So, I expect this post to do the same. It's almost as if certain search engines are trying to steer people away from reading about this topic. Too bad. I am just going to keep writing on the topic. It's also a topic that earned me some detractors. Shrugs shoulders. Can't make everyone happy all the time...
1-Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis- The impending destruction of Turkey
2- Pt.2- Kurd/ ISIS Symbiosis- The impending destruction of Turkey
Now let's read what Maliki is saying...............
|Nuri al Maliki|
Former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki accused the Kurds of being responsible for the fall of the Mosul city under the control the so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), referring he possesses a document stating that the Kurds requested the Iraqi Army to withdraw and not fight ISIS in Mosul.
Maliki, speaking of the fall of Mosul, said, “ISIS did not come with a great force, but orders were issued for the present army element not to engage with ISIS who came to fight al-Maliki and the Shiites, not to fight them. The 3rd Division’s commander withdrew and fled.”
He added, “Kurds made public statements that this is not their fight, and everyone pulled back from the battlefield. The withdraw of 35-40% is enough for the collapse of the army.”
Al-Maliki said, “There was an operations room and a plan was arranged to give orders to the Iraqi Army in case ISIS progressed, but they withdrew without a fight,” stressing that the collapse happened due to the withdrawal and not the fighting.
He added that what happened was “premeditated” and a scheme that they had worked on for more than two years, and one of its aspects was the conspiracy that took place in Mosul.This came as the president of Kurdistan, Massoud Barzani repeatedly said that he warned al-Maliki about the fall of Mosul, but the latter took no notice of it.
Maliki is confirming that which seemed highly probable at the time of the fall of Mosul
From June 11/2014- Just throwing it out there- Maliki is weak, Iraq is divided. This no doubt creates a problem for acting in a much needed unified manner? Thinking about the control of some of the area by Kurdish groups? Considering that some of the more duplicitous players in Iraq, amongst the Kurds, may havve cleared the way for ISIS. Keep in mind some of the Kurdish groups are very chummy and heavily involved with Israel.
