The Hell After ISIS

Even as the militant group loses ground in Iraq, many Sunnis say they have no hope for peace. One family’s story shows why....

I read it. It's an interesting account of one families' struggle to stay alive as refugees.

Thanks for posting.

Excellent article. Thanks.

It was an amazing and tragic story of one family trying to survive in Iraq. For Americans it is difficult to imagine facing the constant loss of life, loss of income, loss of dignity, loss of family and friends and loss of home and possessions. The U.S. did try to fix the massive problems we caused for the nation of Iraq. It didn't happen and it won't happen in our lifetimes.

In the context of winning ground in the unending conflict with ISIS and other terrorist organizations and pirates, it is interesting to note that others than the US are now worried about how captives will be treated. The discussion is reminiscent of the Bush days but maybe less honest, as many groups were very vocal in condemning the US for Gitmo etc., but have no alternative: nytimes.com/2016/05/12/world/middleeast/lack-of-plan-for-isis-detainees-raises-human-rights-concerns.html?emc=edit_th_20160512&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=32131995&_r=0
