2:04 am
iraq become a sovereign nation the minute the us realize that it's of war in the country result in the creation of yet another failed state because see no western powers have done nothing but violate iraq's autonomy by dismantling its government launching depleted uranium and white phosphorous attacks and occupied its people for the last decade this is all news to me. well the latest reports from iraq suggest al qaeda linked isis militants have taken over vital oil facilities in the city of baiji however their final target is baghdad with the jihad this reportedly planning to create a new islamist state within the ruins of the country that says iraq is already falling apart as artie's gun each if you can report iraq is on the verge of erupting isis is controlling a predominantly sunni part of the bach shia sphere there further onslaught kurds could split off at any moment a secretary and war is brewing now the government will have to make a strategic choice putting the entire army to attack and take back that city and
