Fear and unrest sweep across Iraq as Sunni terrorists set their sights on the country’s capital – Baghdad.

“What they are trying to do is have a continuity between Iraq and Syria,” Director of the Middle East Centre Fawaz Gerges explained.

“In order to establish a caliphate, a centralized state governed by Islamic law.”

ISIS – or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – is blazing a path of bloodshed throughout the predominately Shiite country. Scores of volunteer fighters have rallied; desperate to stop the terrorist takeover.

Iraq’s Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, has encouraged the entourage.

“They believed this was the beginning of the end, but we say this is beginning of their end, their defeat,” he said in a televised address.

The Iraqi enemy has already captured the second-largest city, Mosul, and shows no signs of slowing its efforts.

Meanwhile, President Obama said the U.S.  is weighing its options to include possible air-strikes. What’s not in the plan? Sending troops into battle.

“People should remember it was a Sunni group that hated us, hated the west, that attacked us on 9/11, that still hates us and carries these black flags of hatred and that, I think, poses a real threat to the United States,” retired Gen. Wesley Clark said.

A serious situation that could pose a serious danger back home.
