Watch Iraqi Mi-35 Hind Attack Choppers Take The Fight To The ISIS

Illustration for article titled Watch Iraqi Mi-35 Hind Attack Choppers Take The Fight To The ISIS

This video depicts Iraqi Mi-35M "Hind-E" advanced helicopter gunships, of which the Iraqi armed forces only have a handful in inventory, taking the fight to the ISIS in Northern Iraq. A much larger analysis on the events currently unfolding in Iraq will be posted soon. In the meantime, check out this amazing footage shot by another Iraqi aircraft, possibly another Hind-E or one of their militarized Cessna Caravans, of what Iraq is doing to stop the ISIS's push toward Baghdad.

Note, this footage may be unsettling to some.

Just to be a total heartless pampered American about this, Iraq is an artificial country created by the European powers. So is Saudi. So is Jordan and Lebanon and Syria and Oman......

Other than the flow of oil, what is the compelling region why there should not be a Kurdistan and a Sunni Arabia and a Shiite republic? The post war Powers inserted thug kings and 'presidents' to suppress this tribalism. Would new countries, based on centuries old tribes gives millions of these people one great big reason to stop grieving?

I'm not suggesting it would be easy, error free or bloodless, but do we believe in self determination of really just circle Churchill's and deGaulle's post war negotiation?
