Opinionated Vicar: Desperate news from Iraq

Iraq is now in its worst crisis since the 2003 war. ISIS the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Group, a group that does not even see Al Qaida as extreme enough, has moved into Mosul, which is Nineveh. It has totally taken control, destroyed all government departments. Allowed all prisoners out of the prisons. Killed countless numbers of people. There are bodies over the streets. The army and police have fled, so many of the military resources have been captured. Tankers, armed vehicles and even helicopters are now in the hands of ISIS.Mosul residents fleeing the ISIS takeover.
