Kurd Hero Takes Out ISIS Tank & Crew

US airstrikes are ineffective; desperate Kurdish soldiers are the new heroes in the fight against Islamic terrorism:

American air strikes have done little to dislodge Isis fighters trying to take a major Kurdish city on the Turkish border, Kurdish fighters and commanders have said. They described the desperate battle to stop the Isis advance on Kobane which shelters a population of at least 200,000.

One described how a friend stopped an Isis assault by dropping a bomb through a tank hatch, killing himself as well. "He just couldn't take seeing the tanks bombing the village and killing so many people," said a young fighter of the People's Protection Units (YPG), "He ran forward, opened the top and held the bomb while it exploded the tank."

Blood still seeping through his bandage with metal pins securing his crushed lower leg, the injured fighter described how his battalion fought Isis militants who appeared to be high on drugs in the village of Tel Gazal in Kobane province on Tuesday: "We retreated into the village and hid to set an ambush when they attacked. They came with 10 cars with heavy machine guns strapped on top and four tanks."

The article goes on to describe how Obama's ineffective ISIS strategy doesn't include the YPG, who have been fighting ISIS on the ground for more than a year. Outnumbered and outgunned, these Kurds are ready to fight to very end.
