A pretty dense thing to do by IS in my opinion. They just poked a very big dog with a sharp stick. I’m surprised that the US have been so soft with them thus far. However, I think the plan is to hand the initiative to the Kurds by supplying them with arms and further bolster the argument for an Independent Kurdistan, which would suit the US. However, US economy on a war footing would be a frightening prospect for IS. How long did it take to wipe out bad man Saddam? 3 weeks. So 10,000 mostly untrained rag tag and bobtail hotheads aren’t going to last very long if the US decide they need to step up a gear. I suspect out of the 10,000 most of those have been coerced by threats to their immediate family so their will to fight might not even be there.
