I knew damn well that the inbred, pussy Iranian-backed militias and the rag tag Iraqi army would get torn a new asshole by ISIS when they entered Anbar province in the west of Iraq but didn't figure they would see this kind of wholesale losses. This is going to lead to some HUGE desertion by these Iraqi soldiers as they turn tail and head back to their comforts of the south.
The story comes from Al Arabiya.
ISIS attack kills 23 soldiers, Sunni fighters
At least 23 Iraqi soldiers and government-allied militiamen were killed Sunday in an attack by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants in the turbulent Anbar province west of Baghdad, Iraqi military and police officials said.
The officials said Sunday's attack, which killed 17 soldiers and six Sunni militia fighters, took place in the rural district of Jaramshah, north of Anbar's provincial capital, Ramadi.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
They said the ISIS fighters used suicide bombings and mortar shells and that chief of army operations in Anbar, Maj-Gen. Qassim al-Dulaimi, was lightly wounded.
News of Sunday's attack came two days after up to 50 soldiers were killed by the ISIS in two ambushes elsewhere in Anbar province, much of which is under ISIS control.
