    I hate to say it but it might time for the world to cut off Raqqa. No power, no water, no food, and no medicine. We have just allowed a slow bleed of this city for 2 years. Might as well start the process of what we all know is coming. The quicker the world completely destroys these animals the quicker what humanity is left can rebuild. And after turning a blind eye to this slaughter the world owes Raqqa a SAFE and vigorous rebuilding effort.

    I’m asking my self where are the hackers who can destroy isis comunications, where is the people with enough guts to get them innocent kids women etc out of this hellhole and where are the men to get isis trash out of a city where the correct human beeing are in superior number then these godless killer trash of isis.As nobody has to lose nothing it’s time to get somehow out of there and let killers and barabarians kill themselves for their so called ieals, gods or what or ever. At the end both european fighters or isis trash are doing everything just for one result, getting more money and power. All explications of fighting for Allah or fighting for civilized world and rules etc. are just excuses for not explaining that millions of innocent people getting really killed just for greed and in the name of money, power, influence and egoistic interests.
