In Amerli, ISIS tasted a bitter defeat and the Iraqi military announced Sunday it had broken a siege of the town of Amerli by forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), hours after the United States launched an air campaign to assist Iraqi civilians there.
The U.S. airstrikes, though limited, had been a decisive factor in the breaking of the siege allowing Iraqi forces and militia to stage a coordinated assault on ISIS-held towns in the area. About 15,000 Shiite Turkmen residents of the town of Amerli had entrenched themselves to resist the march of ISIS forces across northern Iraq.
Whether the U.S. likes it or not, they are aiding and abetting Iran in order to defeat the ISIS.
Speaking live on state TV, General Moussawi said that breaking the siege was a “big achievement and an important victory” for all involved: the Iraqi army, elite troops, Kurdish fighters and Shia militias, he said.
About 15,000 Shia Turkmens were stranded in the farming community, about 170km north of Baghdad but instead of fleeing in the face of ISIS the Shia Turkmens stayed and fortified their positions.
Residents succeeded in fending off the initial attack in June, but Amerli has been surrounded by the ISIS since mid-July.
Shoebat.com brought scenes from Middle Eastern sources that show the jubilant forces led by Haj Al-A’meri after the defeat of ISIS:
Viewing the story from sources in English does not convey the sectarian nature of this battle.
Just by translating the statement (see 2:58) should open the eyes of westerners when Al-Ameri says:
“This solidarity that happened between the [Shiite] Jihadis is credited to Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani. By his fatwa, he unified the Mujahideen, he unified all of us. We fight each next to each other as a fortress.”
A “Jihadi” is a “Jihadi” is a “Jihadi” regardless of being Sunni or Shiite, sooner or later this Muslim Cain will kill his Christian or Jewish brother Abel.
Here is their anthem with scenes of their battles against ISIS:
So what are these saying?
We scream in the face of death
We are the Ali Brigades
Fasten close to my heart
The love of Ali as a shield
Principle #1 for westerners to understand the sectarian issue; Ali is the icon of the Shiites and Abu Bakr is the icon of the Sunnis and the Sufi Turks unite both. This is a sectarian affair that cannot and will not end until the Turks intervene.
For now, the Shiite Iraqi Sistani is the one calling the shots in Iraq. He is of almost mythological stature to millions of followers in Iraq and beyond, has seized his most active role in politics in a decade.
Sistani rules from the holy city of Najaf and has asserted his dominance over public affairs, demanding politicians choose a new government without delay and potentially hastening the end of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s eight-year tenure.
Sistani, an Iranian born Shia and is considered Iraq’s most respected leader. His fatwa, or religious ruling, is expected to galvanize a significant movement from within Iraq’s majority-Shia population. Al-Sistani is, after all, the most influential voice for Iraq’s estimated 20 million Shia faithful.
Despite his identification as a sectarian leader, the 84-year-old Sistani has been so far thought to be by westerners as a moderating influence in Iraqi politics.
Iran, Washington’s principal adversary in the region and a Shia power, has mobilized its elite Quds forces from its Revolutionary Guards. But Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president, has reportedly assured al-Maliki that Iran will not invade.
But wisdom says that we should read the writing on the wall, the king of Babylon’s days are numbered and Iran will soon be moving in and another great enemy will arise against the U.S. and Israel.
Evidence to this is that WISDOM should dictate that no matter who removes terrorists and dictators, the U.S. policies will never work since from the era of Ronald Reagan to Obama, every time the U.S. tried to aid Muslims to defeat an enemy, it backfired. When the U.S. aided the Mujahideen in Afghanistan against the Russians during Reagan, it gave birth to the Taliban. Removing dictators has also proved disastrous under Obama. Today they want to aid the Kurds and tomorrow the Kurds will turn against the U.S. and Israel. Today we aid the Turks and the Turks will end up against us if it already hasn’t. The only solid method is to keep what the wisest of Sykes Picot have installed which was designed to keep the Islamists bound in the pit of hell. Anything else will unleash the pit of hell upon humanity. What the west has been doing in the last two decades is removing what has restrained this arising beast:
“And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming” (2 Thessalonians 2:6-8)
