These are maps I sincerely wish that I did not feel a need to post. Our American news media began to ignore the collapse Iraq as soon as the “bigger more urgent stories” the Israel-Gaza war, and the shooting down of Malaysian flight MH17 over Ukraine. I suppose there is only so much “news multitasking” that they are capable of doing. I’m sure the Obama WH is happy to Iraq pushed out of the prime time news slot. Already there are reports of women being stoned to death by ISIS throngs in Iraq and the terrible slaughter of Iraqi Christians, who are forced to “convert or die”. I found these maps tonight on 7.23.2014.
