The looming Mosul liberation battle has raised the hopes of most that the evil D’aesh may soon be militarily defeated in Iraq, bringing an end to what can only be considered one of the darkest eras of Iraq’s modern history – the formation of a Wahhabi state within Iraq. Iraqis of course would be considered […]
