Al-Douri Audio Tapes Calls For Resistance
ISIS, as in the ancient Egyptian cult of the goddess of fertility and magic. The media picture being presented adds up less and less. Details leaking out suggest that ISIS and the major military ‘surge’ in Iraq - and less so in neighboring Syria - is being shaped and controlled out of Langley, Virginia, and other CIA and Pentagon outposts as the next stage in spreading chaos in the world’s second-largest oil state, Iraq, as well as weakening the recent Syrian stabil ...

With the Islamic warriors of ISIS having captured all the border posts between Iraq, Syria and Jordan, we may be witnessing the end of Sykes-Picot. That was the secret 1916 treaty by which the British and French carved up the Ottoman Empire, with the Brits taking Transjordan and Iraq, and the French Syria and Lebanon. Sykes-Picot stuck in the craw of Osama bin Laden. Now his most fanatical followers have given him a posthumous triumph. President Obama sai ...

Shadowy Iranian general often linked to terrorism may now be the best hope to save Iraq

Of all the players on the Middle East stage, the presidents, prime ministers and princes, perhaps the most important is a quiet, slim, grey-haired man who operates from the shadows on behalf of Iran, the region’s dominant Shiite power. Gen. Qassem Suleimani, commander of the Quds Force, may hold the answers to solving the crisis gripping Iraq as Sunni militias threaten to tear the country apart. But if he is the solutio ...

BAGHDAD - Iraqi premier Nuri al-Maliki, accused by domestic opponents and, increasingly, by once firm American allies of "sectarianism" that has fuelled a Sunni insurgent onslaught, is a political survivor whose time may be up.Though lauded early on in the job for pragmatically cracking down on Shiite militias and reaching out to Sunni leaders, the 63-year-old Shiite now faces the toughest test of his leadership.Washington fa ...

WASHINGTON – The panic that engulfed this capital after the fall of Mosul, when it appeared that the Islamist fanatics of ISIS would overrun Baghdad, has passed. And the second thoughts have begun. “U.S. Sees Risk in Iraqi Airstrikes,” ran the June 19 headline in the Washington Post, “Military Warns of Dangerous Complications.” This is welcome news.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Obama administration is certain that Maliki will be unable or unwilling to create a governing body that encompasses Iraq’s Sunni minority. As a result, American officials told the newspaper that a new governing body made up of Sunnis and Shiites would be necessary to bring some kind of peace to the country – one that does not include Maliki.

RT: Over the last week ISIS has gained a foothold in the country's north and is now advancing on Baghdad. What could have led to the onslaught being so quick and successful? Ivan Eland: I think it has been planned for years. ISIS sort of incubated its combat capabilities in Syria and it sort of avoided fighting the Syrian government and let the other rebel groups in Syria take the brunt of the damage.
