IRAQI FORCES TAKE BACK RAMADI


More on the “situation” in part of the Middle East!

ISIS IS NO LONGER IN CONTROL OF TIKRIT, SINJAR AND RAMADI. ISIS IS NO LONGER IN CONTROL OF TIKRIT, SINJAR AND RAMADI.

For a review, Iraqi forces have taken back several cites from ISIS including, Tikrit in April 2015; Sinjar in November 2015; and now Ramadi in December 2015. Since August, 2015, they are still in a battle over Fallujah with ISIS. And then they plan to overtake Mosul which has been under ISIS control since June, 2014.

The territories of Tikrit and Fallujah are populated with mostly Sunnis Muslims while the Iraqi military is comprised of mostly Shia Muslims, reflecting the majority population in Iraq. Sinjar was populated by the large minority group pf Yazadis, many who were killed and the women kidnapped, allotted and sold for sexual enslavement.

With the recapture of Ramadi from ISIS dominion, steps have been taken to insure that the Iraqi Shia militia did not instigate retaliatory measures against the Sunnis peoples as is alleged to have occurred in Tikrit.

My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
