The last two months in Iraq have seen brutal sectarian violence in which almost 1000 people have been killed. Most of the violence is perpetrated by extremist Sunni militias (often made up of international jihadists) with links to Al Qaeda. The victims are usually Shi'ite Muslims who are regarded as heretics. The majority of Iraqis are Shi'ite Muslims who mainly live in the south and east of the country. This is the worst sectarian violence in Iraq since 2007 except back then American troops were able to launch a surge against the extremists and reduce tensions. What is to stop the violence this time? Iraqi civilians are being butchered and no one in the west gives a damn.
The "War on Terror" is a sick joke. There was no Al Qaeda in Iraq before the invasion in 2003 yet now they operate with almost total impunity. In Syria the government is fighting against terrorists and William Hague wants to send guns to Al Qaeda! How many more secular governments does the west want to overthrow and allow the Wahhabists take control?
