A horrific leaked video shows an 11-year-old boy in handcuffs who was beaten up by a group of Iranian-backed Iraqi fighters, then executed in cold blood with showers of bullets to the head.
Shoebat What Barack Hussein Obama did when he pulled U.S. troops out of Iraq was to replace them with militias, a plethora of new and old pro-Iranian Shiite militias that are dominating the battlefields in Iraq and Syria which raises concerns about the growing Iranian influence. These are Iran-backed groups who are providing most of the “boots on the ground” that are pushing back ISIS forces from key areas near Baghdad, including Diyala province.
The overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s Ba’athist government resulted in the emergence of a Shia dominated government in Baghdad replacing it with an Iraqi Shiite government friendly to Tehran. This eliminated what had been an existential threat to the Islamic Republic of Iran and had tipped the local balance of power significantly in Tehran’s favor. And once Iran cleans the ISIS mess in Iraq, Iran will be happy, the U.S. will be happy, while all we have done is chase out ISIS while Iran’s Shiite militias can already be seen running amok in Iraq.
