    This gentleman, Anthony Cordesman, that gives his "Expert" opinion is a moron, which is a shame considering his rather imperssive resume. It is called Basic Training or boot camp. Even in the United States, you train with old tactics to help build up strength and discipline. When I went through Basic Training in the Army, we did bayonette training, even though it was 20+ years since they were last used in combat. This gentleman obviously never servered a day in the military because he would recongize that this is not a "video exercise" but as a way to build up and train the troops to be combat ready. Even if you signed up to the military to be a tanker, you dont just step into the tank the first week and start driving around in it. Instead of making somewhat dismissive comments about the video, it should be remarked that ISIS is getting stronger, more organization and better training.

    These people need to get a life. We should build up that area of the world into a democratic government and stop wasting trillions of dollars as before.

    These so called soldiers have nothing else to do. No jobs, no women, no love. For thousands of years these so called soldiers are the same, they have nothing else to do but fight, what else is there. Are they much more brutal, yes and they also must be wimps because they hide their faces and are dressed in black (death) outfits and the world with their ridiculous news coverage empowers them to seam an unstoppable
    force. And who are they fighting against? The same type of people without masks. If we go in there with soldiers? we get rid-off them and about a year later some other idiots will probably wearing red (blood)outfits will pop up. This is a middle east war let them start getting rid of them in conjunction with the rest of the UN
