    Pentagon: Iraq Likely to Split Into Three States

    After plunging a functioning country into war and ostensibly pushing for a unified new government, Pentagon officials are now beginning to accept that the country they helped unravel may ultimately settle into three separate nations.

    "Iraq is fractured," House Armed Services Ranking Member Representative Adam Smith said during a hearing on Wednesday. "You can make a pretty powerful argument, in fact, that Iraq is no more."

    Smith joins a growing chorus of officials – including US Defense Secretary Ash Carter – who are starting to recognize that merging multi-sectarian Iraq into a single, inclusive government may have been a Pentagon pipedream all along.

    While newly elected Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has promised to unite his nation, some suggest that other government officials are less interested in that goal. Al-Abadi’s Shiite-majority central government may be less inclined to welcome Sunnis into their power circle, and the Sunni population already distrusts the central government, which many feel has not played an active enough role in protecting Sunni communities from the self-proclaimed Islamic State terrorist group.

    "How do we offer the Sunnis, you know, a reasonable place to be if they don’t have some support from Baghdad?" Smith asked.

    When you consider the Kurdish population in the north, which has felt removed the rest of Iraq since long before the fall of Saddam Hussein, the future could see the nation broken into three territories governed independently by Shias, Sunnis, and Kurds.

    "What if a multi-sectarian Iraq turns out not to be possible? That is an important part of our strategy now on the ground," Defense Secretary Carter said during the hearing. "If that government can’t do what it’s supposed to do, then we will still try to enable local ground forces, if they’re willing to partner with us, to keep stability in Iraq, but there will not be a single state of Iraq."

    In recent months, the Defense Department has ratcheted up its military efforts in Iraq – a country in which it is no longer at war. Over the past ten months, the Pentagon has deployed an additional 3,000 US ground troops back into Iraq, despite President Obama’s promise to wind-down America’s foreign wars. While Washington pledges "no boots on the ground," these troops are officially being sent in an advisory capacity.

    Most recently, Obama ordered the deployment of 450 troops to move back into Iraq, and that order even comes with the possibility of new US military bases being constructed in the country. Senior officials in Washington told the New York Times that these training operations are aimed at drawing Sunni tribes into the stabilization effort.

    "The Sunnis want to be part of the fight," an official speaking on condition of anonymity said. "This will help empower them, creating more recruits and more units to fight ISIL."

    In light of Wednesday’s hearing, these latest deployments can be seen as a last ditch effort to fix a nation Washington was largely responsible for breaking.

    "We could drop 200,000 US troops in the middle of this," Smith said during the hearing. "It wouldn’t solve the problem, and I sincerely hope we’ve learned that lesson and that we don’t go deeper and deeper into that, you know, costing more lives and more treasure while only making the problem worse."

    Given that the US is currently spending approximately $9 million a day on airstrikes in Iraq, officials are likely still a few more years away from learning that lesson. Still, Iraq’s future may be inevitable at this point.

    "It’s a fractured country with the Kurds in the north. The Shias have their stronghold in Baghdad, essentially, and you have the Sunni territories largely to the west," Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard said on Wednesday.

    "Even as we hear rhetoric from Prime Minister Abadi, the reality is that experts, both who wear the uniform and those who have studied the Middle East for a very long time, all say for practical purposes, you have three regions in Iraq."

    Iraqi Army Retakes Anbar University in ISIL-Seized Ramadi

    Iraqi security forces took control over the University of Anbar in the city of Ramadi in central Iraq that was previously occupied by ISIL militants.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Iraqi security forces on Sunday recaptured the University of Anbar in the city of Ramadi in central Iraq from the Islamic State (ISIL) jihadist group, the country’s’ military command said.

    Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, fell to the ISIL in May. The insurgents used the complex of the University as an command base.

    "We announce to you the entry of the counter-terrorism forces into the University of Anbar. They are now engaging in battles to clean it up from the remaining terrorists and dismantling bombs and clearing roads," the statement reads.

    According to the document, the Iraqi forces will continue to advance toward the nearby district of Tamim.

    On July 13, the Iraqi government initiated a military operation to liberate Ramadi and Fallujah, the largest cities in the Anbar province, from the ISIL.

    The Islamic State took control of large areas of Iraq and Syria in 2014. ISIL-affiliated groups have conducted attacks in Libya, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and other countries in the region over the past months.

    Over 100 Yazidis Flee Iraq Daily Fleeing From Islamic State

    Yazidis, a Kurdish religious community, are leaving Iraq in an attempt to save themselves from the advancing troops of the Islamic State, according to an official within an organization which aids the Yazidi community.

    MOSCOW, August 4 (Sputnik) — At least 100 members of the Iraqi Yazidi minority flee the country every day to protect themselves and their families from Islamic State (ISIL) militants, an official in an organization that helps abducted Yazidis has estimated, as quoted by the local IraqiNews portal on Tuesday.

    "More than 100 Yazidis are heading outside the country every day," Hussein Qaiada said.

    He added that at the moment there were at least 300 Yazidis, mostly women and children, still being held by ISIL militants, who "expose them to various types of abuse and torture."

    The Yazidis are a Kurdish religious community living primary in northern Iraq's Nineveh Governorate.

    In late April, lawmakers in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe called the ISIL actions against the Yazidi population, as well as against Shiite and Christian minorities, genocide.

    Islamic State controls large parts of Iraq and Syria, and is notorious for committing numerous human rights atrocities and killings.

    Stills from the video terrorists LIH knocked Abrams. Judging by the personnel had to enter into a frontal projection. As a result of the ignition of the powder charge ammunition. It can be assumed that even after experiencing the frontal armor "Abrams" zabronevoe action remains strong, allowing striking armor located behind the broken wall in the aft turret ammunition.

    Haider Abadi made a gaffe and said 2300 humvees instead of 230 humvees in an English language interview. Media has run with it.

    It's not.true. They did lose hundreds of humvees. But they didn't lose a third of their operational humvees!! Even if isis captured and destroyed every single humvee in northern Iraq (which they didn't) it would be about 1000 humvees.... Vast majority of which were not captured by ISIS but successfully withdrew to Baghdad and Kurdistan.

    I believe the number of humvees captured was nearer 300-400... In total across operational commands. But who cares really? These are just some 4x4s and not apc or mbt or something particularly lethal! They also captured about 70 m113 apc armed with a 12.7mm....  Once again reported in the media as some huge arsenal!

    Isis captured less than a dozen artillery pieces and maybe a dozen old tanks (type 69) .... They captured no Sam or operational Abrams tanks or any radars or helicopters or aircraft.... Once they managed to capture 5x anti-tank missile rounds and a single launcher! They did catch a couplenof non operational btr4 that were recaptured by Iraqis later.

    The whole "isis iraqi arsenal " thing was overblown... They used most of the humvees as suicide vehicles. And when they ran out of them they used uparmoured trucks and bulldozers as suicide vehicles... Which they get easily from Saudi and Turkey.


    The biggest most dangerous thing that fell to isis was the mishraq sulphur factory that was upgraded and expanded by a us contractor in 2013-2014 which now produces their war materials for rockets and vbied.... Ironically I have never seen anyone talk about that!!!

    "Pentagon claims that Iraq has launched first F-16 airstrikes against ISIL.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Iraq has put the F-16 warplanes acquired from the United States into action against the ISIL extremist militant group for the first time, c spokesman Peter Cook told reporters.

    "We commend the Iraqi Air Force for its successful use of this cutting edge aircraft in the international campaign to degrade and ultimately defeat Isil (IS),” Cook said Sunday."

    Somehow that seems to have been missed off the US/NATO target list.

    No doubt to preserve it till after IS is gone, but if they did hit it that US contractor could repair it again thereby achieving two objectives in one go, degrade IS and increase US company profits. No brainer guys, in case you are reading this Smile

    Not much real damage, but with a luckier hit/location it could certainly be alot worse.
    No matter what, that has to mean more low-level repair works, so I don't get why they don't have anti-RPG cage on all units?

    Well US ones are basically same in that terms, from what i am aware only M1A2 SEP Tusk is somewhat different due to Tusk II applicable reactive armor http://modelkitsreview.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/tamiya-M1A2-SEP-Abrams-TUSK-II-6.jpg rest are just like in that shot of yours at least in terms of side turret armor. When its about "cage" as you call it, i belive only Stykers have been extensively equiped with it http://defense-update.com/images/samara-stryker.jpg somewhat of "pro" term would be "slat armor". Ah and yes, M1A2 Tusk has additional slat armor on its engine: https://2img.net/h/i628.photobucket.com/albums/uu9/1SGDavis/Img1113.jpg?t=1238039649.

    When its about your question why Iraqis do not apply their own homemade slat armor, i dont really know, maybe they did have some line in contract where they are not allowed to do any changes on the tanks? Maybe they didnt think of that O.o?

    At Least 13 Killed in Suicide Bombings in Iraqi Capital Baghdad

    No group has claimed responsibility for two suicide bombings that shook the Iraqi capital on Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At least 13 people have been killed and 69 injured after two suicide bombings shook the center of the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Thursday, local media reported, citing an anonymous source in law enforcement.

    "As a result of an explosion carried out by a suicide bomber at Al Wathba Square five people were killed and 29 injured, among them are four representatives of the traffic police," a police source told Sumaria TV channel.

    Another Thursday suicide bombing in the square of Bab Al Sharji in downtown Baghdad killed eight people. Some 40 people, including police officers, were wounded in the explosion.

    A US-led coalition of over 60 nations managed to stop the offensive of Islamic State (ISIL) militants in Syria and Iraq, the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director said Sunday.

    According to other media reports, at least 14 people have been killed in the two Thursday attacks, including a police officer.

    No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks.

    Large areas of Iraq and neighboring Syria have been occupied by the Islamic State militant group, which has proclaimed a caliphate on the land under its control.

    ISIL is an extremist Sunni militant group, and denounces the Shia Muslims who make up almost 70 percent of the Iraqi population as infidels. ISIL has carried out numerous terror attacks and committed many human rights atrocities in the country.
