Islamic State Within Eight Miles of Baghdad

Sunday, October 12, 2014 | Tag Cloud

BAGHDAD (Worthy News)-- Iraqi officials have issued a desperate plea for America to bring US ground troops back to the embattled country, as heavily armed Islamic State militants came within striking distance of Baghdad, the Telegraph reported.

Amid reports that Isil forces have advanced as far as Abu Ghraib, a town that is effectively a suburb of Baghdad, a senior governor claimed up to 10,000 fighters from the movement were now poised to assault the capital.

The warning came from Sabah al-Karhout, president of the provisional council of Anbar Province, the vast desert province to the west of Baghdad that has now largely fallen under jihadist control.

The province’s two main cities, Fallujah and Ramadi, were once known as "the graveyard of the Americans", and the idea of returning there will not be welcomed by the Pentagon. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/islamic-state/11156264/Iraq-asks-for-US-ground-troops-as-Isil-threaten-Baghdad.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Ever since America came into Iraq the people have wanted us out. We secured their country, instead they have chosen their own ways. We trained their Army and police, and they murdered us. America's blood is all over Iraq today, Now they want us to return. I say NO. Let them fight their own battles. If they won't fight, then the country's not worth fighting for.
