Iraq faces take-over by Iran-backed militias if Islamic State is defeated, coalition commanders fear

Coalition commanders in Iraq fear that Iran-backed Shia militias may stage an armed takeover of the country if Isil is defeated, a new report has warned.

Senior figures in the US-led mission believe there is a high likelihood of a “war after the war” because of the Iraqi government’s reliance on Shia militias in its fight against Isil.

The move has hugely boosted the strength of such militias, to the point where they are now in a position to challenge the elected government for control of the country.

    Churchill, Napoleon or Ceasar would turn IS into hamburger then use tactical nukes to take out any serious Iranian military capability, then of course turn what’s left of the iranian military into hamburger. Meanwhile coalition commanders are worried that female officers are being addressed with ‘Yes Sir’.

    Imagine my surprise.

    Support the Kurds, let the Sunni terrorists take on the Shi’ite terrorists and fight to the last man.

    This could be good, because it will put arch rivals Saudi and Iran right on each others borders. Then they will both be in a better position to face off for Armageddon.
