"I only ...saw armed people, but not Iraqi military," said resident Firas al-Maslawiof his drive through Mosul on Tuesday. "There was no presence of anygovernment forces on the streets, the majority of their posts destroyed andmanned by (Islamist militants)."
The numerousreports of police and soldiers running from their posts in Mosul raised theprospect that the Iraqi government did not either have the will or resources towin this and other fights.
Iraqi securityforces, trained by Pentagon for years and well equipped with helicopters, tanksand armoured cars, vastly outnumber the jihadists, suddenly melted down in theface of ISIL rebels.
Consider Al Qaedajihadists are created and supported by the US to deal with its dislikes (suchlike Libya’s Gaddafi and Syria’s Assad) and the current Iraq government is apuppet set up by US in Iraq war, both sides are US’ assets. I think it’s adrama conducted by the US. You can see the leadership of Iraqi troops gave upthe city without any fight.
ISISbutchers leave 'roads lined with decapitated police and soldiers'US inside groupused to create a case, with which to ask for more power and money. E.g. the 911attack has been created to get Patriot Act and two wars in Mid-East. What is itnow for this Iraq crisis?

Oilprices spike as Iraq violence flaresSince the moneyused in most oil trading is dollar, the higher oil price will force the buyerto keep more dollar in bank as purchasing power.
