Here is an example of how they twist the truth so that you don’t what’s really going on and who we are really attacking. In Syria, our “moderate” terrorists are called “rebels” and we support their “revolution” against a “tyrannical regime” while in Iraq we call a real revolutionary movement, the General Military Council of Iraq Revolutionaries (GMCIR), “terrorists” and “ISIS” and bomb them and their supportive civilian base into submission in support of a real dictator, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi (currently but it started when they opposed al-Maliki).
Check this out from Press TV:
“Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of the operations to liberate Mosul from Daesh terrorists on Sunday.
The city fell to the Takfiri Daesh terrorists (“ISIS”) in June 2014 shortly after they unleashed a campaign of terror and destruction in the northern and western parts of Iraq.” Press TV Oct. 17, 2016
Takfiri “ISIS” terrorists took Mosul in June of 2014, huh?
“Following the Iraqi armed opposition’s seizure of Mosul on June 10 (2014) and the subsequent capture of large areas of Ninewah, Salah al-Din and Ta’mim governorates from the Nuri al-Maliki government, several Iraqi organizations have proclaimed their role in the fighting. Emerging as one of the most powerful Iraqi armed opposition organizations in this rebel offensive is al-Majlis al-Askari al-Amm li-Thuwar al-Iraq (GMCIR – General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries) and its affiliated tribal militias, organized as al-Majlis al-Askari li-Thuwar al-Asha’ir al-Iraq (Military Council of Iraqi Tribal Revolutionaries). GMCIR members state that the organization has existed since the summer of 2013 and announced its existence in January 2014 in order to respond militarily against Iraqi security forces for firing on Sunni demonstrators in Anbar governorate. 
GMCIR members assert that their leadership is composed predominately of a network of Sunni former Iraq Army officers of tribal Arab origin that maintain a hierarchical chain-of-command inside Iraq in order to oversee the day-to-day operations of the organization. They estimate that there are 75,000 fighters affiliated with the GMCIR, mostly concentrated in Anbar, Salah al-Din and Ninewah governorates, with GMCIR-affiliated armed groups also located in Ta’mim, Baghdad, Diyala, Karbala, Dhi Qar and Maysan governorates.  GMCIR officers, including Iraqis exiled by sectarian conflict in their country, are also reported to be located throughout the Middle East region, including in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (al-Mustaqbal [Beirut], January 17; al-Jazeera [Doha], January 16). 
Ideologically, the GMCIR is staunchly anti-Maliki and anti-Iranian” The Jamestown Foundation, June 26th, 2014
Would you look at that. They’re Sunni, not Takfiri like the current status quo story says. And, they aren’t “ISIS” or “Daesh” either. Our troops and the rest of the coalition are not attacking “ISIS” in Mosul. They are attacking the city itself for supporting the armed uprising against Nuri al-Maliki and Haider al-Abadi. We were afraid we were going to lose all the “business opportunities” in Iraq that Hillary Clinton spoke of in 2011, so we got involved. All we needed was a horrible boogeyman in order to justify it, so our hearts and minds operators created “ISIS”
