With insurgents linked to Al Qaeda battling for control of two major Iraqi cities, long-standing suspicion between the Obama administration and the government in Baghdad is hindering joint efforts against a common foe.
Sunni Muslim militants have gained control of territory in western Iraq's Anbar province in recent weeks, and intense fighting has broken out in two of Anbar's main cities, Fallouja and Ramadi, that were the sites of crucial battles during the Iraq war.

The sunnis and shites are teaming up against alqueda. That’s something that should have happened a long time ago.

All was foretold, but few believed when warned what an Obama administration would bring. More American blood will be needlessly spilled in order to go back and finish the job. Sunni and Shiite teaming up against Al Qaeda will do us no good. They are all brothers, who will ultimately form their own alliances, and continue the Islamic onslaught against Christendom. Look to their black flag, known as “The Punishment.” It does not signal victory as it flies above the city's rooftops. It is a battle standard, commanding followers to “take no prisoners.” The battle continues.

The whole world watched as Obama, Hillary and MeCain supported the the muslim brotherhood terrorist organization in Egypt!
The whole watched as Obama turned US foreign policy upside down, shunning old allies like Israel & Great Britain and supporting "Rebels" in Lybia, Egypt and Syria!
Friend & Fo alike, can't trust Obama!
