US Military Operation Inherent Resolve 2015: Where We Stand in the Mideast, Maps

Your tax dollars at work:

Where does America currently stand in the Mideast? How much territory has #ISIL gained or lost since the summer of 2014?

It all depends on whose maps you believe are accurate, and whose statistics you think are truthfully represented. Posted on our own US military site designed for public consumption, the following statistics are available below. Other maps at the end of this report have been curated from diverse sources across the web. It’s a fluid ever-morphing situation, so a map from April 2015 might look considerably different from a map displaying territorial regions from November.

I try to gather and study at least 6-10 maps every few months and look for large changes. “Syria” as it was once known by geographic boundaries, arguably, no longer exists.  Neither is there any longer a distinct “Iraq” as it might have looked in 2003, right before the US invasion.  There might be a collective memory of the old Syria, but outside of a few clusters of densely populated areas along the Mediterranean coast, Assad’s “Syria” is gone. Enter the newest geographic term: ‘Syraq’. Was this the actual long term goal of US foreign policy since the year 2000 all along? I have to wonder.

The Emergent ‘Syraq’

In the very last map posted in this report, a large elongated triangular region of parts of the [old] Syria and the [old] Iraq are shown as being under ISIS control. These areas are rich in oil and natural gas reserves and are dotted with lucrative wells and energy infrastructure. Are we to believe that this dreadful current outcome was the intended goal for US military interests, having lost 5,000+ American lives, maimed thousands more, killed nearly countless Iraqis, and cost between 3.9 and 6 trillion dollars?  That’s the current estimated price tag from 12 years of Mideast of war – 2003-2011- if we include the cost of Afghanistan.

Our US military continues to report that they are degrading and disrupting the flow of income from oil and gas within ISIL controlled regions, but the maps I am looking at [ dozens of them, daily ] seem to present a different story. Who can we really believe?

Finally! Congress Passes a Bill That Supports the Will of the Majority of the American People

It’s a GOOD news day whenever I can find any evidence that Congress is doing it’s job to represent the will and wishes of the majority of the American people. Today is one of those rare days.

House passes bill to tighten flow of Syrian refugees over Obama’s objections

We have a sitting president with an Iranian born Muslim Chief-of-Staff [ Valerie Jarrett ] who has been determined to ignore the dire threat to our nation presented by radical Islam, in the presence of ALL URGENT EVIDENCE  to the contrary, again and again. It’s a type of madness, far beyond denial, which has caused millions of middle-Americans like me to actually doubt not only the sanity and competence of our Commander-in-Chief, but his actual ulterior motives in running for office. We not only have NOT been safer under the presidency of Barack Obama, but under his watch we have seen the rise of ISIS and had to sit and endure the sight of their members driving around in the desert in brand new vehicles bought and paid for with American tax dollars, brandishing brand new weaponry, rifles and artillery which had been bought for newly trained Iraqi soldiers, now their confiscated property to use against the West.

It’s not hard to see why the internet is bulging with hundreds of underground news reports claiming that ISIS in it’s entirety is in fact a tacit conjoint Mossad / CIA creation and collaboration, a brilliant mirage created by several international alphabet orgs run amok, working for the same multi-national corporations who stand to profit handsomely from the prospect of NEVER-ENDING WAR IN THE MIDEAST which goes on for decades on end.

Yes, I can see why some believe that. I haven’t made up my mind yet, but I’d like to state that nearly every action or inaction that issues forth from Barack Obama regarding ISIS seems to support that thesis. Now the American people have most recently been forced to arm wrestle with the president over the lunacy of allowing hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees carte blanche’ entry into our country – when we have just been witness to one of the most horrific terror attacks in France since World War Two. This awful madness will only end when his presidency is finally over, but between now and then he seems determined to do as much damage to the safety and security of our country as he can. I am pleading with the governors of those states who are IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS  to stand your ground and make sure you do all that is possible to keep Syrian refugees out of the United States.

It makes much more sense to relocate these people in Turkey, or Saudi Arabia, Jordan, or Kuwait. That would be the practical thing to do. They should be re-settled into other Muslim majority nations, not exported across the ocean into a country where their presence will only agitate and create more friction between Christian and Muslim cultures. Since Saudi Arabia has done so much to support and finance ISIS through their own subterranean Mosque system, I suggest the majority of Syrian refugees be sent there, right to their lavish doorsteps. That is what is known as “Karma Calling.”

Look What the Cat Drug In: Top Female ISIS Recruiter Exposed as American College Student Who Enjoys All the Perks of Living in the USA

In the world of infuriating stomach-turning news, the reports I located this morning have to be right up there on my all time “top ten” list. What the cat drug in turns out to be an American born young person, a female, college aged, a journalism student from Seattle, who has been exposed as one of the top recruiters in the world for ISIS. She’s been behind the scenes, pulling the right strings, for dozens of British, European and American citizens to travel abroad to the Mideast to join forces with ISIS, and commit the highest known act of treason against the countries who raised them. Until recently her Twitter handle was @Umm_Waqqas. The account has now been shut down.

Rumor has it since she was outed Seattle college student Rawdah Abdisalaam, aka top secret ISIS recruiter and media propaganda author, has left the Seattle region, and is now either trying to make her way to the Mideast, or laying low in Denver Colorado. Friends in Seattle who knew her growing up are both shocked and incredulous as they learn about her “secret life” as an ISIS recruiter. Below is a photo of Rawdah Abdisalaam:

isis-recruiter

Seattle college student Rawdah Abdisalaam has been exposed by investigators as a top ISIS recruiter, using social media to lure American, British and European young people overseas to join ISIS. She has yet to be taken into custody, and is believed to be living in the Denver Colorado area.

Those who know Rawdah and grew up with her say they had absolutely no idea about any of this. They say she enjoys all the creature comforts of the American lifestyle, including being an enthusiastic Denver Broncos football fan, and snapping pics of big cheeseburgers to post on social media. Jarring, huh? Normal American born twenty-something on the one hand, twisted domestic terrorist and shameless ISIS cheerleader and recruiter on the other.

I went looking to see what “Umm_Waqqas” might be doing on YouTube. I did find an account by that name – using a fake YT username login, and checked in to see if I could ascertain if it was hers. I’m fairly sure it is. If so, she’s not only subscribed to a YT channel named “United Snakes of America” – but she’s also subscribed to “Laura in the Kitchen” and recently “liked” a how-to video on making chocolate-peanut butter cupcakes. Really?????

Could it get any more sickening? Wholesome American young woman who’s a foodie, on the one hand- and philosophically bent out of shape America-hating ISIS devotee’ on the other. I am finding it REALLY HARD to reconcile those two realities.  I hope they catch this treasonous toxic waste of a young woman, and put her away for life – without TV, the internet, the Broncos, or cheeseburgers.

How the hell does this happen? What would inspire an otherwise intelligent American young person, with her entire life in front of her, to throw it all away on a doomed and pathetic effort by a ragtag band of Mideast misfits to child-rape, steal, pillage and behead their way into being obliterated from the face of the earth, soon to be turned to dust?  What kind of wagon is that to hitch one’s fate and future to? Does this young fool actually believe she will continue to walk free, anywhere on earth, and that she won’t eventually sit staring at prison bars for the rest of her life – or worse?

As Jay Leno famously queried of Hugh Grant many years ago:

“What the hell were you thinking?

ISIS Terrorists Are Exploding, Obliterating and Desecrating Iraq’s Sacred Ancient Shrines

As the escalating unfolding of ever more “wars and rumors of wars” continues to mount in the Mideast, some of the most ancient and sacred religious shrines are being obliterated forever. It can only be described as madness and pure human evil to intentionally detonate sacred shrines where people have gathered to worship and find peace for hundreds, if not thousands of years. If the principles being used to justify these horrific acts are allowed to continue to spread in the Mideast, there will come a point soon where not a single historic building, shrine, mosque, archeological site, or treasured historic site in the region will survive.

What kind of insane madman would want to sit on a pile of rubble and reign over thousands of acres of devastated ruins?  What kind of religion commands that such atrocities be enacted? The spirit of absolute evil is inherent in these kinds of actions. These are the acts of Godless revolting men who are devoid of all civilized traits. These are acts which are abominations to the human spirit. The souls of these men will have to answer for these acts. Eventually there will be no words which can describe the level of human depravity which misled men will sink to. Only a complete fool would think and plan to make war upon the entire civilized world, attempting to kill any human being which did not convert to “his concept” of Islam, or any religion for that matter.

We live in preposterously deranged times, where the better minds inherent in most men are literally slipping away. When the ‘religiously insane’ begin to make war on the sane, what hope can there be for the future of human civilization?

In this undated photo posted on a militant website that frequently carries official statements from the Islamic State extremist group, which has been verified and is consistent with other AP reporting, smoke and debris go up in the air as Shiite’s Al-Qubba Husseiniya mosque explodes in Mosul, Iraq. Images posted online show that Islamic extremists have destroyed at least 10 ancient shrines and Shiite mosques in territory – the city of Mosul and the town of Tal Afar – they have seized in northern Iraq in recent weeks.

Call Up an Army of Drones Which Will Rival the Locusts of Egypt to Obliterate ISIS Strongholds

isis-iraq

Map showing cities in Iraq which are currently under ISIS control

Iraq Update 6.26.2014

With sectarian boundaries ever more delineated in fracturing Iraq, American public opinion is fairly split right down the middle as to how much our own military should be involved in the melee. Younger Americans tend to believe “this is not our war” as the aptly titled article on Slate reads this morning. Older Americans, who well recall that “doing too little too late” can result in disaster. Many Americans still have clear memories of the opening moments of World War 2, when the UK stalled and did nothing during the opening salvos of Hitler’s ‘blitzkrieg’ European land grab, only to be suddenly showered with bombs and have their nation nearly destroyed by a newly out-of-control fascist Germany.

Inaction is a bold and somewhat reckless gamble. Moderate military action may be ineffective and futile.  Bold aggressive military action risks the ire of the American people, who it’s reasonable to assume, are both sick and tired or war, and sick and tired of the Mideast saga that never ends, which has already nearly bankrupted the nation, if truth be told.

Since there will be no official ‘boots on the ground’, I continue to make a loud call for an army of US military drones be unleashed on ISIS strongholds which would rival the locusts of Egypt, with US intelligence directing their strikes to decimate leadership in the ranks of the ISIS army. Find the head of the snake and cut it off. Use drones to do this. Keep our people out, but send the robots IN, and keep them there. Make the daily existence of an ISIS foot soldier so miserable that the YouTube recruiting videos made by ISIS are replaced with new footage showing scenes of their own armies’ carnage, brought about by US military drone strikes which never end. Make it worth the untold billions we have spent on this military technology and USE the DRONES to put an end to the expansion of the ISIS insurgency.

From assault “hummingbirds” to nano insect drones, to the clomping stomping mule drones, overhead assault drones, everything we’ve got: use advanced drone robotics to fight the ISIS insurgency –  and do it with enough finesse to have justified the expense of building and developing these little high tech killing machines. Go after it. Now is the moment for the US military to actually show forth a glimmer of brilliance on the battlefield in [what used to be ] Iraq, without the loss of another single living US soldier in Iraq. That’s what I want to see happen.  American tax dollars paid for all this – let’s actually see what it can do to make it worth the terrible terrible cost of going to war in Iraq.

Because if we do nothing, this – ISIS inspired terror attacks – will all be on our doorstep on US soil in less than 2 years. We need aggressive military brilliance via drone use right now in the northern Iraq wastelands where ISIS has gathered, and we need it now, not later.

While Everyone Watches the World Cup, ISIS Is Taking Over Iraq

Events taking place in in Iraq since June 12th have moved with such speed it’s been a real struggle just to keep the blog front page current. For 3-4 critical days between June 10th and June 14th American news media outlets were either on vacation, or operating under a directive NOT to report news out of Iraq, an unheard of calamity in American news reporting.

By the time the US media began to report what was taking place in Iraq, much of it had already happened and been consolidated. It’s been a rapid downhill slide in that country ever since. The material below has been compiled since June 12th. I’m updating the front page about every 48 hours to reflect new developments.

At this pace there will no longer be an “Iraq” as we knew it by the end of the summer. What will exist in it’s place will be a slow motion Mideast bloodbath and a fertile new incubating ground for a fresh round of terror attacks plotted against the West. Who’s to blame? Tune into any one of 6-7 news media outlets and observe the chattering of the talking heads to see where the darts are landing from hour to hour. If it weren’t so darkly comical it would be truly sad. I share my outrage over the debacle of Iraq with millions of other Americans who had family members killed or maimed trying to defend the country since 2003. This will go down in history as one of the greatest military catastrophes of the modern era for the United States, worse than Vietnam. It must be named as what it is – a foreign policy and military disaster on an epic scale.

Dismal tense scene in Baghdad, as Kerry attempts to convince Maliki to form a new government which will include a Sunni majority and quell simmering Sunni outrage over being left out of the existing government. Maliki’s own governing decisions to exclude the Sunni majority in Iraq left the door wide open for the ISIS insurgency to flower.

Iraq Update 6.24.2014

US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Iraq yesterday under heavy security,  commencing urgent national security talks with Iraqi leaders as ISIS seized control of more cities and more territory in the north, and took control of two more border crossings in Syria and Jordan. A map of ISIS controlled regions is now beginning to look like a large noose being drawn around Baghdad, closing ever tighter.

“In Baghdad on Monday, embattled Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki promised Kerry he would form a new government by July 1, following recent elections that preceded the current crisis, as militants reportedly captured the Baiji refinery, the country’s largest.”

In a huge strategic military blunder, President Obama and the US military lost precious time in the days since June 12th pontificating about various prospects and pursuing near futile attempts to rouse the government ofIraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Malik into reasonable rapid action.  The tragic facts must be faced: the existing government of Iraq has neither the competence nor the will to defend it’s own existence and protect the Iraqi people from fast approaching final chaos.

“The failure of the Iraqi government in including the Sunnis and giving them positions in the government and so on and so forth has [had] a direct effect” on the ISIS’s strategic success…”

Had rapid fire US military strike drones been deployed immediately upon the seize of Mosul, much of the subsequent gains achieved by ISIS could have at least been slowed.  That didn’t happen. The day Mosul fell Barack Obama got on a jet and traveled to Palm Springs California to play golf.

The blitzkrieg style attacks being launched every few days by ISIS are being met with no military response to speak of and no opposing force. If this continues for even one more week, the borders of Jordan and Turkey will be threatened and all painfully gained stability in the Mideast could collapse entirely. I have just as much distaste for renewed war in the Mideast as the next war weary American, but doing nothing in the next 14 days will embolden ISIS movements and recruiting efforts to a possible tipping point. I am imploring our military leaders in the US to begin deploying military attack drones immediately to halt the advance of the fanatical terror group ISIS, before Jordan is breached.

BREAKING:  Top Shiite Cleric Calls for a New Government in Iraq

The situation in Iraq seems to be both deteriorating and escalating wildly at the same time, as US lawmakers fiddle with the legal technicalities of various ideas and approaches as to how exactly to proceed. It appears that no one wants to be the specified final decision maker regarding immediate military actions, as they might bear the brunt of any public lashback, so they bat prospects back and forth as a dismayed American citizenry watches helplessly while Iraq burns. Obama states he doesn’t need congressional approval to make military decisions about Iraq, then proceeds to doodle dawdle over which exact decision he will actually finally make, changing his official verbiage on the matter about every 24 hours. “300 Special Forces” aka troops have now become “300 military advisors”, not to be confused with “boots on the ground” and so on.

I’m of the mind that these 300 special-forces-aka-military-advisors will most likely float slightly above the ground via convenient anti-gravity devices in Iraq so that they won’t technically qualify as “boots on the ground”.

Congress is just as tragically comical: squirming around, as all possible military options appear to be too little, too late, or too terrible to consider. We seem to be officially paralyzed in the present by our military past in Iraq. All eyes are watching the horrible fiasco unfurl like a slow motion train wreck, and little or nothing is being done.

To underscore former General Petraeus’ recent comments, lightening hot drone strikes were needed in rapid fire succession north of Baghdad LAST WEEK on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, which would have slowed or possibly halted the advance of the emboldened ISIS maniacs. I am not a military strategist, but this was instantly apparent. There are certain decisions which must be made with the lightening speed commeasurate to the pace of unfolding events. There are no other options when faced with a fast moving deranged terrorist force but to immediately dismantle it using drone power before it garners enough force to penetrate Baghdad. This is what should have been done within 12 hours of learning of the fall of Mosul. And as I love to say, it was NOT rocket science.

Instead President Obama jetted off to Palm Springs to play golf.  This sent a disastrous message to the American people, to watching world leaders, to ISIS and to the Iraqi people. During certain historic moments etched into the Akasha for all time and space, you do not get a karmic “do-over” Mr. Obama. The images of you putting on the golf course as 10 years of cash, blood, sweat, tears and agony poured out by US servicemen and their families in Iraq was swept away in one week is one we will not soon forget. Here are today’s early headlines:

Update 6.18.2014

In the fast moving melee which Iraq has become in the last 10 days, it was unclear what, if any, military actions the US would take to avert a collapse of the teetering Mideast state. Obama has continued to insist that “support and advisory” troops will not act as “boots on the ground” – but instead will form joint centers of military strategy and planned actions to thwart and roll back the ISIS insurgency, acting from within Baghdad to protect the city. It was reported yesterday that Obama had stated he will not need the support of Congress for any actions in Iraq he might choose to pursue. John Kerry will travel to Baghdad to pursue solutions which will end the sectarian strife between Shia and Sunni Islam within Iraq, which is in essence the core reason for recent events. Those animosities are both deep and ancient, and the prospects for a brokered deal to mend the breach between the two factions inside of Iraq are bleak at best. Below are today’s headlines out of Iraq:

6.17.2014 – Iraq crisis: ISIS advances on Baquba as U.S. moves firepower to region

Cited: “Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) — As Islamic militants continue their murderous advance across Iraq, they have a new target in their sights: the city of Baquba, less than 40 miles north of Baghdad.

Gun battles erupted in the city, only a 45-minute drive from the capital, on Tuesday as fighters and Iraqi government forces clashed.

Civilians are fleeing violence there and elsewhere in Iraq even as the United States bolsters its manpower in the region while it mulls what action to take.

According to a Baquba police official and an official in the Baquba governor’s office, militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, have “made a great advance on Baquba” and are pushing very hard to take it, but the city has not fallen.”

“Citizens who are able to bear arms and fight terrorists, defending their country and their people and their holy places, should volunteer and join the security forces to achieve this holy purpose,” Mr Sistani’s representative announced on his behalf during the main weekly prayers in the Shi’ite shrine city of Karbala.

“He who sacrifices for the cause of defending his country and his family and his honour will be a martyr.’’

6.12.204: Boehner: “Obama ‘taking a nap’ on Iraq”

A writer for the Huffington Post is as riddled with questions about all of this as I am:

“First things first: the Blitzkrieg advance of the jihadist ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is astonishing. Why was such an invasion, which required extensive planning and gathering of fighters, not scoped out by the intelligence services of several highly equipped countries, including the U.S.? How is it possible that ISIS has taken over several major Iraqi cities with so few fighters, estimated at between three and five thousand? Mosul alone has a population of 1.8 million. How could so few invaders take it so easily, then take Tikrit, threaten Kirkuk and head toward Baghdad? How is it that a major Iraqi defense force collapsed and deserted in the face of a few hundred ISIS attackers?”   See http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ronald-tiersky/isis-what-does-it-mean-fo_b_5489756.html?utm_hp_ref=politics&ir=Politics

Cited: “More than 90,000 Iraqi soldiers deserted rather than confront ISIS militants, according to the official close to Maliki’s office who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to talk to the news media.”

On 6.12.2014 I came out of “news blogging retirement” and launched the following tirade below against the incompetent useless tripe manufacturing industry that we are forced to endure in the United States which is referred to comically as “the news media.” About 5-6 hours later, one by one, the major news networks began to reluctantly begin reporting what was taking place in Iraq. The reader might not believe me, but I think there is a cause and effect relationship going on there.

Earlier I wrote on 6.12.2014:

“Iraq is Falling to ISIS Jihadi Terrorists and the American TV News Media Doesn’t Care”

Finally around 2 pm pacific time on 6.12.2014, the US based news media people seemed to finally grasp the gravity of what was taking place, and periodic “light” reports began to be broadcast. I still find it unnerving that it took American news orgs fully 3 days to get their heads around this story and set aside their filler content to begin to actually report ACTUALITY as it was taking place in Iraq.

What’s wrong with American news reporting organizations? Is the script so concrete that they are literally not allowed to deviate from it until “cleared” to do so? It was inexcusable that I had to wait for 3 long days – 72 hours – for US news media outlets to begin reporting what was being broadcast all over the internet about the crisis in Iraq.

Were it not for the hard work of the BBC I would not have learned of this urgent world event for 3 long days after it began to unfold. It took the American news media fully 3 days to STOP talking about OJ Simpson and get on board that there was a news event breaking out of the Mideast which could alter the history of the world and re-draw the borders of nations there.

THANK GOD some news org out there is awake at the wheel, because it certainly is not the American news reporting community, which is either collectively on vacation, or has been instructed in their news scripts to ‘IGNORE Iraq events’.

“How do wildfires begin to burn out of control? We all know they begin with smaller fires, which then are whipped by high winds and begin spreading faster than firefighters can arrive to quench the smaller scattered flames. That is the easiest way to describe what is happening right now in the Mideast. A series of small fires ignited by ISIS is building toward a wildfire of renewed war and violence which will be impossible to put out in just a few more months. It’s not rocket science and I am not a military woman, but I’m not blind. What we have here is a growing conflagration, and it must be extinguished NOW, before it spreads into to Israel and every other important city of the Mideast which values the attributes of civilized living over chaos and sudden violent death.” – author, Screenshots news blog on 6.12.2014

During the events of the past three days in Iraq, [ 6.9.14 through 6.12.2014 ] I have repeatedly scoured every TV news outlet I can find, looking for ANY in-depth reporting which would attempt to explain to the American people how the bitter war in Iraq – including military aid work rendered over 13 years, the terrible cost of  1+ trillion dollars spent, 4,500 American lives lost, 12,000+ US soldiers maimed, and nearly 200,000 Iraqis lost  – could suddenly come crashing down down to the ground and be washed away in three short days, as ISIS Jihadi terrorists swept down into Iraq and took city after city, virtually unopposed.

ISIS Marching Toward Baghdad

Cities Under Siege in Iraq

“The jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has seized the Iraqi city of Mosul and looted $450 million from it’s banks, becoming the world’s richest terror group.” – IBT News

In the video below watch the street scenes closely and you will see several BRAND NEW US military vehicles sitting in ruins in the streets, burning. Many others are being hauled off to Syria to be used to fight Jihad in that “ruinous heap” against the tyrant Assad.  Those burning tanks are your tax dollars. That is your kids’ debt to the FED that they will be paying on for the rest of their natural lives, now stolen from the crumbling Iraqi military and being ported away to be used to wage Jihad in the Mideast. I don’t doubt that many of those expensive US armaments, including missiles, tanks, rifles, etc will end up being used to attack Israel at some point very soon. The American people had better pay attention right here, right now, to what is happening in Iraq. You paid for all this, and your children will continue to pay for it for decades to come. You better sit up and take notice.

The preposterously inadequate news report below RE: Iraq aired at 3 am in the dead of night from ABC News and lasted exactly 15 seconds. Are you kidding? Do you believe NOW that scripted TV news operates to “blacklist” certain news stories, no matter how urgent or important they are? These reporters spent more time chuckling about a man in Florida who was feeding alligators, than they spent reporting the most important news story in the Mideast in more than 60 years. THAT’S PSYCHOTIC. That’s “denial” of actuality on a scale that makes me shiver. That’s the kind of “hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” news reporting that lead directly to 9-11, when all the signs were there, and no one was paying attention.

How could this happen? And why has the American news media chosen to stand aside and virtually refuse to report the story?

I reported on 6.12.2014: “It is my understanding from what little I have been able to glean off of alt news sites, that between 30,000 and 90,000 Iraqi troops, all of whom had been meticulously trained and armed by the US military over the past 8 years, for the most part simply laid down their arms, disrobed, changed into civilian clothes, left their military uniforms lying in the dust, and fled, as a mere 800 ISIS insurgents stormed into Mosul and took the city with virtually no opposition. Many deserting soldiers reported that their own commanders had ordered them to stand down and leave. It’s believed by some that Iraqi military commanders had cut a secret deal with ISIS prior to their attacks on Iraqi cities. It was also reported that Iraqi military commanders were the first to flee the coming confrontation, leaving thousands of their own enlisted men with no commanders to lead them. Most of the abandoned Iraqi soldiers then followed suit, and in the biggest act of collective cowardice observed in the modern era, they too removed their uniforms, left their rifles lying in the street, and fled to their homes, where they gathered their families and left the city. By several hours later highways were clogged with tens of thousands of vehicles trying to get out of Mosul, most heading for the northern border of Iraq that leads into Kurdistan. THAT unbelievable report, is what I am finding on the few US based sites and newscasts which have made an effort to report the gist of the story on how Mosul fell in 12 short hours. On 6.11.2014 while all of this was taking place, nearly every news outlet in the United States was re-telling the OJ Simpson story instead of reporting any news out of Iraq.”

Who is ISIS?

Outrage does not begin to describe my own personal emotional reactions to what is taking place. As if the events themselves were not catastrophic enough to rivet the sudden attention of the entire free world – back toward the heart of the Mideast – our own news organizations in the US have utterly failed to even begin to address the magnitude of these events or to adequately report them to the American people. We need the astute reporting of alternative news media now as never before.

All I can do is to urgently call upon all alternative news media people, journalists, bloggers, videographers who might be close to, or in the region of the mayhem, to post and report as much as you can about actual conditions on the ground, as our own news media here in the US is failing the American people on a scale I have never seen, as they insist on ignoring the biggest news story out of the Mideast since 1947.

At what point do the American people besiege their news media to URGENTLY begin reporting the actual news, and to cease and desist wasting our time with trifles, if this is NOT that moment?

Ultimately, ISIS seeks to create an Islamic state from where they would launch a global holy war. Perhaps that war is now beginning as Baghdadi’s ISIS eclipses Zawahiri’s al-Qaeda.”
