Iraq seeks US help in air strike

Iraq which is going through a serious war has reportedly asked the United States help in air strike on ISIS [Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] group. So far ISIS has killed 1,700 shiites and they are reports that the militants have targetted the largest oil refinery in Iraq. However, the government officials of Iraq have declared that they hit back at the militants and the situation is under control.


Nevertheless, the militants are attacking with new strategies and approaching new places to take. The Iraq faced a huge setback on Wednesday as 59 high ranked security officials have quit the jobs and not willing to move in the war. The Spokesperson of Iraq national security forces has ordered for a probe into this issue and things are getting worse for Iraq as each day is passing.


Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has asked President Obama for air strikes but the White House has been unwilling to agree. However, the Obama administration is heard to moving surveillance flights to the USS George H.W. Bush, an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf. On Wednesday, the White House has released a statement that Obama is undecided about helping Iraq and a decision on it may take some more time. The US Media is also reporting that US is moving F-18s  Fighter jets. The US is also having word with neighbour country Iran and the threat from ISIS.

ISIS is considering to attack US Embassies in several countries if it helps the Iraqi government and so it gave intimation to its members and groups in various countries.
