Activation of international support for Iraq

We need international support in the confrontation with terrorism is undeniable and overlooked, as the international community appreciate the importance of Iraq strategy in this confrontation. And it arrived in Iraq the various forms of logistical assistance, but noted that the extent to which is still below the desired shape as is to get more support. Major countries concerned led the battle with terrorism file look at our condition internal precision which specifies the amount of light that reaches the support and quantity and the beneficiaries of it.
Iraq has suffered is still a terrorist tremendous pressure, because of its geographical location of the characteristic privacy allow gangs of terrorists to threaten all the neighboring countries, especially the Gulf ones, where rich oil wells and the presence of Mecca and Medina, as most cities of the Islamic holiness and symbolism which explains the insistence of terrorist gangs to get it created foot inside it.
Deep political differences and lack of political system and persistence of effect on the stability of the strategic position of the state in general, while managing the terrorist gangs to control the number of major cities and important in western and northern Iraq. International support for Iraq is still incomplete and without what we wish, as of this support its impact in accelerating the momentum of victories and the destruction of the main power of the gangs of terrorists, Iraqi army did not provide themselves with enough weapons and combat equipment developed, as well as the Air Force that the Iraqi army is suffering from a severe shortage in it .
We were expecting with the heightened security situation in June of 2014 to see bridges the huge air which is flowing to the capital, Baghdad, in order to secure and regain the position and initiative, but that did not happen and not the appearance of the popular crowd as an efficient and support the armed forces, and begun the process of editing a quick recovery of the occupied territories and securing Baghdad gates there was another interview.
«Daesh» as an organization designated global terrorist can not be that possesses all of these capabilities and plans criminal fine depending on the potential of its leaders fearful and hiding in burrows, but it was clear that there is support for a hidden intelligence and Khtttiya not unlikely involvement of a number of major in which countries in order to achieve the agendas and goals in region, and then there is no harm from compromising later members and leaders of the gang, as the members of the «Daesh» move easily between land and the countries of the world without any harassment and campaigns of recruitment and mobilization are in full swing in front of the sight intelligence agencies hunting as these terrorists is assumed, as well as skills operating complex weapons, use and that require intensive and continuous training, which raises a lot of question marks about the seriousness of some countries in the fight against «Daesh» and eliminate it, especially as it was able to in the past and through a massive aerial bombing destroyed many regular armies and defeat political abide by its laws.
Certainly the continuation of terror and survival represents a desire by some Western countries for the implementation of agendas and deals, in addition to the depletion of the Arab and Islamic worlds material and human and occupancy of wars and mesmerized besieging the population and their exposure to the risk of homelessness and displacement, in addition to redraw the maps of states and borders and then dismantling the State and isolated in cantons sectarian and nationalist and far between warring among themselves.
Iraqis from supporting countries want real support respects the political and cultural specificity of the Iraqi people and engage wholeheartedly in the fight against terrorism away from the dictations and conditions policies and the fragmentation of the Iraqi security forces, according to specific categories allow her to receive air support for coalition alone Donna from the other, which creates a large gap between them and cause an embarrassment for the government as well.
Support of Operation Iraqi and support should not be limited to data and fiery speeches without real effects on the ground, in addition to the need to diplomatic crowd to its peak potential and convince supporting us on countries to provide better support and potentials in order to crush terrorism, weaken and eliminate it as a goal and one everyone is seeking him.
The threat of terrorism is no longer confined to a specific geographical area, such as Iraq and Syria, but is threatening most of the world has not been spared even Europe from evil and stand the world against him and fight in their own home and its strongholds, and the liquidation of its symbols and its leadership objective is to seek to achieve with the increasing strikes against him. Agendas and political field intersecting and targets one of the reasons behind the lack of seriousness of the international coalition in the fight against terrorist organizations and weaken their capacity to a large extent may be, in addition to the selective position based on sectarian accounts by some Gulf countries that have relations with the section of this regulation and care for its own ends as a change of regime in Syria and weaken it in Iraq.
The reconstruction of liberated areas file and one of the international anti-terrorist coalition functions of a file needs to be efforts and a lot of money, especially since these areas have suffered from the evil of terrorism and its crimes and the coordination of the government with the coalition in the case of financial aid is essential in order to remove the effects of terrorism for our people and provide an opportunity for restoration what cracked the national construction and unify positions and face the division and separation projects.
