I saw a video clip of ISIS traveling single file on a desert road, it would have been too easy.
It seems obvious that the Mosul civilian leadership and military leadership were "in the bag" for the ISIS assault. I don't hear of many shots being fired, so it looks more like genuine Iraqi "rebels" against Maliki's authoritarian Shia leadership. I also suspect US involvement because of the lack of Satellite and CIA boots on the ground information warning of the attack. This is all very good for the Saudi OIL interests and profitability and money motives that move the World. The Sunnis and the Kurds appear to have revolted against the Baghdad leadership. Ergo, follow the money and see who has been supporting these insurgencies at a discreet level. The USA had been arming ISIS with Libyan weapons funneled through the US Embassy in Benghazi and money as well. Turkey had been assisting the ISIS. The Saudis have been funding and arming the ISIS. Is the picture beginning to come into focus yet? An army of 30,000 troops, as in Mosul, doesn't fight if its' leadership tells it not to fight. Focus, focus, concentrate on reality, turn off your Mainstream Media and find out what is really going on.
Many of the refugees talk of disenchantment with the Malaki government, who've shown little inclination for reconciling with the Sunni population. They don't fear the ISIS, but they do fear indiscriminate retaliatory air-strikes from their own government. It would be no huge step for Malaki to descend into Assad mode.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
