This Is Not Going As Planned: Iraq Prime Minister Defies US, Accuses Saudi Arabia Of “Genocide” (ZeroHedge, June 17, 2014):

Shortly after the US revealed that, in addition to aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships it was also sending a few hundred “special forces” on the ground in Iraq, contrary to what Obama had stated previously, Washington made quite clear it wants Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to embrace Sunni politicians as a condition of U.S. support to fight a lightning advance by forces from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Then something unexpected happened: Iraq’s Shi’ite rulers defied Western calls on Tuesday to reach out to Sunnis to defuse the uprising in the north of the country, declaring a boycott of Iraq’s main Sunni political bloc and accusing Sunni power Saudi Arabia of promoting “genocide.”

In fact, as Reuters reported moments ago, the Shi’ite prime minister has moved in the opposite direction of Obama’s demands, announcing a crackdown on politicians and officers he considers “traitors” and lashing out at neighbouring Sunni countries for stoking militancy.

What Happens When Al-Qaeda Captures A Tank (Video)

Call Of Allah Duty: What Happens When Al-Qaeda Captures A Tank (ZeroHedge, June 16, 2014):

So is it Call of Allah Duty, not so modern warfare? Or, to paraphrase John McClane from Die Hard, “now I have a tank. Ho-ho-ho.”

The caption says “Army of the Mujahideen, Kirkuk sector: using tanks in fighting the army of al-Maliki.” At least they haven’t read the instruction manual on those confiscated US Black Hawks yet….

US evacuates Baghdad embassy staff as ISIS militants overrun another town in northwest Iraq (RT, June 15, 2014):

Sunni insurgents led by ISIS jihadists captured the northwestern Iraqi town of Tal Afar on Sunday, reports say, as the militants continue their advance on Baghdad. The US says it is relocating some of its embassy staff to other Iraqi cities.

The militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS/ISIL) overran the town after fighting with security forces, several people in Tal Araf told Reuters over the phone.

Iraqi Gen. Mohammed al-Quraishi confirmed to CNN that the town fell to Sunni rebels. Tal Afar is located in the Nineveh province and has a population of about 80,000 people, most of whom are Iraqi Turkmen.

ISIS has also reportedly captured two villages in Diyala province.

Meanwhile the US is increasing security at its embassy in Baghdad, the US State Department said, adding that some personnel will be moved out of the capital.

“Some additional US government security personnel will be added to the staff in Baghdad; other staff will be temporarily relocated – both to our Consulate Generals in Basra and Arbil and to the Iraq Support Unit in Amman,” the statement said. However, the “substantial majority” of embassy staff will remain in Iraq.

A US official speaking on condition of anonymity told Reuters that less than 100 US Marines and other military personnel are headed to Iraq to reinforce security at the Baghdad embassy.

The Embassy of the United States in Baghdad remains open and will continue to engage daily with Iraqis and their elected leaders — supporting them as they strengthen Iraq’s constitutional processes and defend themselves from imminent threats,” State Department spokeswoman said in a statement.

Meanwhile, US citizens have been advised to limit travel in five Iraqi provinces, including Anbar and Kirkuk.

On Saturday, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered that the USS aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush be moved to the Persian Gulf in case Washington decides to use military force in Iraq to help fight ISIS.

ISIS insurgents managed to seize the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Tikrit with an estimated 7,000-strong force. On Friday, Shia fighters attempted to counter ISIS momentum near Muqdadiya, just 80 km (50 miles) from Baghdad’s city limits.

The UN said ISIS forces have carried out summary executions and rapes as the group battles to take over the country.

Once an offshoot of Al-Qaeda, the hyper-fundamentalist group active in Iraq and Syria fell out with the global terrorist network. It gained notoriety for its ruthless tactics, which include publicly crucifying and beheading those who violate their strict religious interpretations.

Iraq came under the influence of a Shia-majority government after the US-led invasion toppled Saddam Hussein’s Sunni-dominated regime in 2003. Since the withdrawal of US troops in 2011, sectarian tensions have boiled over, resulting in Sunni insurgents increasingly waging war against the central government.

The ISIS Ploy: Illuminati Sorcery And Sacrifice

The ISIS Ploy: Illuminati Sorcery and Sacrifice (Zen Gardner, June 14, 2014):

by Zen Gardner

It’s rather ironic that this latest wave of Western armed and financed “Islamic” militants invading Iraq and now conveniently threatening Syria and Iran is named ISIS. Or is it deliberate? It’s being used to stand for this oddly anglicised fabricated “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” full on barbaric movement presently sweeping Iraq, but anyone acquainted with any degree of occult knowledge or esoteric mythology know the goddess Isis is one of the most important figures in the so-called mystery schools and a favorite of Freemasonry and the Illuminati.

And for many very dark reasons for which they have manipulated, murdered and thoroughly deceived humanity for millennia.

ISIS Jihadists Release Shocking Photos Documenting Slaying Of 1700 Iraqi Soldiers

–  ISIS Jihadists Release Shocking Photos Documenting Slaying Of 1700 Iraqi Soldiers (ZeroHedge, June 15, 2014):

Several days ago we showed “gruesome” footage of the ISIS jihadists as they engage all opposing forces with unspeakable brutality, clearly designed to demoralize any resistance in their remarkable blitzkrieg which has so far allowed them to steamroll virtually unopposed from northern Iraq all the way to towns located some 50 miles from Baghdad.

Just what ISIS/ISIL’s Baghdad strategy is remains unclear. According to Reuters, “in Baghdad on Sunday, a suicide attacker detonated explosives in a vest he was wearing, killing at least nine people and wounding 20 in a crowded street in the centre of the capital, police and medical sources said. At least six people were killed, including three soldiers and three volunteers, when four mortars landed at a recruiting centre in Khlais, 50 km (30 miles) north of Baghdad.”

US Orders Partial Evacuation Of Baghdad Embassy As Aircraft Carrier Arrives In Gulf

–  US Orders Partial Evacuation Of Baghdad Embassy As Aircraft Carrier Arrives In Gulf (ZeroHedge, June 15, 2014):

Earlier today we reported that despite, or rather due to, all the confusing propaganda from either side, it was not exactly clear whether and how far away from Baghdad the ISIS offensive had been halted (if at all). It appears the confusion has also impacted none other than the US State Department, which moments ago announced it would evacuate an “substantial number” of the whopping 5,500 staff situated in the US embassy in Baghdad on the banks of the Tigris river, staff which incidentally is the largest of any US embassy. Additionally, the State Dept said that some additional U.S. govt security personnel will be added to Baghdad staff as result of instability and violence in certain areas of Iraq.

Shocking Videos: The Post Collapse World Will Be Violent and Brutal *EXTREMELY GRAPHIC IMAGERY* (SHFT Plan, June 13, 2014):

One thing that has become quite common in discussions about the possible collapse of our society is for people to romanticize what the world will look like. With the government gone, people think they’ll be free to do as they they please. They assume that, while the world as we know it will most certainly change, the system will remain fairly stable. Most of us want to believe there will be trading posts to replace grocery stores, that we’ll be able to produce our own food without being bothered, that community groups will defend our interests, and that our home defense armaments will be sufficient to repel looters.

Various theories exist on how the world will look in a post-collapse environment, much of them rooted in historical perspective.
