    Good thing we brought them democracy eh? Wogs really appreciate and thrive in such a puppet-built regime, glad we could do them such a favor.

    (Reuters) - A wave of car bombs exploded across Baghdad on Saturday, killing more than 60 people, and militants stormed a university campus in western Iraq, security and medical sources said.In total, there were a dozen blasts in mainly Shi'ite districts of the capital, the deadliest of which occurred in Bayaa, where a car bomb left 23 people dead, many of them young men playing billiards. "I was about to close my shop when I heard a huge explosion on the main commercial street," said Kareem Abdulla, whose legs were still shaking from the shock. "I saw many cars set ablaze as well as shops". Other bombs went off near a cinema, a popular juice shop and a Shi'ite mosque. No group immediately claimed responsibility for any of the bombings, but the Shi'ite community is a frequent target for Sunni Islamist insurgents who have been regaining ground and momentum in Iraq over the past year. Since Thursday alone, militants have seized parts of Ramadi and Falluja, the two main cities in the mainly Sunni Anbar province. On Saturday, they took control of the campus of Anbar University in Ramadi. A member of the security and defense committee in parliament said the insurgency could not be quelled by force alone because the root cause was political. Critics of Iraq's Shi'ite-led government say its treatment of the once-dominant Sunni minority is the main driver of the insurgency.

    "SECURITY WILL GET WORSE"
    "The Iraqi government now relies on using force to solve things, that is why security will get worse," said Shwan Mohammed Taha, predicting that violence could spread to other Sunni-dominated provinces such as Diyala. "This is not only deterioration, it is a failure to manage the security file." Parts of Ramadi have been held by anti-government tribesmen and insurgents since the start of the year. Overnight, gunmen fought their way past guards into the university, planting bombs behind them. The militants eventually allowed students and teaching staff to leave, but remained in control of the campus late on Saturday, exchanging fire with security forces. A professor trapped inside the physics department told Reuters some staff who live outside Ramadi had been spending the night at the university because it was the exam period. "We heard intense gunfire at about 4 a.m. We thought it was the security forces coming to protect us but were surprised to see they were gunmen," he told Reuters by telephone. "They forced us to go inside the rooms, and now we cannot leave." Sources in Ramadi hospital said they had received the bodies of a student and a policeman. The identity of the assailants was not clear. Ramadi and Falluja were overrun at the start of the year by tribal and Sunni insurgents, including the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

    SUPPLY LINES
    Security forces have regained control of central Ramadi, but the suburbs and outlying areas have swung back and forth between them and the militants. Falluja, around 50 km (30 miles) away, is still in insurgent hands. One of the guards at the university said he believed the militants' real aim was to seize an area called Humaira behind the campus, which would allow them to set up supply lines between Ramadi and Falluja. "I think the militants will withdraw as their target was not the university. They came to stay in Humaira, and we know how important it is for them," he said. "They want to be connected with their gunmen in Falluja". Almost 480,000 people have been forced to leave their homes in Anbar over the past six months, according to the United Nations - Iraq's largest displacement since the sectarian bloodletting that climaxed in 2006-07. Violence is still well below those levels, but last year was Iraq's deadliest since security began to improve in 2008. Nearly 800 people were killed across the country in May alone - the highest monthly toll this year so far. On Thursday, militants moved into the city of Samarra in the adjacent province of Salahuddin and briefly occupied a university there as well as two mosques, raising ISIL's black banner until airstrikes forced them to retreat. The following day, insurgents fought Iraqi security forces in the northern city of Mosul. The head of Mosul morgue said the bodies of 59 civilians and 11 people had been brought in since Friday. Another source at the morgue said there were still corpses on the streets that could not be recovered because some districts of the city remained under militant control.

    Iraqis are Arabs, not the same thing as the builders of the first Mesopotamian civilizations of the ancient world (Sumerians, Assyians, Babylonians, etc.). Arabs largely displaced the indigenous natives with a few exceptions (i.e. Kurds) by the time of the Arabic conquest of Persia.

    I know, but still; greasy brown swarthoids either way.

    But for the love of God, please don't tell me that they were "Aryans". The WN crowd is as bad as niggers when it comes to making bullshit claims like that. Blue eyed "Aryans" founded Chinese and Indian civilizations, built the pyramids in Egypt, constructed monoliths in neolithic Europe, beat the prairie niggers to America...

    Pardon my rant.

    Never even crossed my mind; a Semitic is a Semitic ancient or contemporary. The only ones with any real claim to being called "Aryans" these days are the Persians of the ancient variety. Modern Persians- outside of the Parsees in India- are probably mixed with some kind of raghead to whichever degree.

    An awful lot of "Semites" aren't all that different from "Mediterraneans", but I suppose I'm preaching to the choir.

    I can't even count how many dagos I see every day who could just as easily be Iranians, Syrians, Sephardic Jews, etc. And there's definitely a genetic component that causes a compulsion to wear gold chains and tacky clothes.

    I'm inclined to agree with Carlton Coon that they tend to be the most creative race. I have no problem admitting that the most important innovations in language and civilization in general tend to have arisen among various groups of greaseballs. Needless to say, the bloodlines of those types were much less polluted back in the day.

    No I get where you're coming from- sometimes it's easier to lump them all into one convenient category: wog, swarthy, etc. but this isn't universally true, especially the closer one comes to Europe. Someone might consider, say, an Andalusian to be no different from an Arab- but that'd be a big error to make :lol:

    Al-Qaeda Seizes Iraq’s Mosul, Moves on Kirkuk

    Posted By Jason Ditz On June 10, 2014 @ 7:05 pm In News | No Comments

    Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) is pressing its military success in northern Iraq, seizing the oil rich city of Mosul and moving eastward toward the Kirkuk Province, overrunning more towns along the way.

    [IMG]

    Months of fighting in Anbar Province hadn’t gone well, but troops in the north seem even less up to resisting the militants, as many simply dropped their weapons and fled in the face of the offensive.

    Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is calling for an immediate declaration of a state of emergency by parliament, accompanied by an Interior Ministry statement confirm Mosul is entirely outside of government control now.

    The situation in Iraq’s Sunni Arab regions had been growing more and more dire for months now, but now seems to be at a tipping point, where AQI is in a position to seize territory wholesale, and Iraq’s military seems to be struggling mightily to do anything about it.

    The territory in Iraq is only part of AQI’s holdings now, which also include a broad swath of northern and eastern Syria, giving them a more or less contiguous empire from the outskirts of Aleppo to Fallujah and Mosul.

    Islamist insurgents in Iraq have seized the city of Tikrit, their second major gain after capturing Mosul on Tuesday, security officials say. Tikrit, the hometown of former leader Saddam Hussein, lies just 150km (95 miles) north of the capital Baghdad. Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki has vowed to fight back against the jihadists and punish those in the security forces who have deserted. The insurgents are from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). ISIS, which is also known as ISIL, is an offshoot of al-Qaeda. It controls considerable territory in eastern Syria and western and central Iraq, in a campaign to set up a Sunni militant enclave straddling the border. There were also reports on Thursday of fighting further south, in Samarra. Separately, at least 21 people were killed and 45 hurt by a suicide bomber at a Shia meeting in Baghdad, police said. As many as 500,000 people fled Mosul after the militants attacked the city. The head of the Turkish mission in Mosul and almost 50 consulate officials are being held by the militants, Turkish officials say.

    The insurgents moved quickly south, entering the town of Baiji late on Tuesday. There were heavy clashes reported in Tikrit, with dozens of insurgents attacking security forces near the headquarters of the Salaheddin provincial government in the city centre. One report said that Governor Ahmad Abdallah had been captured, but this has not been confirmed. One eyewitness told the BBC that gunmen had entered the city from four different directions and a police station had been set on fire.

    ISIS in Iraq
    • The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has 3,000 to 5,000 fighters, and grew out of an al-Qaeda-linked organisation in Iraq
    • ISIS has exploited the standoff between the Iraqi government and the minority Sunni Arab community, which complains that Shia PM Nouri Maliki is monopolising power
    • It has already taken over Ramadi and Falluja, but taking over Mosul is a far greater feat than anything the movement has achieved so far, and will send shockwaves throughout the region
    • The organisation is led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - an obscure figure regarded as a battlefield commander and tactician. He was once the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, one of the groups that later became ISIS.
    [IMG]
    AFP news agency quoted police and witnesses as saying there was fighting at the northern entrance to Samarra - which is just 110km north of Baghdad. Earlier Mr Maliki vowed to fight back against the militants. He has asked parliament to declare a state of emergency. In a live TV address, he said a "conspiracy" had taken place in Mosul and surrounding Ninevah province.

    Mr Maliki said he did not want to apportion blame for who had ordered the security personnel "to retreat and cause chaos". He added: "Those who deserted and did not carry out their jobs properly should be punished but we will honour those who are resisting." Mr Maliki urged units still fighting to carry on and told the people of Ninevah: "Do not give in. We are with you, the state is with you, the army is with you. Even if the battle is a long one, we will not let you down." Mr Maliki said "terrorists" had "come to Iraq to implement what they have been doing in Syria". Civilians crossed the Tigris river to escape the fighting in Mosul, as the BBC's Paul Adams reports He pledged to "reorganise the armed forces to cleanse Ninevah of the terrorists and those who helped them". Residents of Mosul said jihadist flags were flying from buildings and that the militants had announced over loudspeakers they had "come to liberate" the city. Many police stations were reported to have been set on fire and hundreds of detainees set free. ISIS has been informally controlling much of Nineveh for months, and in the past week has attacked other areas of western and northern Iraq, killing scores of people. The Iraqi government is struggling with a surge in sectarian violence that killed almost 800 people, including 603 civilians, in May alone, according to the UN. Last year, more than 8,860 people died.
