Mosul operation going faster than planned, says Iraq ministry

By Rudaw 2/11/2016

Brigadier Saad Maan, the spokesperson of Iraq’s Interior Ministry told Rudaw that the plan of the joint command in Nineveh is going faster than what the army had planned.

 

“The anti-terrorism forces are present on the ground in Gogjali and on other fronts I don’t think it will take long,” Brig. Maan said.

 

He added: “We have challenges. We’ve to protect the infrastructure and before that protect the lives of people. And we also have to be careful and not lose the lives of our soldiers.”

 

“Militarily we are sure of the success of our operation. It is the just the matter of time.” Brig. Maan said confidently.

 

According to Maan, the Iraqi army has on the southern front retaken 1440 square kilometers and “We’ve also freed 65 villages of 85 villages on this front.”

 

“One of the main reasons for this success is the great communication we’ve with the Peshmerga.” Brig. Maan said.

Good Peshmerga, please hang on to the land you have just battled for and which now should belong to you. Do not take the wordy, subtle and complex analyses of cultural and historical experts too seriously. Their role is only very secondary. To quote the English poet John Milton "They also serve who only stand and wait". You have served in the blistering heat of your battles, and now serve in the controlled command of your wait. But the time will soon come when your service will be to the administration of your own hard-won lands. The service of the analysts is to provide leisure reading matter when the jobs are done. Your call is to a more substantial and sacred duty.

What the Brigadier actually said in Arabic was great "coordination" with the Peshmerga - that is arguably even more impressive.

Boo! We don't need Iranian Shia puppets like you to be in control of this region! May the Sunnis win and the Shias submit to the rules as well
