In an instant we could be in this situation at a shopping mall, or in a restaurant or walking through a museum, zoo anywhere at anytime. Keep those refugees coming Obama, the idiot of all idiots. Baghdad is supposed to be a safer place to live as we have our US Embassy over there and military. The ISIS terrorists are getting closer than ever and more desperate to advance into Baghdad where many “infidels” (US soldiers) are stationed.
Today this is breaking on FOX news.:
Gunmen stormed into a Baghdad mall on Monday after setting off a car bomb and launching a suicide attack at its entrance, killing at least 18 people and wounding 50 in the city’s mainly Shiite east, Iraqi officials said.
The attack is described by officials as a hostage situation, estimating that 50 people were trapped inside the complex. But Iraqi forces soon surrounded the building and landed troops on the roof. They clashed with the attackers inside, killing two of them, arresting another four and declaring the standoff over.
Four policemen were killed in the assault which lasted around an hour and a half, according to the police and medical officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters.
It seems that Iraqi forces are stepping up to the plate now days. They are trying to fight ISIS with an aggressiveness never seen since they ran away from them and dropped their weapons. Our men and women in military have persistently been training them and with more supplies and special forces given over the past 6 months, the Iraqis have made forward progress. If they ended this ambush within an hour and a half, they proved to fight to the finish and are getting more experienced and surefooted with our help.
