Afp, Baghdad
Iraqi forces closed in on Ramadi yesterday and launched an operation aimed at cutting off the jihadists in Anbar province before a major offensive to retake the city.

Ten days after the Islamic State group's shock capture of the capital of Iraq's largest province, a spokesman said the latest operation was only a preparatory move before an assault on Ramadi.

The operation will see a mix of security forces and paramilitaries move south towards the city from Salaheddin province, said Hashed al-Shaabi spokesman Ahmed al-Assadi.

The Hashed al-Shaabi ("popular mobilisation" in Arabic) is an umbrella group for mostly Shia militia and volunteers, which the government called in after the Islamic State group captured Ramadi on May 17.

He said it had been dubbed "Operation Labaik ya Hussein", which roughly translates as "We are at your service, Hussein" and refers to one of the most revered imams in Shia Islam. The Hashed said 4,000 men were heading to the northern edge of Ramadi.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and his US allies had been reluctant to deploy Iran-backed Shia militia in Anbar, a predominantly Sunni province.

Meanwhile, Washington on Monday moved to appease Baghdad after Iraq's leadership reacted angrily to comments by the Pentagon chief accusing Iraqi forces of "lacking the will to fight".

Ashton Carter's remarks to the CNN news channel were widely perceived as unfair in Iraq, where some forces have put up valiant resistance to IS assaults.

In a call to Abadi, the White House quoted Vice President Joe Biden as saying he "recognised the enormous sacrifice and bravery of Iraqi forces over the past 18 months in Ramadi and elsewhere.

Iraq's tale of heroism
By WAQAR RIZVI

A nation under attack by outsiders out to destroy the state and defame the faith of the majority rises up in an act of defense at the call-to-arms issued by a religious scholar.

Minorities, both ethnic and of other faiths and sects, increasingly join the ranks of these volunteer fighters, whose goal is to support the country’s armed forces in bringing back peace and stability for all citizens. Instead of supporting the effort to rid itself of an imposed and brutal enemy, the world scolds the nation’s volunteer forces for apparently increasing tensions and divisions within the country, saying that it is because of them that these outsiders are able to garner enough support to carry out their atrocities.

The religious scholar at the centre of the call-to-arms speaks out against and demands harsh punishment of those who stray from what is, in his opinion, a religious duty to rid the nation of its peoples’ enemies. The world jumps on these slip-ups, using them as the perfect cover of what they see as a need to divide the country. A long-standing proposal to divide-and-rule the nation by yesterday’s occupiers comes to the fore. The nation is at a crossroads. Does it let outsiders dictate its future, or does it stand strong, close ranks and fight in an effort to usher in a better and united future for its future generations?

This is the story of #Iraq you have not often heard, or cared to hear. Iraq’s heroes, fighting to save their country, are seen as anything but by a world which instead sees the foot-soldiers of yesterday’s occupier, regardless of their infinite known and unknown crimes in this foreign land, as the true heroes. This is the twilight zone where two parallel realities can apparently exist at once, while only one is actually real.

From the moment Donald Rumsfeld’s misplaced fantasy of Iraqis greeting his country’s forces as ‘liberators’ failed to come true, the narrative about Iraq has been one limited to sectarianism and division.

That yesterday’s suppressed majority #Shia population would naturally come to power in a democracy was twisted into a biased argument that the Shias are retaliating against the #Sunni and other minorities, regardless of how rare any such incidents were.

Iraq’s division has been the dream of many, including the current US Vice President Joe Biden, who advocated for separate states within Iraq as far back as 2006, and the US Congress, which has proposed a defense bill that would treat Sunni and Kurdish forces as separate ‘countries’ with rights to receive individual US assistance.

Regional dictator-monarchs’ legitimacy within their own borders is based on proving that Iraq since Saddam cannot stand up for itself as a strong nation. Without the presence of a weak Iraqi democracy, the sheikhdoms of the region can foresee their palaces crumbling before their eyes, as their people, at some point, realize that they too can stand up without the need of their puppet sell-out leaders. 

The easiest road to ensuring a division in the hearts and minds of Iraqis is to resort to the Iran boogeyman. Within this umbrella, it is Iran’s ‘militias’ whom are running wild in Iraq and Iran wants to even set-up its own state within Iraq. It sounds and reads like nothing less than a well-thought-out and creative novel.

Ayatollah #Sistani , the highest level religious scholar in Iraq, who had issued the call-to-arms for volunteers to fight against the imposed Daesh cancer, has made it clear that this was and is all for the preservation of Iraq. While Iran has provided help to Iraq, this does not mean that Iraqi sovereignty has been handed over to it. To have expected Iran not to get involved in the Daesh crisis in Iraq would be foolhardy, as with the shared border, Iran needs a stable and strong Iraq to ensure its own security.

Ayatollah Sistani has said of Iraqi independence, through his spokesman, ‘We are proud of our country and our identity and our independence and sovereignty. While we welcome any help offered today from our brothers and friends in our fight against the terrorists and thank them for that, this doesn’t mean in any way that we would ignore our identity and independence.’ Neither Ayatollah Khamenei nor anyone else in the Iranian establishment has ever argued against that, as Iraqi independence is indeed vital.

There has been an effort to show Iraq and Iran’s scholars as being on two opposing plains of thought, and yet while there are some differences the cooperation between the two countries’ governments and scholars prove otherwise. If anything, the fight against Daesh has brought the two countries governments and scholars closer. Iran was the first to help Iraq against Daesh, there are regular meetings of Iranian officials with Ayatollah Sistani, and vice versa with the latter’s representatives’ meetings with Ayatollah Khamenei. The presumption of a divide between the two countries scholars and governments has been a miscalculation.

As hard as it may be for those within and outside the region who have invested much in ensuring the division of Iraqis to accept, Ayatollah Sistani’s stances have assured unity, if followed. He has not only spoken out strongly against and demanded accountability in any proven cases of errors by volunteer forces, or even the government’s official forces, but has issued guidelines for fighters on the battlefield. A small excerpt of this guideline reads, ‘Do not indulge in acts of extremism, do not disrespect dead corpses, do not resort to deceit, do not kill an elder, do not kill a child, do not kill a woman, and do no not cut down trees unless necessity dictates otherwise.’

From the very beginning, the power of scholars in Iraq, such as Ayatollah Sistani, has been grossly underestimated by both occupying forces, as well as regional dictator-monarchs. Scholars have demanded that theirs be an independent country free of occupation and corruption, and one based on transparency, accountability, and justice for all Iraqis, regardless of faith, ethnicity, and tribal affiliation.

For all the hype about Iran taking over and lessening Iraqi sovereignty in this fight, statements of volunteer forces are telling. Hadi al-Ameri, the head of the Badr Organisation, confirmed that the Iraqi state has the final say over Popular Mobilisation Units (PMUs). He told al-Sumaria TV that, ‘After Sayyed Sistani’s fatwa, we were left with no choice but to take up arms and fight. These are, however, the state’s arms. The Badr Organization doesn’t possess any weapons.’ Also, Qais al-Khazali, leader of Asaib Ahl al-Haq echoed the above in an interview with the al-Ahd television channel by saying that PMUs were ‘national factions for sure...part of the Iraqi state institutions, and committed to the decisions of the commander-in-chief [the Iraqi prime minister]’.

As with any reporting on the Middle East, Iraq too has been the victim of a stolen narrative. It is time for Iraqis to demand and be given back control of this narrative. While ensuring the defeat of imposed enemies bent on destroying their country, Iraqis must ensure this fight is done in the right way, while preserving their independence from all. Let this essential fight against Daesh be the start of a better future for all the peoples, tribes, ethnicities, and minorities of a united, strong, and independent Iraq.

Joe Biden Says Bible Believing Christians Violate LGBT Rights By Simply Existing - nowtheendbegins

Vice President Joe Biden say today that the rights of the LGBT people are violated by "religious condemnation". He is directly referring to Bible verses like the one posted at the top of this article. The Progressive Liberals are well aware that it is God, speaking by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, that condemns homosexuality in all it's many forms.

According to Joe Biden, the American Bible believing Christian who takes the Bible literally, is violating the "rights" of the LGBT by trusting in God's word. And this is why old-fashioned preaching will soon be classified as a "hate crime". Because Liberals can't stand it. Biden is also saying that the rights of the Christian are inferior to the rights of the LGBT individual. (Read more here: http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/blog/?p=33175)

This is fundamentally what it comes down to:

The candidates are incoherent and their strategies are implausible because they are seeking the support of an electorate with incoherent demands, who demand victory, if they think about victory at all, at an implausible price. Haider al-Abadi may go looking for insight in Foreign Policy, but he should re-up his subscription to Sotheby’s International Realty, too, if he does not already have a retirement chalet secured. No sane man bets his head — literally — on the assurances of Joe Biden.

CONSISTENTLY ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY:

Lifting sanctions? 

I usually don,t  research, look for, or read ever word of these articles   but once again this administration is doing the incomprehensible and people do not know how explain it. It is getting to the point that even a guy like me can do "60 Muinets" job. Its everywhere. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Tanks and Jets to the Muslim Brother Hood, Putin, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and then all the domestic stuff that is equally incomprehensible. What about  Desert Storm?  What do these people think they are doing? Where are the journalists? Where are the Adults? What is Republican Mitch McConnell doing taking a 2 Billion Dollar earmark think he is doing on stopping the health care rip off bill? Why is John McCain calling Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio and more Waco Birds. Where is the US press core? This is not funny or cute or cleaver or anything, anymore, its dangerous as it gets just dumb and dumber as even this non expert can trust that what ever these people are doing it has got to be wrong on every level.  Every issue is falling the same way as you can almost trust, as a guarantee, they are being made by some bizarre criteria that is not the traditional and rational basis by which decisions have been made and are rationalized or justified, economically, socially, and legally in America.  Let alone what is driving the unstated, random, make believe ( the fabricated P.R. stunt Benghazi video, to win an election) US foreign policy. One thing is for sure Mitt Romney used the correct word for it in the election it is "Foreign". Its not Socialism, its not Communism, its not Crony Capitalism, its not rational form any stand point but what is politically advantageous in playing one entity against another entity and extracting the calculated % advantage on every issue with out regard to anything as if every topic were an independent cases to be won with out any connectedness to anything. Its not crisis management, its not micro management, its not over delegating, its like a self proclaimed know it all style of melding with things he has no comprehension of with out any cohesive vision, understanding of or long term goals for the best interests of anything or anyone. Some one needs to tell this administration "no" and its not John McCain or Mitch McConnell they have got to go. Where is the US Press core? Even better where is the World Press Core?

Barack Obama’s top ten insults against Israel
By Nile Gardiner World Last updated: April 26th, 2010
74 Comments Comment on this article
Last week Israel celebrated its 62nd year as a nation, but there was major cause for concern amid the festivities as the Israeli people faced the looming menace of a nuclear-armed Iran, as well as the prospect of a rapidly deteriorating relationship with Washington. The Israel-bashing of the Obama administration has become so bad that even leading Democrats are now speaking out against the White House. New York Senator Chuck Schumer blasted Barack Obama’s stance towards Israel in a radio interview last week, stating his “counter-productive” Israel policy “has to stop”.
At the same time a poll was released by Quinnipiac University which showed that US voters disapproved of the president’s Israel policy by a margin of 44 to 35 percent. According to the poll, “American voters say 57 – 13 percent that their sympathies lie with Israel and say 66 – 19 percent that the president of the United States should be a strong supporter of Israel.”
I recently compiled a list of Barack Obama’s top ten insults against Britain, America’s closest ally in the world. This is a sequel of sorts, a list of major insults by the Obama administration against America’s closest ally in the Middle East, Israel. As I wrote previously on Obama's treatment of both Britain and Israel:
In the space of just over a year, Barack Obama has managed to significantly damage relations with America’s two closest friends, while currying favour with practically every monstrous dictatorship on the face of the earth. The doctrine of “smart power” has evolved into the shameless appeasement of America’s enemies at the expense of existing alliances. There is nothing clever about this approach – it will ultimately weaken US global power and strengthen the hand of America’s enemies, who have become significantly emboldened and empowered by Barack Obama’s naïve approach since he took office.
The Obama presidency is causing immense damage to America’s standing in the free world, while projecting an image of weakness in front of hostile regimes. Its treatment of both Israel and Britain is an insult and a disgrace, and a grim reflection of an unbelievably crass and insensitive foreign policy that significantly undermines the US national interest.
So here’s my top 10 list of Obama administration insults against Israel after just 15 months in power:
1. Obama’s humiliation of Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House
In March, the Israeli Prime Minister was humiliated by Barack Obama when he visited Washington. As The Telegraph reported, “Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family”, after being presented with a list of 13 demands. As I wrote at the time:
This is no way to treat America’s closest ally in the Middle East, and a true friend of the United States. I very much doubt that even third world tyrants would be received in such a rude fashion by the president. In fact, they would probably be warmly welcomed by the Obama White House as part of its “engagement” strategy, while the leaders of Britain and Israel are frequently met with arrogant disdain.
2. Engaging Iran when Tehran threatens a nuclear Holocaust against Israel
In contrast to its very public humiliation of close ally Israel, the Obama administration has gone out of its way to establish a better relationship with the genocidal regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which continues to threaten Israel's very existence. It has taken almost every opportunity to appease Tehran since it came to office, and has been extremely slow to respond to massive human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including the beating, rape and murder of pro-democracy protesters.
3. Drawing a parallel between Jewish suffering in the Holocaust with the current plight of the Palestinians
In his Cairo speech to the Muslim world, President Obama condemned Holocaust denial in the Middle East, but compared the murder of six million Jews during World War Two to the “occupation” of the Palestinian territories, in a disturbing example of moral equivalence:
“On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.”
4. Obama’s attack on Israeli “occupation” in his speech to the United Nations
In his appalling speech to the UN General Assembly last September, President Obama dedicated five paragraphs to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, without once referring directly to Palestinian terrorism by name, but declaring to loud applause “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” He also lambasted the Israeli “occupation”, and drew a connection between rocket attacks on Israeli civilians with living conditions in Gaza. The speech served as a ghastly PR exercise aimed at appeasing anti-Israel sentiment in the Middle East, while bashing the Israelis over the head.
5. Obama’s accusation that Israel is the cause of instability in the Middle East
As The Wall Street Journal noted, “the Obama Administration seems increasingly of the view that Israel is the primary cause of instability in the Middle East”, citing a recent press conference where he stated:
"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them. And that ends up costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure."
6. The Obama administration’s establishment of diplomatic relations with Syria
While actively appeasing Iran, the Obama administration has also sought to develop closer ties with the other main state sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East, Syria, establishing diplomatic relations with Damascus in February. Syria remains a major backer of Hamas and Hizbollah, both responsible for a large number of terrorist attacks against Israel.
7. Hillary Clinton’s 43-minute phone call berating Netanyahu
As The Telegraph reported, Hillary Clinton sought to dictate terms to Israel in the wake of Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Jerusalem:
"In a telephone call, Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, ordered Mr. Netanyahu to reverse a decision to build 1,600 homes for Israeli settlers in occupied East Jerusalem that sparked the diplomatic row. She also instructed him to issue a formal pledge that peace talks would focus on core issues such as the future of Jerusalem and the borders of a Palestinian state. In addition, the Israeli prime minister was urged to make a substantial confidence-building gesture to the Palestinians. Mrs. Clinton suggested this could take the form of prisoner releases, an easing of the blockade of Gaza and the transfer of greater territory in the West Bank to Palestinian control."
Last time I checked, Israel was still an independent country, and not a colonial dependency of the Obama White House. Yet that still hasn’t stopped the Secretary of State from acting like an imperial Viceroy.
8. David Axelrod’s attack on Israeli settlements on "Meet the Press"
It is extremely unusual for a White House official to launch an attack on a close US ally on live television, but this is exactly what the President’s Senior Adviser David Axelrod did in an interview in March with NBC’s Meet the Press, designed to cause maximum humiliation to Israel, where he stated in reference to new settlement construction in East Jerusalem:
"This was an affront, it was an insult but most importantly it undermined this very fragile effort to bring peace to that region. For this announcement to come at that time was very destructive."
9. Hillary Clinton’s call on Israel to show "respect"
As The Telegraph revealed, the Secretary of State lectured the Israelis at a dinner attended by the Israeli ambassador and the ambassadors of several Arab states in mid-April, urging Israel to “refrain from unilateral statements” that could “undermine trust or risk prejudicing the outcome of talks”. In Clinton’s words:
"Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has embraced the vision of the two-state solution. But easing up on access and movement in the West Bank, in response to credible Palestinian security performance, is not sufficient to prove to the Palestinians that this embrace is sincere. We encourage Israel to continue building momentum toward a comprehensive peace by demonstrating respect for the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians, stopping settlement activity and addressing the humanitarian needs in Gaza."
10. Robert Gibbs’ disparaging remarks about Israel
Not one to shy away from criticizing America’s friends when the opportunity arises, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs entered the fray in an interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace in March where he attacked the Israeli government for weakening “the trust that’s needed for both sides to come together and have honest discussions about peace in the Middle East.” In condescending terms he stated that Benjamin Netanyahu should start “coming to the table with constructive ideas for constructive and trustful dialogue about moving the peace process forward.”

CRUEL AND UNUSUAL LEADERSHIP: 
CONSISTENTLY ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HISTORY:

Bill Cunninghamm every sunday night Talk Radio interviews Rand Paul and Oliver North. Bill Cunnningham says in his personalized abridged version of a famous quote from the days of Rome. A country can survive a leaders that are a fools but a country can not survive the fools that elected the fools. Rand Paul explains why collecting meta data is not constitutional and is a blanket warrant with out probable cause.  (You think? Da?  Does not have standing? a basic concept of American law) Oliver North says on public airwaves he can no longer look in the eyes of veterans and answer the question, "WHAT FOR?".  Squandered is a good word for it. American deconstructionism is an other way of putting it.  All I can say this morning is Told You So see copy past below of one of 6000 of my old posts in 3 years with over 1,790,000 views. Good show last night but as Rand Paul politely says he disagrees with that fool, sell out, looser, back stabber, Mitch McConnell. I just say, told you so,  just enter Joe Carpenter Mitch McConnell into your G+ search window for my opinions on the Republican senior leadership of idiots. There is your non-vacume Bill. Thank you Bill Cunningham for using the phrase last night "This did not happen in a vacuum". I count words and I look for bus words and I look for shared words and shared concepts and it looks like we are getting on the same page at long last. With out direct confirmation at least I can imagine someone is  is reading my posts. It may be possible that slowly the talk show hosts, talk radio researchers, writers and show programers are finding my stuff at long last or its just all happening together both are good.

Lifting sanctions? 

I usually don,t  research, look for, or read ever word of these articles   but once again this administration is doing the incomprehensible and people do not know how explain it. It is getting to the point that even a guy like me can do "60 Muinets" job. Its everywhere. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Tanks and Jets to the Muslim Brother Hood, Putin, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and then all the domestic stuff that is equally incomprehensible. What about  Desert Storm?  What do these people think they are doing? Where are the journalists? Where are the Adults? What is Republican Mitch McConnell doing taking a 2 Billion Dollar earmark think he is doing on stopping the health care rip off bill? Why is John McCain calling Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio and more Waco Birds. Where is the US press core? This is not funny or cute or cleaver or anything, anymore, its dangerous as it gets just dumb and dumber as even this non expert can trust that what ever these people are doing it has got to be wrong on every level.  Every issue is falling the same way as you can almost trust, as a guarantee, they are being made by some bizarre criteria that is not the traditional and rational basis by which decisions have been made and are rationalized or justified, economically, socially, and legally in America.  Let alone what is driving the unstated, random, make believe ( the fabricated P.R. stunt Benghazi video, to win an election) US foreign policy. One thing is for sure Mitt Romney used the correct word for it in the election it is "Foreign". Its not Socialism, its not Communism, its not Crony Capitalism, its not rational form any stand point but what is politically advantageous in playing one entity against another entity and extracting the calculated % advantage on every issue with out regard to anything as if every topic were an independent cases to be won with out any connectedness to anything. Its not crisis management, its not micro management, its not over delegating, its like a self proclaimed know it all style of melding with things he has no comprehension of with out any cohesive vision, understanding of or long term goals for the best interests of anything or anyone. Some one needs to tell this administration "no" and its not John McCain or Mitch McConnell they have got to go. Where is the US Press core? Even better where is the World Press Core?

Iraq Shi'ite militia take lead in campaign to reverse Islamic State gains

Iraq's Shi'ite paramilitaries said on Tuesday they had taken charge of the campaign to drive Islamic State from the western province of Anbar, giving the operation an openly sectarian codename that could infuriate its Sunni Muslim population.

The United States described the codename as "unhelpful" while France, which will host a meeting of nations fighting Islamic State next week, accused the Shi'ite-led government of failing to represent fully the interests of all Iraqis.

The Iraqi government is scrambling to reverse the fall of Ramadi, its biggest military setback in nearly a year. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has vowed to recapture the city, the Anbar provincial capital, within days.

Shi'ite militiamen, supported by a smaller group of government troops, advanced on Tuesday to within a few kilometres of a university on Ramadi's southwestern edge, police sources and Sunni tribal fighters allied to the government said.

As they passed through farmland south of Ramadi, the militiamen told people to return home and stay inside, promising they would not be harmed.

The loss of Ramadi a week ago was swiftly followed by the fall of the UNESCO heritage city of Palmyra in Syria, the two biggest gains by Islamic State fighters since the United States began air strikes on them in Iraq and Syria last year.

Islamic State controls swathes of territory in both countries, where it has proclaimed a caliphate to rule over all Muslims according to strict mediaeval precepts.

Its gains in the past week have raised doubts about the U.S. strategy to bomb the militants from the air but leave fighting on the ground to local Iraqi and Syrian forces.

In Iraq, the regular military's failure to hold Ramadi has forced the government to send in the Iran-backed Shi'ite paramilitaries. Washington fears this could enrage residents in the overwhelmingly Sunni province and push them into the arms of Islamic State.

A spokesman for the Shi'ite militias, which are known as Hashid Shaabi, said the codename for the new operation would be "Labaik ya Hussein". This is a slogan in honour of a grandson of the Prophet Mohammed killed in a seventh century battle that led to the schism between Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims.

"The Labaik Ya Hussein operation is led by the Hashid Shaabi in cooperation and coordination with the armed forces there," the spokesman, Ahmed al-Assadi, told a news conference. "We believe that liberating Ramadi will not take long."

In Washington, Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said the key to victory would be a unified Iraq "that separates itself from sectarian divides, coalesces around this common threat". Asked about the sectarian codename, he said: "I think it's unhelpful."

France, a leading member of the coalition against Islamic State, took the Iraqi government to task, saying there could be no military solution without a political solution among Iraq's communities.

"We linked the coalition's support to political commitments by the new Iraqi government, what we call an inclusive policy," Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told lawmakers. "This contract is what justified our military engagement and I say clearly here that it must be better respected."

The Paris meeting on June 2, which more than 20 foreign ministers including U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry are due to attend, aims to plot a strategy including on how to reverse the recent losses to Islamic State.

RISK OF ALIENATION

The militia fighters have performed better than Iraq's own army, but their presence risks alienating Sunni residents, especially if they emphasise sectarian aims.

Just weeks ago, the Baghdad government and allied militia appeared to be having success against Islamic State, recapturing former dictator Saddam Hussein's home city of Tikrit.

But Anbar has proven more difficult. The Shi'ite militia had until now stayed out of the area, where Sunni tribes have been hostile to outsiders for generations.

The United Nations expressed concern that civilians trying to flee Ramadi were being halted at police checkpoints, forcing them to return to the combat zone.

Washington hopes the government can win the support of Sunni tribal fighters, a tactic U.S. Marines used in Anbar to defeat al Qaeda during the 2003-2011 occupation of Iraq.

Any increase in sectarian rage plays into the hands of Islamic State, which promotes itself as the only force capable of protecting Sunnis from Shi'ite aggression. It considers all Shi'ites to be heretics who must repent or die, and seeks to provoke a wider sectarian battle to hasten the apocalypse.

The Baghdad government has succeeded in persuading some Sunni tribal leaders to accept help from the Shi'ite fighters, but mistrust runs deep after years of sectarian war in which atrocities were committed on both sides.

President Barack Obama, who won office in 2008 campaigning to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, has ruled out sending ground forces to fight Islamic State. Instead, Iran has filled that vacuum, providing aid and leadership to the Shi'ite militiamen.

"NOT DONE A DAMN THING"

The commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, the main Iranian force backing its allies abroad, mocked Washington for doing too little to help Baghdad.

"Obama has not done a damn thing so far to confront Daesh. Doesn't that show that there is no will in America to confront it?" Qassem Soleimani said, using an Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

His remarks came a day after U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter infuriated Baghdad by saying the Iraqi army had abandoned Ramadi because it lacked "the will to fight", remarks Iraqi Prime Minister Abadi said showed Carter was misinformed.

In a move of apparent damage control, Vice President Joe Biden phoned Abadi on Monday to reassure him Washington still supported Baghdad.
