    Iraq needs to get their PMU to the border.

      PMU can do that without Iraqi permission if they wish. Their problem was along sectarian lines, I do believe they have enough Sunni Tribal forces to launch this attack, the war is over, I don’t understand why they are still tip-toeing!

        because the PMU can not do this without permission

    They’re planning operations bu the problem is this area is the same region that the US fled out of fear, the region is full of some very strong support for the Islamic state. That is why this such a difficult region to take since the US had run roughshod over the people to ensure this would happen. The US as always goes to great lengths to create a bogeyman.
