Terrorist reached and killed 100's in Tikrit and we can't find my family (EDIT # 5 ) Another City taken USA is talking with Iran

Posted by   + Show Post

This is the worse thing ever. My brothers and sisters have been trying to reach our family in Tikrit all day after finding the terrorist have captured it and killed anyone they came in contact with including taking their heads off and calling them non-believers.

There is no answer for any family or family friends in Tikrit. We do not who is dead or alive. My brother said their are many pictures of people being killed posted on line and they are sifting the Internet for familiar faces.

Everyone in Baghdad is ok but they are waiting and they are scared. They expect terrorist to be their within the the next several hours. They can not go to check on anyone in Tikrit and they can't get answers on their phone either but hundreds have been killed they don't even know how many hundreds of people.

Now we find something nobody knew or was prepared for terrorist have 2 helicopters. Iraqi has sent a call to Hamas in Gaza Palestine to come help. I think Hamas is getting ready to go now but Gaza has no air power either. They need air power.

They asked USA for air power and USA said if they can't grow a backbone and help them self then USA can't help either. They are tho one who took the backbone !!!!!!!

Edit :Well it's about 1:00 PM in Baghdad and the terrorist are now 24 miles out side the Capitol and apparently the USA Embassy is open for business with no plans on closing. My brother just spent the last 3 or 4 hours trying to get through and finally got an American on the phone.

She could not tell him anything about our family, nobody knows but she did say most of the murders which are now in the thousands are Shia military and Shiah government employees all of which USA put in place.

My brother also told which I don't know if Embassy told him this or not but ISIS are still sitting the major city's they have captured and I know Tikrit was specific target so maybe everyone is just laying low and not able to get news out or answer their phone.

Current from Arabic news : I already mentioned the terrorist are 24 miles out side of the Capital of Baghdad. The Irani National Guard is waiting for them to approach. Hezb'ollah out of Lebanon which is Shiah is on their way and so is Hamas from Gaza Palestine which is Sunni. Kuwait, Qatar, The Emirates all have military in place sitting around doing nothing "in case" they are needed. Obama is still waiting to see what "will happen" and who knows where the fuck the the Arab League are.

We are devastated about all of this and for the thousands killed but now we have a little bit of hope to hang to that maybe our family members in Tikrit are still alive since they are Sunni and are not government employees.

Many body's are also washing up from the Tigris River and they appear to be all Shiah and Iraqi Soldiers. They did give a number of total of 1,700 Shia soldiers bodies found but there are more than that.

Coming back to add that I forgot to say America has announced "if needed" they are willing to make a "temporary alliance" with Iran. Yesterday they are enemy, today maybe they will be a friend, tomorrow they will be enemy again.

Here a couple photos of the attack on Tikrit yesterday. This is not even close the photos of people murdered and beheaded they showed on Arabic news that are not accessible in USA on Internet because they are posted on terrorist site but just to give you an idea of how they have everyone taken over.

.

If the teorrist (ISIS) reach Baghdad in another 24 miles and are not stopped their plan is to hit all the banks and if they do that then there is worry about oil but I didn't understand that part about the oil.

This is not Al-queda. They are an off shoot of Al Queida. A top fighter of Al- Queida Baghdaddi broke off and took Al-Queida members with him and has built the ISIS organization so big that Al-Queida can't fight them. There are rumors but not confirmed that Al-Queida was asked to help and they claim they are over whelmed by ISIS and can't stand up to them.

Edit #3 : Just announced USA is sending boots on the ground. Of course I got interruptedin the middle of listening so I am not clear if boots on ground will be for combat or just security for the embassy wich they did mention they are sending because they plan to keep embassy open. They said they will not bring the Americans out if they have to they will relocate them for safety but troops are getting read to go now. Not many I didn't catch how many they said but it is not allot of troops. I will keep listening for more accurate facts.

Yes now I cought it they said they are sending boots on the ground for a "non combat role" lol why bother to send them ?

Just heard it 273 troops for security

Now they just announced they will aslo send Special Forces but do not say how many

Edit 4:Now they announced USA if finally concerned enough to get their people out. They have decided that it is too unsafe for the Embassy and other American employees and are sending for them now and say they are getting them allout which is a total of about 5000

Edit :5 Just announced ISIS has taken control over Tal Afar a city with around 200,000,citizens. They have just brought down a helicopter and killed the 2 Shiah soldiers in it. They are lining them up for not to see who will be executed and who will not. Citizens of the city are using their phones getting news of the happenings out. At least reported 5 minutes ago they were reported as being able to make phone calls out.

Looks like this was the last straw. The Obama administration is discussing with Iran the "temporary alliance" now. They are also saying but it has not been officially confirmed it looks as "non combat boots on the ground" is going to change to "combat boots of the ground". Again that has not been officially confirmed but according to the reports of the discussions taking place with Iran that, that may end up being the case.

Was the leader of ISIS held on Gitmo and released because the administration deemed him as not a threat?

I am so sorry. You must be worried sick. I hope you get a call very soon that everything is well, and they are safe-every last one of them. What a nightmare. I can't even imagine.

 His name is Abu Bakr Baghdaddi he was held 4 years. I think they were holding him in a jail in Iraq during the war. I am not sure when he was held and released I just know he was there 4 years. I'm just learning about them myself and unfortunately I have been forced to learn allot very fast.

It sounds like you are very distressed and upset. I'm so sorry to hear that your family is in danger. I am worried about you too though. Taking 3 Xanax and sleeping medicines is concerning. I would suggest that you turn the news off for periods today and maybe play something soothing on the radio and rest. :-( call someone (family, friends, or us) and talk to them if you need too about how you feel. Please take care of yourself and keep us updated (if you feel up to it). I'll think of you and your family in my prayers today.

Quoting 1stmuslimah:

 I made a post about they have too many American recruit who with terrorist now. I am sorry I really can not stay and talk about it more. I will take some sleeping medicine and try not to think maybe in the morning I can answer replies. I did want to leave that one last post so people will no the truth because America will not say it.


Quoting cjsix:

what? I don't understand....


Quoting 1stmuslimah:

 I can't think about it any more tonight. I will go up to my bed so I can listen to the TV. I am going to leave one last post and go. They have many American recruits with them one who did the first suicide bomb today. They found them in Syria and they joined with terrorist and are with them now.


I know this will not be in American news so i will make the post and come back sometime tomorrow.


Quoting blondekosmic15:

This breaks my heart Muslimah. We are all God's children. I hope and pray your family is safe. How many family members do you have in the region? What about friends? It's difficult to fathom the hatred and violence demonstrated by terrorists like ISIS and other cells. I read a recent report Al-Qaeda disassociates themselves from ISIS because of intense violence and barbaric practices of this group. Personally I believe they're both evil and a bunch of savages. Iraq is on the brink of falling into the hands of radical terrorist groups. I'm deeply concerned unstability and violence will reach neighboring countries. Barack Obama is weak and unresponsive to pleas for help. I fear violence and unrest will escalate under this admin. 


Quoting 1stmuslimah:

 I wanted to tell you something but I had to take 3 Xanax and get my mind together to think straight. I know you follow the Chaldean Christian. Besides those who may have been able to leave in time I am sure most of Tikrit is dead including my family there as well. We (my family) is very sure this is the case. Tikrit has one of the very largest Chaldean population and those who were still there have probably already lost their head today.


They do not discriminate though and the case is the same with my Sunni relatives as it is with the Chaldean. No one expects they are still alive.

Thank you Muslimah for sharing your concerns about family and loved ones. I prayed for you and your family at Church this evening. I fear for Baghdad. Appears to be the next target for ISIS. Pls keep us posted.


Thank you  God bless~


 I am so sick now after this. I am waiting on 3 way line with brother now he is trying to call people. I am downstairs and now I have not had my TV on in months and I don't where remote control is to listen and I don't want to stay stuck up stairs to hear the TV. So until I am ready to go to bed I can not listen for anything new.


I am quite sure they call them unbeliever because Tikrit has a very large Christian Chaldean population as well as my people Sunni.


I'm so sorry Muslimah. I read a report today that Christians may never return to Iraq. They're fleeing for their lives and the safety of their families. Neighboring nations must be overwhelmed with refugees and humanitarian needs. I will continue to pray.

 Thank you for your concern. I have disease that up until 10 months ago I have had very little problems with except my left arm and hand became paralyzed in 2009. I spent a year learning how to use my hand with no feeling.

about 10 o11 months ago the disease attacked my whole nervous system and my nerve endings are dying. Therefore I shake uncontrollably now. Usually if I take 1 Xanax when I wake up and one more in the evening it is good enough to stop me from shaking. Last night I was a nervous reck to the point that I was sick to my stomach from my nerves. One was not going to the trick. Once I allow the shaking to start it is like it grows and gets worse and worse. I should take the Xanax on time before it starts but I did not yesterday and with the added stress and too many in my family all upset and calling back and forth was just too much for me to deal with.

I also have sleep disorder now from the disease so I take sleeping pill before bed and even then I only sleep 2, 3, maybe 4 hours at the most.

I don't always take too many pills at one time but last night I needed them and still I was up and awake at 2 AM. I did just have a couple hour nap though.

Thank you for your offer to talk and listen. It's not the news that is stressing me out as much as much as it is my sisters. They are beside their self with grief. They are older than me and spent up through their teens in Iraq so they know everyone there better than I do. I have not seen them since 2000 and most of my cousins who are now adults were small children.Therefore it is effecting them more than it is me and they are creating too much stress.

 so off topic but do you have guillain barre syndrome? My sm has it and had many of the same things you are describing. She went through a 5 day iv therapy that enabled her nerve endings to regrow.

I will keep your family in my prayers.  Please let us know what is happening and if you find that your family is safe.  

I am so sorry for this.  As a OIF/OEF veteran I wish many days that things had been done differently to avoid this.

As much as I sympathize with you and sincerely hope your family and friends are okay, I can't help but wonder why you've insinuated throughout your post that this latest conflict is all America's fault?
