The Hill: How to make sense of the different factions and forces now fighting in Syria and Iraq? The conflict is best understood as a three-way war among ISIS (the radical Sunni offshoot of al Qaeda), moderate Sunnis, and Shiites.  In this three-way war, each of the three sides is vying for victory against the other two, and each also represents a much greater cause.

Huffington Post: Amidst a rising discontent against Iraqi prime minister Maliki and his blatant human rights violations, and at a time when the public as well as both Shiite and Sunni leaders including Maliki's own allies were asking him to step down, the news came out that Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, had been captured and Maliki's army had fled the city in a matter of just one hour.

American Thinker: With our typical lack of foresight, we have sanctioned that Iran send its special black-ops forces to protect Baghdad. How conveniently we have “forgotten” that on Baghdad’s western flank, a kilometer north of the Baghdad International Airport, sits Camp “Liberty,” where some 3,000 Iranian refugee opponents of the Tehran regime reside.

UPI: The popular uprising continues unabated in Iraq, with the successive liberation of its cities and the collapse of Maliki's forces as they retreat and desert en mass in the face of coordinated tribal opposition. Following the shock of dramatic changes that have taken place with lightening speed, a question keeps surfacing: Is what we are witnessing in Iraq an uprising by Iraqis or an attack by a terrorist group?
