Iraq voices anger as US air force defends Irbil
while I support the use of air power, there are a lot of fronts on this war -including Syria itself. only so much we can do..Iraq's political class has watched with fear and envy in the last fortnight as American jets have slowed the Islamic State extremist group's advance towards the Kurdish stronghold of Irbil.
At the same time, the group, formerly known as Isis, has been trying to encircle Baghdad – untroubled by air strikes. Its manoeuvres near the national capital in recent days have consolidated gains it has made in the last two tumultuous months and made the very existence of Iraq in its current borders ever more precarious.
new Iraqi PM - so now what?
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
