White House calls on Iraq government to 'step up to the plate' over Mosul

Now the blame game starts. The truth is, ALL of this comes back to the very
start of US Hegemony. Illegally destabilizing, occupying and destroying everything it touches.

Just look at America itself today as living proof. No democracy. Thugs running riot, oppression everywhere, Hello?

The US on Tuesday pressed for a strong response to push Islamic extremists out of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, as a sudden withdrawal of Iraqi government forces from the city led the White House to question whether prime minister Nouri al-Maliki was doing enough to hold his country together.

The White House called on the Iraqi government to “step up to the plate” and do more to address political concerns across the country after the fall of Mosul to forces from the Islamic State of Iraq in Syria (Isis) – also known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) – left officials in Washington warning of an “extremely serious” threat that could impact the entire region.

“The United States is deeply concerned about the events that have transpired in Mosul over the last 48 hours where elements of the Islamic State of Iraq (Isil) have taken over significant parts of the city,” added the State Department in a statement.
