Progress in Iraq

ALQOSH, Iraq — Seizing on the momentum of focused American airstrikes in recent days, Kurdish forces moved to retake the strategic Mosul Dam on Sunday night, in their most significant challenge yet to the Sunni militants’ advance in northern Iraq.

The American assaults hit 10 armed vehicles, seven Humvees, two armored personnel carriers and one checkpoint belonging to fighters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the United States Central Command said Sunday.

In the past two days, United States forces have conducted 30 airstrikes across Iraq, officials said, with many of them focused around the dam, which militants captured after routing the Kurdish forces 10 days ago. A statement from the National Security Council in Washington on Sunday said that the bombings were ordered by President Obama to help the Iraqi forces “retake and establish control over the Mosul Dam.”

Mr. Obama, the statement added, also officially informed Congress that he had authorized the American airstrikes in Iraq, consistent with the War Powers Resolution.

As of late Sunday, Kurdish government officials said fighting around the dam complex, Iraq’s largest, was continuing, despite early reports that the site had been retaken.

“We do not control the entire dam yet,” said Fuad Hussein, a spokesman for Massoud Barzani, the Iraqi Kurdish president, in a televised statement.

The air campaign has seemed to check the militants’ move against the semiautonomous Kurdish region, an offensive that sent tens of thousands of refugees fleeing and at one point threatened the Kurdish capital, Erbil.

By hammering the militants with warplanes and drones, the Americans have severely curtailed the freedom of movement enjoyed by the ISIS fighters.

It remains to be seen how the Kurdish forces, known as the pesh merga, may fare if the air support is halted, despite Mr. Obama’s suggestion that it could last for months. Having lost significant ground during the ISIS fighters’ sudden advance this month, Kurdish forces have shown that they may not be able to go it alone. The forces pushing into the Mosul Dam area are believed to include the Iraqi Special Forces, making the operation a hybrid of American, Kurdish and Iraqi commands.

Kurdish officials acknowledge that the airstrikes have been vital to recent success in halting the militants’ onslaught. For their part, pesh merga officials have complained bitterly about inferior arms compared with those used by the militants, who have claimed powerful American munitions abandoned on the battlefield by the Iraqi military.

“The aircrafts have handicapped the ISIS forces — they cannot move easily,” said Hariam Agha, a local commander of the Kurdish forces in Dohuk.“They killed a lot of their fighters.”

Since Saturday, 13 militants have been killed in airstrikes and 46 have been wounded, medical officials in the area said.

According to Kurdish officials, ISIS fighters now appear to be falling back on several fronts, as pesh merga forces approach both the dam and the city of Mosul, which is the capital of Nineveh Province. In their wake, they have left mines to slow the progress of Kurdish and Iraqi government forces following in their tracks. The Kurdish advance appeared to have been halted on Sunday afternoon, as local fighters and officials said they were awaiting sapper teams to clear the way to the dam.

But atheists, especially the ones posting here, seem to be obsessed with Christianity.
Amazing!

Imagine - atheists posting to other atheists in atheist forums!

What a radical concept! <unmasked sarcasm>

Only obsessed christians bother to attend atheist forums. To what purpose does this serve?

Is it idle curiosity about atheism or a method to attack those who do not share your faith?

I do enjoy true Christians and their mythology.

As the West ramped up its sanctions against the Russian Federation, on Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin convened a high-level meeting of his imaginary friends to craft a response.

Putin spent over six hours consulting with his inner circle of imaginary friends, whom he refers to as the League of Superior Beings.

Attending the meeting were Igor, a powerful brute who can deflect missiles with his bare fists; Dr. Karamazov, who can control the world’s weather; and Ludmila, a sorceress whose powers include the ability to bend time and transform herself into a number of animals and insects.

According to sources, Putin and his imaginary friends are weighing a broad array of options, including covering Europe in icicles and sending U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to another dimension.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says,'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another."

My good Atheist friend, I know that you haven’t read or studied the Bible. The reason I know this is because of your responses, your inability to answer biblical questions and or any question for that matter. You’re a cut & paste Atheist and clueless when it comes to the Bible.

Don’t feel bad because your are in the same boat as the rest of your topix Compadres. We understand this narcissistic mentality of yours. It’s like all of you were manufactured at the same assembly line right down to the same serial number.

You need to understand that these radical Muslims have absolutely no use for Atheist. Instead of cutting your head off with a sharp knife like they do on the Christians. They’ll use a dull one on you so they have to hack and saw through your neck. You don’t have any favor with the Muslim world, none.

At least in Israel you have the freedom to believe how you wish as long as you are a peaceful law abiding member of society. You don’t have that freedom in a Muslim extremist society.

Israel is stealing land ( settlements ) again and a again ....this , is a religious war ..

Israel took land in the 1967 war and that’s tuff sh** for those who lost it. That’s what they get for attacking Israel. That’s the risk you take when you attack another nation.

My good neighbors in Mexico lost the entire land mass of what is now called the State of Texas as a result of a war. Mexico was a super power in the early 1800’s. It had a modern well trained army. They won every conflict in Texas including the decimation of the defenders of the Alamo. But the dictator Santa Anna made a blunder and lost a battle at San Jacinto. He lost the entire State of what is now called Texas. That’s the way it goes in love and war.

Israel doesn’t steal land. They take land away from their enemies after their enemies attack them. You would think every time you pick a fight with your neighbor and he thoroughly kicks the ever loving sh** out of you and takes property away. That you would get smart and leave him alone. Those terrorist attacking Israel haven’t had their a** kicked enough times.

Atheists don't really care if you defend your mythology. We understand the struggle within your own mind, hopelessly attempting to provide a rational thought, about your faith.

No I post fact, if you took the time to study of the origin of religions you would discover the same things that we already know!

So not only are you calling the US a terrorist nation:
the CIA is dictatorial
the US military is fascist
US taxpayers fund “Israeli terrorism”
You are also calling the majority of Americans stupid:
70% are raving godbots of little intelligence
even fewer rednecks of even less intelligence
And you're making up lies about me personally:
You may have multiple socks
You ... the pinnacle of redneck social networking
dragging their couch
TV
6 pack of cheap bear the front lawn
or better still getting there slave wife to do it
so it’s easier to yell at their neighbours
You got problems, Chrissy.
Once again, I repeat for the hard of understanding... I have never called the US a terrorist’s nation and you WILL NEVER be able to justify such a LIE and to keep ranting that lie despite the complete lack of evidence shows a pretty powerful personality flaw that is on a par with butt cracks. But since when has justifying lies ever been an issue for godbots like you who twists and squirms and abuses and misrepresent other peoples words just to pleasure yourself in the name of your god?

This is an assumption on my part but an assumption that you have never denied despite being asked several times so let me ask, do you consider the US funding of NORAID implied that the US was/is a terrorist nation? Perhaps terrorism never existed for you until after 2001 when the US underwent a major strep change in both government policy and the public understand of terrorism. It is still a fact however that the US still funds NORAID from public donation and Israel from US tax dollars. And it is still la fact that Israel has deliberately targeted schools, hospitals and UN aid shelters with US supplied weapons... i.e. terrorism

Yes I am calling the majority of Americans raving godbots of little intelligence. You are a member of that club, live with it. Remember though, that is not all Americans, just the goddunitwiv magic brigade so don’t go twisting that statement as well.

Honey, you and I have been in discussion, argument, disagreement on and off for more than three years, I base my opinion of you on those discussions, as to whether your topix personality actually reflects your true life personality I really only know (or care). For all I know you may well be the most intelligent, honest, moral and understanding citizen on your side of the Atlantic. But that’s not how you portray yourself on this forum.

It is fact that you have had 3 socks (that I know of) RR, proxy queen and your current fictional ego booster during that time (3 is a multiple)

Pretty poor cherry picking there... but even so you should not let your egotestical (correct spelling and are you sure you are not buck?) mindset get the better of you. I was not being personally insulting to you but to rednecks in general

My exact words were “You really are letting your side down by appearing on topix when the pinnacle of redneck social networking is dragging their couch, TV and a 6 pack of cheap bear the front lawn (or better still getting there slave wife to do it) so it’s easier to yell at their neighbours.”

You have, while wearing an older sock admitted to being a redneck (and proud of it) and such behaviour is stereotypical of a redneck but I suppose it can be kind of difficult lugging the couch down from the 12th floor of a project bock right onto the main street.

Your support for jihadist terrorism is consistent.
The only shoe to drop is you accusing the jihadists of being Christians.
I am not...

They did...

And you still have not provided any evidence of Hamas forcing children into schools to be used as targets. Or hospitals or UN aid shelters for that matter. And while you are stomping your foot minus any evidence I see you as the liar, but you are known for lying so it’s nothing new.

My dislike of Israeli terrorism is just as strong as my dislike for all terrorism. Even if some died in the wool atheist bombed your prison and killed all the butt crack type gobots in there I would still object to it.

But butt crack is incapable of seeing that because he condones Israeli terrorism and cannot rationalise that, he is clueless to the fact that the sort of terrorism he approves of is still terrorism
