Roll back a couple of decades and it would have been 'our gallant allies the Taliban, the brave and stout mujahideen who wishes only democracy to settle upon his troubled land...'

Most of the weapons used to fight ISIS were probably supplied by America too, so it works out equal in the end. Lots of the weapons supplied by Russia to Assad's Syrian army are in the hands of ISIS as well.

Parentheses doesn't care about facts you see. He and his leftie friends want to demonise the US so this is a great way to do it.

Heh. That's like those large crates of used banknotes that went missing all of an accidental on purpose when the US military needed open corridors to get their troops out of outlying areas without being ambushed every ten yards and every night.

Millions of dollars landed in crates in US military craft suddenly went bye-bye. Everyone scratching their heads and saying 'now those crates were there a few minutes ago. Ah sure.'

I am hopefully assuming this is a tongue in cheek answer

Why would it be? Where do you think the Iraqi army gets much of its weaponry?
Have you any idea how many air strikes the US military have carried out against ISIS recently?

So that makes USA arms going to ISIS ok.
That logic has served the innocent victims well has it?
The USA doesn't purposely supply arms to ISIS, why would they, the USA is fighting ISIS.
