chattels   ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The Iraqi Ministry of Defense announced the start of the fourth phase of its “Will of Victory” campaign to defeat Islamic State (ISIS) militants in the country’s western deserts on Saturday.

The Iraqi Security Media Cell said the latest phase of the operation will clear ISIS’ presence in the Anbar province.

“The aim of the operation is to clean the desert of Anbar from Islamic State (ISIS) sleeper cells,” the Iraqi Security Media Cell said in a statement on Saturday.

chattels   Anbar is dominated by desert and is the largest by area of Iraq's nineteen provinces; it can be divided into a sparsely populated west bordering Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia, and a more densely populated east on the outskirts of Baghdad.

chattels   A large majority of the inhabitants of the province are Sunni Muslims and most belong to the Dulaim tribe, all of which speak Arabic.

JoeSchmoe   chattels what are your feelings about all the articles and talk lately about them raising the value againt the dollar?

chattels   The Anbar desert is about the size of the State of North Carolina.

chattels   JoeSchmoe Three words come to mind. Yada, Yada, Yada.

JoeSchmoe   chattels what I mean is, do you feel there is a different meaning/translation than what we all hope, or are you feeling 'we have been here many timees before"

chattels   JoeSchmoe But, I have always declared myself to be a a macroeconomic moron.

chattels   Kirk H. Sowell @UticaRisk

There is a clear consensus among Iraq's senior politicos - the PM, President, Speaker - on keeping Iraq out of a proxy war, but frankly the Iraqi state is too weak to impose its own neutrality if other parties insist on making Iraq a battleground. https://twitter.com/UticaRisk
