In Iraq, U.S.-backed Iraqi forces launched a campaign to retake western Mosul from ISIS on Sunday, as the U.S. increased airstrikes against the militants in the city. Human rights groups are warning of “extreme risk” for the 650,000 civilians in the western half of the city. The campaign to retake the city of Mosul initially began in October.
It is interesting to see the actions taking place today can be looked at as an extension of the Iraq War– a war Barack Obama claimed to finish. It does not look for the people of Iraq that the U.S wants to push the Iraqi Millitary for their own agenda in taking over Mosul.
