Very sad — and to think I was in Iraq where ISIS is now just 9 months ago and it was a thriving area and now? murder, genocide, ethnic cleansing

ISIS started in Syria.  We didn’t stop them.

I was in northern Iraq, Kurdistan in December (9 months ago!)  The area was thriving…doing so well.  People were telling me how much they appreciated USA and our soldiers.   And now?

ISIS expanded from Syria to now Iraq, precisely the area where I was in December.

How could this have happened in short order?  Why wasn’t ISIS stopped when it was just in Syria?
