Al-Qaeda on Fallujah: “We have returned”

Key Iraqi city has fallen into the hands of Al-Qaeda group ISIL after days of fierce fighting.

George W. Bush declared the war in Iraq for over, on 1st of May 2003, on board USS Abraham Lincoln.

The Iraqi government has lost control of Fallujah to Al-Qaeda-linked militants, a senior security official said Saturday, after days of fighting sparked by an anti-government protest camp’s removal.

Parts of the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah, west of Baghdad, have been held by militants for days, harkening back to the years after the 2003 US-led invasion when both were insurgent strongholds.

Fighting erupted in the Ramadi area Monday, when security forces removed the main anti-government protest camp set up after demonstrations broke out in late 2012 against what Sunni Arabs say is the marginalisation and targeting of their community.

Anger at the Shiite-led government among the Sunni minority is seen as one of the main drivers of the worst violence to hit Iraq in five years.

“Fallujah is under the control of ISIL,” a senior security official in Anbar province told AFP, referring to Al-Qaeda-linked group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

To what shall we compare the return to al-Qaeda to the city of Fallujah?

It must be General Douglas MacArthur’s “”I came through and I shall return”” comment when he left the Philippines in March 1942.

No doubt, both the US Marines and the Islamic Jihad returned as promised.

The return of al-Quada to Fallulah is also significant, related to George W. Bush declaring the war in Iraq for won, on first of a May 2003.

Now, we have to question what kind of Pyrrhic victory this was?

The return of al-Qaeda is displaying the US war romantic’s in all its horror. In particularly since this war was started on a lie. There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Will the US and British war criminals W.Bush and Tony Blair ever be arrested, and brought to the War crime tribunal in the Hague?

      My reply:

      Yes, let us not sit in the assembly of the wicked. Lets raise up and defend the true Messiah. Even to the point of loosing our life in the flesh. There will soon be at last two true witnesses coming to Jerusalem.

      1. It will come to that Ivar, Satan can kill the body he thinks but because of our resurrected LORD we will return with Him. If anyone loves this world they are not His. There name is written on the earth. Yes there will be two witnesses in the future in Jerusalem but by His Grace as long as i live i pray to be one for the One that saved me, my LORD GOD
