Iraq to US: Bomb ISIS Or We'll Ask Iran


Spokesman for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's Dawa Party Haider al-Abadi issued a warning today that the nation is running out of patience with the US on not intervening against ISIS yet.

Abadi went on to say that the US needs to launch immediate airstrikes against ISIS, and that if they don't, Iraq would court Iran to launch the strikes for them instead.

Iran has been keen to aid the Iraqi government, but the nation's Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian insists Iran won't send ground troops to directly intervene, and will limit their involvement to arms shipments and the current advisory operations.

Which sounds remarkably familiar to what the US is doing itself, suggesting both nations are in a race toward back door involvement in the war, while both assuring the public they won't be doing so.
