Iraqi army prepares to storm militant-held Falluja

Comments (5)

Sounds like the first defeat for the Iraqi Army is upcoming. They may force the bad-guys to move, but a significant body count remains to be seen.

Fallujah is Iraq’s “Alamo.”

If the Iraqi Army doesn’t win and is severely beaten, bye-bye Shi’ia Iraq as we know it. There will be three states: Kurdistan, Sunni Iraq–capital Baghdad or Falluja), and Shi’ite Iraq (capital Basra) as was in the Ottoman Empire. OR, an invasion by Iran which I doubt but in the Middle East anything is possible.
