Baghdad, Iraq - Over the weekend, terrorists of the Islamic state, known as ISIS, reportedly went on a house-to-house search in Iraq.
Their prey? At least 50 men, women and children, all members of a U.S.- allied Sunni clan. No official word on where they were marched off to though many conclude it was to their own executions.
It`s a likely ending since ISIS has claimed killing hundreds of those clan members in mass killings in recent days.
While that horror was taking place, other Kurds from Iraq arrived in Kobani in northern Syria to reinforce Syrian Kurds in the battle against ISIS for control of the town.
The Kurdish fighters, known as Peshmerga, crossed Turkey accompanied by Turkish military. This is the largest reported crossing of reinforcements to help the Syrian Kurds defend the besieged Kobani.
Isis has been fighting to take Kobani for about six weeks, intent on adding it to the territory it already captured in parts of Syria and Iraq to build what it calls its new independent Islamic nation.
The U.S. continues its airstrikes targeting the Islamic terrorists while Americans and the rest of the world wonder exactly what it will take to stop the senseless destruction.
