    A bunch of Iraqi BTR-4s are being shot up in Ukraine right now, somehow I doubt deliveries will resume.

    New Ukrainian corvette? Their shipbuilding capability is ass, why would Iraq go to them?

    Btw these news are from a Deputat, so it is safe to say he is talking out of his ass.

    interesting. Andrei_bt says Iraq will resume receiving BTR4s from Ukraine? sounds very strange, didn't hear anything about that from Iraqis!

    sheytanelkebir, you have any information on BTR-94 status? a few years go they were used by nowadays are not seen.

    They are still around, they are used by the Interior Ministry's "National Police" not the army and painted blue and white. They are posted at some of the entrances to Baghdad for example.

    here are some revas of the national police with the same colour scheme as the BTR94s. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/94/Iraqi_National_Police_armored_vehicles.jpg

    I think i've read from iraqi posters about the iraqi leadership's fixation with buying new or mostly new stuff, if there was any reason and sense of emergency in the government surely by now they COULD have had a squadron or two of second hand F-16 (US, european, no matter) to please the US, a squadron or two of Su-25 (surely there must have been some around Belarus, Ukraine etc. if not Russia), Su-24Ms (again, Belarus sold some recently), maybe some attack helicopters (used Mi-24) not to mention high-end interceptors like ex-indian Su-30K. Also they COULD have jumped in and get a squadron or two of EMB-314 by now rather that wait for this AT-6 (IF they will order any).
    As it is, what they bought so far is terribly late compared to WHEN they are needed (Mi-35M only late 2013, Mi-28NE MAYBE his year, F-16 late this year, L-159 MAYBE this year, T-50IQ in 2016 etc etc.). If it's to make a sort of parallel with Syria, it is armour and air power that stopped the jihadists from overrunning all of Syria by now. Imo, in the current circumstances,  not terribly new or terribly high performance weaponry is MUCH better than no weaponry at all.

    Great video of Iraqi Mi-35 gunship destroying Terrorist convoy.
    Video is probably captured by a UAV. The Mi-35 is clearly seen firing guns and missiles and scoring multiple hits.

    nice bit of action from the Mi35M. the IA-407s giving the target info.

    how come we haven't seen footage directly from the gun camera of the Mi35s though?

    -Don't know what we'll receive. Iraq has already asked the US, France and "other countries" to provide air support for the Iraqi ground forces and militias.

    -There are thousands of Sunni-Arab "sleeper cells" waiting for the "="D-Day" in Baghdad and rise up. Meanwhile Sistani has called for mobilisation against the terrorists, so the Shia-Arabs have recruited 155,000 volunteers over the past 2 days to fight against Daesh "alliance" that includes all manner of sunni-arab groups.
    -The Kurds have a de-facto agreement with the Daesh, and have "split the cake" in Northern Iraq.. freeing up daesh to move southwards.
    -They have no shortage of money or people... You can consider the events in Iraq a general "sunni arab" uprising against Shia rule.

    Pretty much the country is "split up" for all intents and purposes now.

    Kurdistan has achieved the maximal territories it has been trying to capture. So, along with the Syrian Kurds will declare a "transnational" Kurdish state encompassing Iraqi and Syrian Kurdistan (as well as recently captured territories).
    -The ISIS/Daesh has its own large "transnational state" now with the sunni-Arab areas of Iraq along with Eastern Syria.
    -Central and Southern Iraq is now the de-facto remaining "Shia Arab" state with control of 85% of oil resources and all ports of the old "Iraq".

    Do western countries actually want to provide those airstrikes?

    Because ISIS is Assad's enemy, and west would like to topple him.
    Not an expert, but the rule "enemy of my enemy is my friend" could possibly be applied there, isn't it?

    Well, if USA refuses to help, I think the reasons for that may be more serious than just being butthurt over denied bases.

    well iraq is a mess no doubt, but lets face it ISIS i pretty much bankrolled by us and the gulf nations, killing them will be probably a good definition of blue on blue. beside they doing our bidding right now so why waste them.

    Sheytan, regarding a possible attack on Baghdad, i would have thought it is very heavily defended no, sleeper-cells or no sleeper cells? How do you see such an attack unfolding?

    Of course not, don't forget who is supporting, training  and arming the jihadists fighting against both Syria and Iraq: the US (with very certain israeli "advice"- and i'm not saying that because i'm "anti-semite", i loath them for their actions, not for their ethnicity) coordinating and orchestrating things from the shadows, and KSA and other GCC puppet states in the region doing the actual dirty work.

    Good News people! Both Shia and Sunni clerics are both calling to fightback the barbaric ISIS hordes:

    Who do you think made about 300 000 terrorist that where in Syria - out of nowhere - search terrorist youtube channels where they describe in detail how

    are being trained by US forces to kill

    Syria faced and won the biggest USA/Izrael/Turkey/Qatar/Saudi/Britain/France/Jordan terrorist plot the World has ever seen

    Well why don't you ask Obama's adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski weather U.S. trains, and supply's Islamic extremists...

    Here's Zbig calling for Afghan Mujahadeen to go on Jihad against the Soviets back in the 1980's:
