US struggles to convince Iraqis it doesn't support IS (http://bigstory.ap.org/article/6a235d57456b41edae135cf0ce275233/us-struggles-convince-iraqis-it-doesnt-support)


But many Iraqis still aren't convinced the Americans are on their side.

Government-allied Shiite militiamen on the front-lines post videos of U.S. supplies purportedly seized from IS militants or found in areas liberated from the extremist group. Newspapers and TV networks repeat conspiracy theories that the U.S. created the jihadi group to sow chaos in the region in order to seize its oil.

I am not convinced either ISIS is an excuse to return to the middle east playing into people's fears.

America freaking created ISIS. And Al Qaeda for that matter.
