    • Islamic State militants attempted to overrun Ein al-Asad base on Sunday
    • US support troops and advisers killed an unknown number of the militants
    • The troops were supported during the battle by F18 fighter jets
    • ISIS forced to retreat after suffering casualties during two hour firefight

    A number of militants have been killed in Islamic State's very first battle with U.S. ground troops after the extremists attempted to overrun an Iraqi military base.

    The militants attacked Ein al-Asad military base on Sunday where more than 100 U.S. military support troops are based.

    Despite launching the surprise attack just after midnight, ISIS's offensive was swiftly repelled when U.S. troops and F18 jets joined in the skirmish in support of the Iraqi Army.

    These are Iraqi citizens fighting off a foreign invader, right?

    I feel bad for the isis people

    they really did all this crazy shit and made some videos of it to get us all terrified

    they failed to realize we as a society have the attention span of a retarded labradoodle

    now they gotta start actually attacking our troops directly to make the headlines

    they're so 2014

    Don't scoff. That technology is based off of what the Rebel Alliance used on the ice planet Hoth. That panel you see absorbs the blasts of enemy fire and recycles the energy into a blast of its' own - most likely emanating from the donkey's mouth. See picture below -

    Global domination went out in the '40s. Seems to be making a resurgence now a days.

    Did you happen to hear Obama mention "The Nations of America" in his Cuba speech?

    Do we really need to send more than a couple of dozen guys over there to defeat ISIS?

    It must take at least that many to resupply them.
