GREAT news: Arab Spring comes to Iraq at last!

Don’t know why the liberal media aren’t reporting it in those terms; it’s the same murderous Muslim-fascist fanatics they’ve been rooting for in Egypt, Syria, Libya, and everywhere else right along.

Al Qaeda-inspired militants in Iraq vowed Thursday to march against Baghdad after seizing two key cities in the north of the country this week.

A spokesman for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) — said in audio posted on militant websites commonly used by the group that the fighters have old scores to settle with Iraq’s Shiite-led government.

The militants have gained entry to the Turkish Consulate in Mosul and are holding captive 48 people, including diplomats, police, consulate employees and three children, according to an official in the office of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Turkish officials believe the hostages are safe, the source said Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment to reporters on the sensitive issue.

On Wednesday, militants also took Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit, as soldiers and security forces abandoned their posts and yielded ground once controlled by U.S. forces.

If by “militants” they mean “mainstream,” then the reportage is getting it exactly right. Of course, and as usual.

  1. Butbutbut, Iraq was one of many Obama foreign policy success stories…oh wait, it’s another clusterfuck. I see in this article that they’ve captured 400,000 various weapons. I say good, let’s make sure they have lots of bullets. Maybe the contemplated air strikes should drop in the ammo?

    Carry on.

  2. Disgracing our vets in every way possible. Like Kerry, like Bill Ayres, like Obama to emphasize their sacrifice was a waste. I am so ashamed of my country Mooch.
