2014 Iraq Conflict [Opinion & Analysis]

Interesting nugget from the same article:

 

Moreover, rather like what happened in Syria, the Sunni offensive is likely to spur a transformation of the Iraqi Army from the sorry mess it is now into a more resilient and operationally effective force.

 

In Syria, the army reeled in the face of the rebellion in 2011; desertions were rife and large sections of territory were lost to the insurgency. But as incompetent commanders were killed or relieved and a new leadership emerged, the army was able to bring its vastly greater firepower to bear on an increasingly fractionated adversary. Its combat capability was multiplied by the successful integration of civilian militias and the intelligence and tactical advice supplied by Iran. This trajectory is likely to be replicated in Iraq.

The difference between Iraq and Syria is that Syria had the benefit of NOT having American advisors. Iraq does. And these advisors will ensure that Iranian help to Iraq is compromised.

ISIS has destroyed the statue of the famous poet, Abu Tamma, in Mosul.

These acts will probably create a lot of discontent towards ISIS from even the Sunnis in the region. Those that are nationalistic are proud of their country's heritage and history. ISIS are made up of foreigners. Imagine if foreigners came into your country and destroyed centuries old artifacts. 

Their ideology is so extreme that you can use it to justify just about anything as being haram.

Surprising that even after Ayatollah Sistanis ruling, an army of a few thousands still control large parts of Iraq

that is because shia fighters are being held back so far due to fear of an all-out sectarian war that it seems that the world media so wish to see.

Your prayers have been answered :)

Salam Jaabir,

Inshallah more of them die and continue to kill eachother. Onces they stop getting funds thats when they start to kill eachother. I saw on al iraqia tv,the ISis whimping woman for refusing to have zawaj nakah. There are females to that are getting trained by isis,it crazy that its getting to this level. Those woman are stuiped for truesting those takferis,they will all be raped by them.

I hope malkie stays, I dont understand why some people dont want him,his not even the problem,isis wants power and control over humans,they are brain washed takferis that have no mind of their own. If malki was so bad to sunnis then why does he have sunnis moving from sunni parties to his party? He has increased the soilders pay just a couple of days ago it was on the news and is doing a good job,that man is genuinely good. People need to stop listen to al shariqiah tv,they like the old natham..

It sad that even some shia are with sunnis against malki.. Vote for al chalabi if you dont want al malkie.. The people voted for malkie. I dont think ayatallah al sistanini would say such thing,specially in this time...

 The people voted for malkie

 

Salam

The people voted for his party, not Maliki specifically. If Maliki goes it doesn't mean he has to be removed from power like Morsi. The parliament can choose another leader but the political party will remain.

 

I think this is how it works, hopefully someone can clarify. I am not 100% sure.

Wsalam mayf321d,

But if they vote for his party that technichelly means they have voted for him. From what I have understood people voted for him. I dont think his the issue,they are just making excauses to make it seem like his the problem and that his causing the sunni and shia divison.

The strategy they are doing now is an old but generally effective one (the Iraqi Army). 

You have three group right now that are involved, from the Iraqi Army side

1) Those military personnel that are already highly trained and experienced. This is the smaller group, and they are the ones who are fighting today

2) The civilians with military training and experience but who are not trained to the level needed for this combat. They are undergoing supplementary training and will be in the battle soon, if needed.

3) The volunteers with no military training. This is the largest group, but the ones who will need the most training. This will take a minimum of one to two months to train them in how to use their weapon and in basic military tactics. So they will not be active in the fight for some time

 

ISIS is pursuing the 'blitzkreig' or lighting warfare tactic that was perfected by the German Army during WWII. They use the element of surprise in addition to forming alliances (beforehand) with Iraqi army traitors. All the advantages they have are in the beginning, the element of surprise, shock and awe, etc. If the fight is protracted then this tactic is no longer effective, so they will have to switch tactics or they will lose. 

 

They were assuming that they could reach Baghdad in a week or so, wipe out the Central Govt, (decapitation strike) then they could control the country. This has not happened, and the longer this goes on, the more the advantage switches from their side to the side of the Iraqi Army. They (ISIS) underestimated their enemy and overestimated their own abilities. The only way ISIS could have won, is if the majority fled and hid, like what happened when Saddam invaded Karbala and Najaf after the first Gulf War. They were counting on that. It didn't happen, in large part because of the brave leadership of Sayyid Sistani(ha). So as long as the Iraqi Army keeps up the pressure, ISIS will lose, that is for sure. Most likely the volunteer force will not be needed, but they should train them regardless, should a situation like this repeat in the future.

 

In order for the Iraqi Army to win, all they need to do is stay together as a cohesive force, hold the ground they have currently (i.e. don't lose any additional territory) and slowly, even inch by inch, advance toward those areas currently controlled by ISIS, Mosul, etc. This may takes weeks, or even months, but as long as they keep going in this direction, they will eventually win with the help of Allah(s.w.a).  

 

LONG TERM SOLUTION

 

The problem is that even if the Iraqi Army wins, the victory will not be decisive. The reason is because after this current group of takfiris is wipe out, most likely their patrons in KSA and the Gulf will simply form a new group of Takfiri hoards to attack again, using different tactics. 

 

The long term solution is to ween ourselves off of dependence on carbon based energy (oil and gas) and to buy electric cars if we can, use solar panels or wind turbines as we can, or encourage our governments to build nuclear power. 

If demand for oil and gas drops significantly (although this would also effect the govt of IRI and I don't know what to do about that, but it wouldn't effect them as much). then the money train from the Gulf and KSA to Takfiri groups throughout ME and Pakistan will be cut off and the Takfiris will crawl back into their holes and caves. That will be a permenant solution.

Disgusting. ISIS just want power (taking Mosul), money (stealing money from mosul, imposing jizya) and women (jihad-nikah). The people of Mosul deserve it after their treacherous actions. ISIS will take defile all of your women just because, apparently, Maliki wasn't nice to you Sunnis. Enjoy your new lives

Dear Momineen may Allah grant you success 
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatoh 
People have been constantly calling us from different parts of the world regarding the Friday prayers statement of Shaykh Mehdi Al-Karbalaei on the 14th of Sha’ban 1435 A.H. (defending the country is Wajib Kifa’i – collective obligation). 
This statement was clarified to us by the office of His Eminence (long may he live) in Najaf. They said it is only pertinent Iraqis inside Iraq and with the following four conditions: 
1- Volunteering to defend the country and its sanctities against the terrorists should be through official channels and in conjunction with the government authorities. 
2- Employees and other workers must refer to their relevant official departments regarding their volunteering. 
3- The number of volunteers required shall also be determined by the official authorities. 
4- Defense is the duty of those capable of taking up arms and are trained to carry out the required tasks satisfactorily and not just enlisting large numbers [of volunteers].
