US. Have no good options left in Iraq...
US's wrong policy and ISIS is
a growing threat in Iraq
The Islamic State in Iraq and Sham, or the militant uprising of the Sunnis, has controlled Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, along with most of the provinces of Samara and Tikrit. And now heading to Dyala and to the capital Baghdad .
Finally the Kurdish Peshmerga took control of the areas which they were struggling to get them back through negotiations with the Iraqi government over the past decade. And finally the President Obama and the U.S. policy makers are able to read the Iraqi scene correctly and to understand that there will not be a new democratic Iraq without the Sunnis or the Kurds, or any other ethnic groups in Iraq. Moreover, it's clear that the US has no plans to get involved militarily.
The wrong policies of the U.S. administration has made the Iraqi institutions disintegrate. The U.S. policy and support for Mr. Maliki as a unique and only legitimate representative of the components of the Iraqi people and to allow the regional states to interfere in the Iraqi affairs and control the state institutions and the oil wells proved to be disastrous.
ISIS which started out as part of al Qaeda, became an independent dealer of the Islamist mayhem. The fine distinction probably means little to the Shiites and Christians it slaughters. Now, the Sunni Islamic extremists has taken control of the border areas between Iraq and Syria.
The ISIS and Sunni’s coalition got its start in Fallujah, after the US. invasion, as a band of Saddam Hussein’s disbanded Presidential Guard. They’d been joined by hundreds of alQaeda Jihadists from the Arabian Peninsula and were able to mount raids into several cities in Iraq. In addition, the Syrian civil war provided new opportunities to the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham.
ISIS has also received financial and propaganda support from the Islamist radical movements . It is backed by the Saudi Arabia. The remnants of Saddam’s regime and the tribes believe that they have a chance to carve out a purely Arab Sunni state in western Iraq. The Assad regime benefits politically from the ISIS presence in Syria, but there is no decisive evidence that Assad is responsible for either the group’s creation or its clashes with fellow rebel organizations. The regime of al-Assad is working with al-Qaeda in order to divide the Syrian opposition. The argument that they are in cahoots with a fertile soil gains credibility because it is obvious that the Assad regime benefits from the presence of ISIS and other Jihadists in Syria.
