Iraq Civil War

Postby carla » Thu Jun 12, 2014 2:19 am

It's been going on for a while. I've read in-depth articles that state, with good background and sources, that Iran was involved in picking Iraqi gov't. Just read a long article about Maliki.
Why did we bother -- all those lives for what looks to be nothing -- we can't fight other country's civil/religious wars.
I find nothing surprising in what is happening there.

If you're out of the loop, just google "news." Mosul & Tikrit have been taken, and more.

In my very humble opinion, we really do not need an Islamic super state who wants to blow us up. That is the goal of ISSI. To create a state made up of Iraq, Iran, and Syria. just food for thought.

^ Norm, I agree. and it's ISIS, Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

And Iran is Shiite, (ISIS is Sunni) may be willing to work with Iraq and USA against the Iraqi Sunni opposition. Surprised? Seems some mainstream media news that summarizes some real and accurate (and indisputable) history may be in order.

I realize how complicated this is, but with no knowledge of the sectarian battles, one has no ground from which to view the entire regional situation. After researching Sunni v. Shiite, also research Iran's role in picking Iraq's government.
If you have time, go back decades to nation creation, of Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan .... I said it was complicated! And I know nothing, I've just read a few articles.

I won't leave out my personal rant:
RELIGION IS SO DESTRUCTIVE.
Up with humanists.

Hard to even imagine what is going on right now that is invisible to citizens. And don't forget the black budget!
I like to be somewhat informed, or even more important, know that I am not, in a historic/political sense. But then there's that whole other side...
