    Yep, and not to mention any target not protected by a well-established air defense system.....uhm, how many high-rise buildings are in Baghdad, anyway? (9/11 style ya know). Makes me wonder if a jet loaded with bombs will be as effective at taking down a high-rise like a jet loaded with fuel? A plane loaded with bombs worked wonders on naval ships in WWII so I bet they would make a mess of a building.

    Although I'm confident our pilots could blast them out of the sky, passenger jets are going to be easy prey.

    (Reuters) - Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State in Syria are training members of the group to fly in three captured fighter jets, a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time the militant group had taken to the air.

    The group, which has seized swathes of land in Syria and Iraq, has been flying the planes over the captured al-Jarrah military airport east of Aleppo, said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    Reuters was not immediately able to verify the report and U.S. Central Command said it was not aware of Islamic State flying jets in Syria.

    U.S-led forces are bombing Islamic State bases in Syria and Iraq. The group has regularly used weaponry captured from the Syrian and Iraqi armies and has overrun several military bases but, if the report is confirmed, this would be the first time it has been able to pilot warplanes........

    Seriously?!?! W.......T......F!

    I read somewhere that the Baghdad airport used to have a special feature, at the main entrance to the building: the words "DEATH TO AMERICA" were permanently laid into the concrete (English or Arabic?), so that everyone who entered the building would step on and over those words. Anybody know if that is true? This was supposedly ordered by Saddam Hussein.

    With the November elections on the horizon they'll be putting the best happy face on it that they can.

    All the while we have John Kerry standing in front of cameras with a photo of Baghdad behind him saying, "There are no isis fighters in Baghdad. "

  • Watch ISIS Take Baghdad Airport While Administration Claims Have Things Under Control

    I expect ISIS to take what we used to affectionately call BIAP (Baghdad Airport), which would represent a major blow as an escape route from Baghdad.

    The Administration keeps saying there's no way ISIS will take Baghdad. I expect them to first take BIAP, and then make a major attack on the Green Zone.

    If those two things happen, Baghdad will fall. And it will bring back memories of Saigon.
