    Along the way, the Americans stirred, afraid that the laurels of victory over ISIS would go to Russia alone, or Iraq itself perked up after the blows of the Russian air forces

      in Iraq, but they cannot take it by storm.

    On the weekend, due to bad weather, I watched a bunch of current TV shows on TV.
    And this phrase from the article pleased.
    Fighters of the Shiite militia, Sunni tribes and the Iraqi army took part in the operation to liberate the palace. Militants suffered serious losses.

    For one of the "comrades" from the Syrian opposition stubbornly argued that there is a war in Syria between Sunnis and Shiites. not a war against terrorists, but a war between the two branches of Islam. The situation is similar in Iraq. Therefore, the unification of Sunnis and Shiites in the fight against the common evil of terrorism cannot but rejoice. Although this is probably just the beginning.

    This is otvetka for Ukraine, but there will be a continuation Iraq is very much asking for support from the air, as well as, like Afghanistan, the sale of our equipment to which we are obviously accustomed and will not be thrown away as unnecessary trash. Afghanistan, as always, asks for our not new equipment t 55 and t64. And unforgettable Iran.
