Special forces in Iraq are fighting jihadist militants who have reportedly taken over swathes of two cities. The clashes with Sunni fighters from the al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) are taking place in Fallujah and Ramadi. Both cities are in the province of Anbar where Sunni militant activity has been on the rise. Meanwhile at least 23 people were reportedly killed in militant attacks elsewhere in Iraq.THESE ARE THE FRUITS OF APPEASEMENT, UNILATERAL WITHDRAWAL ON A PUBLIC TIME-TABLE, AND THE INABILITY AND UNWILLINGNESS OF OBAMA AND HIS COMRADES TO DO ANY HEAVY-LIFTING EITHER DIPLOMATICALLY OR MILITARILY - AND HIS FAILURE TO SECURE A STATUS OF FORCES AGREEMENT.
IN EFFECT, OBAMA HANDED IRAQ TO IRAN AND AL QAEDA.
THERE IS A WAY TO REESTABLISH SOME POSITIVE ORDER IN THE REGION:
SUPPORT AND INDEPENDENT KURDISTAN AND BREAK-UP SYRIA AND IRAQ AND A PART OF TURKEY AND IRAN TO DO SO.
