(1) Now I'll show you why you pay me the big bucks.

The Islamic State built it's own shoulder-fired rocket launchers.
(2) These launchers were built in order to fire the massive number of munitions that the terrorists captured.
(3) They fired rounds from the Russian SPG-9 recoilless rifle.
(4) And they fired grenades from the RPG-7.
(5) There were four such launchers.
(6) Guess what NOBODY is talking about?
(7) The rubber end caps and the the ABS plastic handles are injection molded.
(8) Injection molding is VERY expensive.

(9) Even a SMALL mold can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

AND the parts on the Islamic State launchers are VERY high quality.
(10) The parts have no "flash."
(11) These parts were made by a professional arms manufacturer.
(12) They were provided by a GOVERNMENT.

It has to be the Iranian mullahs.
(13) IRAQI medical supplies were given to the Islamic State in Mosul.

(14) Iranian-controlled militias provided perimeter security.

They let the medical supplies through.
(15) SYRIA also provided medical supplies to the Islamic State in Mosul.
(16) The Shia militias said that Saudi Arabia had given the Islamic State ammunition.

But the box says "Yemen Arab Republic."

The Yemen Arab Republic ceased to exist in 1990.

Where did the ammunition come from?
(17) The Houthis in Yemen gave the ammunition to the Iranians who gave it to the Iraqi militias who planted it.

IRAN--not Saudi Arabia--was supplying the Islamic State.

And so was one other country.
(19) "Production dates spanning a range of years, suggest that ISIS forces have made repeated acquisitions of identical products from the same sources - almost exclusively from the Turkish domestic market."
(20) Our allies the Turks!

Turkey and Iran lust for empire.

They support terrorists in an endless quest for power.
(21) All you have to do is look at the weapons, and you can see that a STATE ACTOR gave the Islamic State high-quality injection-molded parts.

And not ONE "analyst" put two and two together...
(22) ADDENDUM: The injection-molded parts were CUSTOM MADE, not copied.

New molds had to be built.

VERY expensive...
