Iraq the point of the situation

The Sunni jihadists of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) are quickly becoming more and more strong, amassing weapons, fighters and funds in their offensive in Iraq.

According to the U.S. official, the Isil would count some 10,000 fighters, of which between 3,000 and 5,000 foreign nationals, but you would be strengthened thanks to alliances with Sunni communities adverse Iraqi Shiite Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Isis and Nusra Front have reached a temporary agreement to fight the Iraqi and Syrian loyalists near the border.

After a year of open rivalry, the Syrian wing of al Qaeda militants and al-Qaeda of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have decided to join, at least temporarily, in a town near the Syrian-Iraqi border.

Both at the Nusra Front Isis express an ideology of Al Qaeda but for months the two groups have been fighting each other, with the first ones that have repeatedly accused the latter made ​​to serve the interests of the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad. "The fall of Mosul (in the hands of the militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ed) and 'the quintessence of the failure of the Turkish foreign policy over the last four years," Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki rejects the idea to create a national unity government, as required by the United States and the most important Iraqi Shiite authority, Ayatollah Ali Sistani.

Iran sends drones and military supplies Iran is conducting reconnaissance flights in Iraqi territory and with the use of surveillance drones and tons of equipment and is providing military assistance to Iraq, where Tehran has also sent a unit 'special intercept telecommunications and provide intelligence information to the authorities' Iraqi.

A series of air raids conducted by aviation Syria in various areas of the Iraqi province of Al Anbar, where in recent days have swept the jihadi militia.

Basically the delettantio U.S. strategists had expected an extended area geograicia divided into many areas that comprised part of Syria, Turkey and Iran in order to make the whole area under control and weak in truth 'cards are blowing and there is a serious risk of finding themselves in a Shiite state and that will produce strong Islamic 'terrorism and many other serious consequences. In this endless war, the Sunnis, or followers of the Sunnah (the practice), are the current and the Orthodox majority.

While the Shia (whose name comes from the abbreviated "faction of Ali") are much lower in number: the number of Muslims did percent, the proportion is at least seventy-thirty in favor of the Sunnis.

  The division originated after the death of Muhammad in 632 AD, when the faithful fought the political and religious heritage of Abu Bakr, father and friend of the wife of Muhammad, and Ali, cousin and son in law of the Prophet. A mismatch that would never completely dormant, or in the theological or political. Devoted to the tradition, according to the Sunni heritage and guidance of Islam belong to those who follow the teachings of Muhammad, no special ties of blood.

  In contrast, the Shiites have long felt that the successor of Muhammad were to be necessarily a blood relative of the Prophet. In Iran, Shiism is the power and supports the Syrian regime with men and equipment.

Qatar and Saudi Arabia are, however, the Sunni countries that finance more the "Thirty Years War".
