The Iraqi military has reportedly warned of an Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) resurgence in northern Iraq, noting that the group has already attacked the Kurdish-majority Kirkuk region, home to lucrative oil fields. In an interview with Bas News, Ahmed Askari, a member of the Kurdish-held Kirkuk Provincial Council, dismissed as false the Iraqi militarys allegation of an ISIS re-emergence in northern Iraq, a region primarily controlled by the autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
However, Kurdistan 24 reports:
Islamic State (IS) extremists on Saturday launched an attack on an oil field in Kirkuk Province, killing at least two police officers. A security source from Kirkuk said a group of IS militants attacked the Khabaza oil field in the disputed province, killing at least two police officers and wounding another one.The security source added that police reinforcements were sent to the site of the attack but did not reveal whether any of the oil wells were also targeted by the militant group.
Outside Iraq and Syria, ISISs goal of fostering interconnectivity and resiliency among its global branches and networks probably will result in local and, in some cases, regional attack plans, noted the Worldwide Threat Assessment, adding:
Sunni violent extremistsmost notably ISIS and al-Qaidapose continuing terrorist threats to US interests and partners worldwide, while US-based homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) will remain the most prevalent Sunni violent extremist threat in the United States, it added. Iran and its strategic partner Lebanese Hizballah also pose a persistent threat to the United States and its partners worldwide.

Mattis is meeting at the resort where Sessions is staying (an undisclosed location). Reportedly, they will have some sort of conference after the party weekend finishes up, but before the big banquet for other swamp dwellers who have successfully infiltrated the current administration.
The only question has always been how many trillions of U.S. dollars and how many dead U.S. military personnel before we leave and it descends back into the shithole it’s always been.
fighting WITH the kurds who have NO record of green on blue Killings is much better than having 800 soldiers fighting with the Afghans, eh?
