska. Here’s another one for the list.
Our relationship with Turkey has involved a “joint US-NATO secret training camp” at Incirlik, Turkey, used as far back as April 2011 to create an influx of fighters into Syria. Given the subsequent appearance in Syria of a rebel group now identified as ISIS, and recent revelations about Turkey’s apparent support of ISIS, can you assert that there is no relationship between that group and the US-NATO training?
[The US-NATO training was first reported in November 2011 — before ISIS, before US intervention — by Sibel Edmonds here: http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2011/11/21/bfp-exclusive-syria-secret-us-nato-training-support-camp-to-oust-current-syrian-president/ ]


Excellent questions indeed. Let me know if you get an answer.
