chattels: " There has apparently been little US assistance given to the volunteer militias fighting on Fallujah's northern front over the past few days; the militias broke their promise to stay on the city's outskirts."
chattels: It is clear to most observers and to Iraqis that this fight will be far from easy.
chattels: “This battle will involve three stages,” Kathem al-Khazraji, an Iraqi army colonel, told NIQASH. “The first is to control the outskirts of the city, the second involves catching the IS fighters inside the central city and the third is to begin attacking the extremists. This battle may take some time but if the US continues to provide us with air cover, we will win.”
chattels: There are still an estimated 50,000 civilians – possibly more - trapped inside Fallujah, once a city of around 350,000. In a telephone interview, a resident in the Shuhada area, in the south of the city, told NIQASH that everyone here knows they are not allowed to leave the city.
chattels: As the fighting continues and the Iraqi forces seem to be winning, one can only hope that those involved will take heed of the words of Iraq’s most senior Shiite cleric, Ali al-Sistani, who preached that security forces should protect civilians at Friday prayers last week: “Saving innocent people from harm’s way is the most important thing, even more so than targeting the enemy,” the cleric said.

chattels: Sadr’s plan completely backfired, but it didn’t appear he had a follow up strategy.
chattels: Parliament is no closer to coming together and moving on Abadi’s reforms that Sadr has been demanding. In fact, the marches and continued moves into the Green Zone are perpetuating the current crisis.
chattels: Sadr has always aspired to be the dominant figure in Iraqi politics. His problem is that he never appears to think long term. The on going protests are a perfect example. He succeeded in taking over the Baghdad protests and the Green Zone, but there is nothing else to his strategy. Iraqi politics has been effectively blown up by Sadr’s actions, and he has no solutions to what he’s created other than to continue on his path.
