With Iraq on the Brink, a New Sunni Insurgency Emerges || by Jonathan Spyer


20 Years Middle East Forum

Largely ignored by the global media, Iraq today stands on the brink of a renewed Sunni insurgency. The emergent insurgency in Iraq is following the same sectarian pattern as the civil war in Syria and the growing violence in Lebanon. It also involves many of the same local and regional players.

The rising violence in Iraq is not, however, simply the result of a spillover from the Syrian war. It derives also from internal Iraqi dynamics. But these are themselves in significant ways comparable to the Syrian and Lebanese situations.

Over 9000 people were killed in fighting in Iraq in 2013. This is not yet up to the levels of violence just prior to the surge, in the very worst days of the insurgency against U.S. forces and the sectarian bloodletting that accompanied it. But it’s the highest since 2007. This year, more than 2000 people have already lost their lives as a result of political violence in Iraq.

As of today, a coalition of Sunni insurgent groups control the city of Fallujah in Iraq’s Anbar province west of Baghdad. The city of Ramadi remains partially in insurgent hands, though its southern districts have been re-conquered by government forces in recent days.

Nor is the violence confined to Anbar province. Rather, car bombings have become a near daily occurrence in Baghdad, and insurgent activity against Iraqi security forces and non-Sunni civilians is taking place in Nineveh, Mosul, Kirkuk and elsewhere in areas of high Sunni Arab population.

So who are these insurgents, and why have events in Iraq reached this crisis point?

Why should Sunni need Saudi & Qatar support to bomb Shiite? You must be kidding? They can do without it. URINE al-Maliki’s Iranian-Bitch-State Dream shattered and turned to nightmare; he’s devastated as Sunni bomb Shiite Shrines & Marketplace. URINE al-Maliki ain’t stopping Sunni bombing Shiite even if he doled the whole Iraqi OIL revenue to ‘em. Sunni enjoy bombing Shiite is utopia and status quo in Iranian-Bitch- States alas former Iraq. Its fun, power and control. Sunni are now targeting Sunni traitors who joined URINE al-Maliki as well as Iranian Pilgrims. Saudi and Qatar Joint-Venture ain’t an option no mo in fact it’s an interest to keep away Sunni bombing GCC Shiite within.GCC is charming death they’re sitting ducks. Courting Kerry every now and on surrounded by cheaply overdressed hypocrite nutjobs and guarded by police ain’t impress Sunni bombers to stay put.

They’re deranged Khomeini Zombies carrying out 1432 years old failing Iranian agenda: ‘dead Arab’ is a ‘good Arab’ good work. Every Sunni dies farting while sleep, ten Shiite bombed in Karbala, Najaf, Samara, Beirut, Damascus, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and Iran, whatever. Keep up w’ Good work girls.
