Reports that following seizure of Mosul, ISIS has surrounded Tikrit & in midst of capturing Sharqat. Iraq forces collapsing dangerously and fleeing.

Heading south?

So much for retreat from the “war of choice”.

Maliki’s other out is to call upon his buddies in Iran for help. That will, of course, expand Iranian territory.

Erdogan in Turkey needs stringing up for this as they were gunrunning and arming ISIS over the turkish border.

Good thing our boy king pulled all the troops out because the war was over according to him. Same is going to happen in Afghanistan, but at a faster rate. What an idiot that the sheeple elected. He’s going to get a lot more people killed before we finally put an adult back in the white house.

Yup. And now they have an airport to move that missing jet into.

People are so war-weary that this won’t even bother the masses. If someone had to come up with a plan to defeat America in the middle east, a better one could not have been hatched than what the “president” has done, with the help of the Iranian Valerie Jarrett.

Iraq’s Parliament Speaker Usama al-Nujaifi has called on the US to intervene in Iraq, adding that he has also discussed the crisis with the automous Kurdish Regional Government president Masoud Barzani, who said he was willing to offer troops to fight off the rebels.

After capturing Mosul’s airport and a number of helicopters, ISIL rebels proceded to free 1,440 prisoners from the Badush prison. They are now believed to be marching towards the city of Salahuddin.

What’s happening thousands of miles away in Iraq should shake every capital across the world. Passivity is not an option anymore. We should have finished the job ruthlessly when we had the chance.

Nonsense; our government has assured us that Al Qaeda is finished. The group that chased out the Iraqi Army and took over Mosul must consist of Christians, Tea Party members and unreconstructed Zionists.

... the western province of Anbar, where militants have managed to hold territory, including the city of Falluja and parts of neighboring Ramadi, for six months.

IIRC, Falluja was a city that even Saddam Hussein would not go into because it was so violent. US/Allies forces cleaned it out. Now, it sounds as if the infestation is back.
