Late could southamptons guided escort

(CNN) — Reigning English Premier League champions Manchester City began the new season as they ended the last, at the escort top of the table.
But City were made to work hard for their 2-0 victory against a lively Newcastle United side.
The eskort match began with floral tributes for two Newcastle fans who died when flight MH17 crashed in eastern Ukraine last month bayan escort killing all 298 on board.

John Alder escort bayan and Liam Sweeney were traveling to New Zealand to watch their team play in a preseason tournament before tragedy struck.
On 17 minutes the stadium broke out into a minutes applause in their honor.
Classy control
On the pitch Newcastle more than matched City, creating almost as many chances. Crucially, they couldnt get a single shot on target and with half time approaching, Bosnian international Edin Dzeko superbly controlled a long ball over the top of the defense before back-heeling it into the path of David Silva who slotted home.
I think we deserved it, Man of the Match Dzeko told Sky Sports after the game. We played aggressive and they didnt have any chances.

A late second
That wasnt strictly true. Newcastle pressed in the second half and with a little more composure could have snatched an equalizer.
Instead, substitute Sergio Aguero fired the ball home at the second attempt in injury time to add some gloss to the scoreline.
It was frustrating for us because in the second half we pushed on, brought some younger players on who were a little naive but threatened with their pace, Newcastle coach Alan Pardew told Sky Sports.
We looked like we might win it, he added.
Liverpool win
Earlier in the day, Liverpool began life without Luis Suarez with a 2-1 victory over Southampton.
Suarez had been in phenomenal form since his arrival at Anfield in 2011, scoring 69 goals in 110 games. Last season had been his best yet, driving Liverpool to a second place finish and narrowly missing out on the clubs first Premier League title.
Yet his time had always been filled with controversy.

He arrived after serving a suspension for biting a player whilst playing in the Dutch league, and was suspended again for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
He was also banned for allegedly racially abusing then-Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
However, after being sanctioned for biting a player at this summers World Cup finals — a four month ban from all football related activities — Liverpool sold him to Barcelona.
A solid start
It was a solid, if unspectacular, start for life without Suarez. Raheem Sterling, one of the players to shine most alongside the Uruguayan last season, opened the scoring with a superb side foot finish from a wonderful Jordan Henderson through ball.
Southampton equalized with aplomb, Nathaniel Clyne smashing home into the top right hand corner, and had much the better of the second half.
Yet it was the diminutive Sterling who somehow won a header in Southamptons penalty box which was guided home by fellow England international Daniel Sturridge.
He sent us a lovely text this morning wishing us all the best, which was a great gesture. He is a friend now of Liverpool, coach Brendan Rodgers said of Suarez after the game, according to the Press Association.
I texted him back. Its a real love in! Hes a great boy but he is gone now … Today was about winning and we got there.

(CNN) — The queen of Macaus gambling empire is about to unveil a new palace.
The foundations are already being laid for Macaus new multi-billion dollar casino-resort, named — aptly enough — Wynn Palace.
It will be the latest jewel in U.S. business magnate Steve Wynns glittering casino crown, after he originally built Las Vegass premier Bellagio, and The Mirage — now owned by MGM Resorts International.
How DVF conquered fashion world
From stay-at-home mom to self-made billionaire
And the person to launch it? Forty-seven year old executive director Linda Chen.
Often sighted as a likely successor to billionaire Wynn, Taiwanese-born Chief Operating Officer Chen oversaw the opening of luxury gaming, hotel, and retail complex Wynn Macau, in 2006.
And shes not about to stop there.
Read: The dress that launched an empire
When we first came to Macau, the scene was more about gaming, Chen told CNNs Kristie Lu Stout. And the aspiration for Macau, the reason we wanted to be here, is taking it to the next level.
In Vegas, its no longer just about gaming. Its about the entertainment. Its where you would consider the best shows in the world, the best shopping, and the best restaurants. Its about the whole experience, and thats what we wanted to do here.
In its first year Wynn Macau quadrupled its annual revenue from $1 billion to $4.5billion, under Chens stewardship.One of Asias 50 most powerful businesswomen, according to Forbes, Chen has worked her socks off to become the second in command at Wynn. But could luck also have played a part in her success?
Come 2016, Wynn Macau (pictured) will have a sister casino.Getty Images
Chen apparently has the number 8888 — considered lucky in Chinese culture — for her phone, a present from her wealthy boss.
Luck or no luck, gaming was not the direction Chen or her parents saw her career going, when she graduated from New Yorks Cornell University in 1989.
It was the end of the world for them, she says with a laugh.
For Chinese parents coming from Taiwan, they never knew anybody else who worked in the casino industry. They never thought somebody would live outside the casinos in Las Vegas. So it took a while, but eventually they were supportive.
Stepping out of her private jet, Chen appears every inch the high-flying business superstar. But when asked about one day succeeding Wynn himself, she is a little reticent.
Mr Wynns very young, he is not ready to retire soon, Chen says with a smile. I hope he works for another 30, 40 years — and Ill be alongside with him.

Of and major escort bayan winners

(CNN) — World number one Serena Williams won her first ever Cincinnati Open, and her 62nd career WTA title, by escort bayan brushing aside Ana Ivanovic 6-4, 6-1.
Williams needed just 62 minutes to dispatch her Serbian rival and win her second title in a month.
The victory was the perfect preparation for the seasons final major, the US Open, which begins in eight days time.
I just kind of close my eyes and serve
Serena Williams
It was such a great week, Williams said after the victory, before praising Ivanovics performance.
She was playing so hard, hitting so many winners.
Poor season
It has, by her own high standards, been a below par season for Williams.
She hasnt made it to a final of a single major so far this season.

Williams father: Were too soft on kids
And whilst her five titles this year — in Miami, Brisbane, Stanford, Rome and now Cincinnati — could be considered a good eight months work for almost any other player, Williams is held, both by herself and her peers, to a higher standard.
Yet Cincinnati was something of a return to form. She won nine of the last ten games, pounding 12 aces and 26 winners along the way.
I just kind of close my eyes and serve, Williams said. When you think about it too much you get kind of crazy.
Sweet 18?
Williams will hope that her first Cincinnati title is a good omen before the US Open.
She turns 33 this year and is desperate to win another major singles title.
If she accomplishes that in New York, shell tie with Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, who have both won 18 majors, and will be just four behind Steffi Graf who holds the record with 22.
Federer 80-up
Later on Sunday Roger Federer won his sixth Cincinnati Open, and an incredible 80th career title, after beating Spains David Ferrer 6-3, 1-6. 6-2.
After taking the first set it looked like the evergreen Federer would easily close out for the championship.
But Ferrer hit back in the second set 6-1 before Federer showed his fighting spirit again and took the third.
It was a sensational victory for the oldest player currently in the world top 25. He will now be heading to the US Open full of confidence after reaching the final in his past four tournaments including Wimbledon.

Researchers evden eve nakliyat are creating

(CNN) — NASAs black-hole hunting telescope has captured a cosmic battle between dark and light.
NuSTAR, formally known as the Nuclear evden eve nakliyat Spectroscopic Telescope Array, has observed a supermassive black holes gravity tugging on X-ray light thats being emitted near that black hole.
NASA says The regions around supermassive black holes shine brightly in X-rays. Some of this radiation comes from a surrounding disk, and most comes from the corona, pictured here as the white light at the base of a jet. This is one possible configuration for a corona — its actual shape is unclear.
The mystery of black holes
Black hole hunting satellite launched
New telescope to illuminate black holes
That light is getting stretched and blurred, and researchers are getting to see it all in unprecedented detail, said NASA in a news release issued today.
In this instance, the corona — a source of X-ray light that sits near a black hole — recently collapsed in toward the black hole thats named Markarian 335.
The NuSTAR telescope has been collecting X-rays from black holes and dying stars for the past two years.
The craft completed its primary mission earlier this year, and it was redirected to investigate Markarian 335 once scientists noticed that the black hole had become dramatically brighter. NuSTAR observed that Markarian 335s gravity sucked the coronas light, an illuminating action that NASA likened to someone shining a flashlight for astronomers.
Scientists can now see the corona lighting up material around the black hole, which allows them to study the most extreme light-bending effects of Albert Einsteins theory of general relativity, said NuSTARs principal investigator, Fiona Harrison, in the news release. She is with the California Institute of Technology.
As if NuSTARs observations and Einsteins theories arent mind-boggling enough, NASA says the black hole Markarian 335 spins so rapidly that space and time are dragged around with it.
The space agency says the new observations could help scientists better understand mysterious coronas and black holes, which are thought to be formed when massive stars collapse, creating such density that not even light can escape their intense gravitational pull.
Scientists believe supermassive black holes reside in the centers of galaxies. Some are more massive and rotate faster than others.

Fears that Ebola may reach Britain intensified last night after a passenger from Sierra Leone died at Gatwick airport.
The 72-year-old bayan escort woman became ill and collapsed after she left a Gambia Bird jet arriving from the West African country. A total of 826 people have died in Africa as a result of an outbreak of the deadly virus which began in February – 256 of these lived in Sierra Leone.

An airport worker told the Daily Mirror: ‘We’ve all seen how many people have died from Ebola, especially in Sierra Leone, and it’s terrifying. The woman was sweating buckets and vomiting.
‘Paramedics arrived to try to help her. The next thing everybody was there… emergency crews, airfield operations, even immigration.

The plane carrying the woman came from Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone – a country with the highest number of victims from the disease.
It stopped at Banjul in The Gambia before landing in Gatwick at 8.15am on Saturday after a five-hour flight.

Early symptoms include headache, fever, fatigue, muscle pain and a sore throat. In the more advanced stages of the virus victims can experience skin rashes; bleeding from the eyes, nose and mouth; as well as diarrhoea, vomiting, and internal bleeding.
Guidelines advise quarantining anyone who has caught the virus and disinfecting their homes.Contact with infected animals should be prevented and healthcare workers should wear protective clothing when caring for victims.The death rate from the outbreak has been constantly rising since the first case was detected in Guinea in February.
More than 339 people have died in Guinea, 233 in Sierra Leone, 156 in Liberia and one in Nigeria.The World Health Organisation has said the infection rate is moving faster than efforts to control the disease, prompting fears it could spread outside the continent. 
A lack of border control has allowed infected people who didn’t seek medical attention because of fear, suspicion or stigma to travel freely among in West Africa.
The fatality rate has been about 60 percent, and the scenes of patients bleeding from the eyes, mouth and ears has led many relatives to keep their sick family members at home instead.

escort bayan on nous convincing bills

Households will be whacked with a bill of £250billlion to upgrade Britain’s crumbling infrastructure and the poorest will be hit escort bayan hardest, MPs have warned. Major energy, water and transport projects have all been planned over the next 15 years, escort bayan but no regulator or government department has worked out whether households will be able to pay for them, they said. escort bayan Energy and water bills have been rising considerably faster than wages in recent years and this trend is likely escort bayan to continue, the Commons Public Accounts Committee warned.
Forking out: Upgrading Britains energy, road and rail infrastructure will cost billions over the next couple of decades But although pressure on cash-strapped families is likely to continue ‘no one seems to be sticking up for the consumers in all this,’ the committee’s chair Margaret Hodge said. The MPs urged government to step in to assess whether consumers can afford years of rising bills under plans to modernise Britain’s infrastructure.

The Treasury is planning to splash out more than £375billion to replace old assets that don’t comply with EU regulation, to support economic growth and prepare for the needs of a growing population. As much as two-thirds of this investment will be taken on by private companies, but paid for by consumers through utility bills and user charges such as rail fares. This is likely to lead to higher household bills, hitting poorest families hardest as they spend a higher proportion of their incomes on bills.
Energy bills alone are predicted to be 18 per cent higher in real terms in 2030 than in 2013, MPs warned.‘Energy and water bills have risen considerably faster than incomes in recent years, and high levels of new investment in infrastructure mean that bills and charges are likely to continue to rise significantly,’ the MPs said. The report said that ‘no one in Government is taking responsibility for assessing the overall impact of this investment on consumer bills and whether consumers will be able to afford to pay’.The cross-party committee said the Treasury should ensure that an assessment of the long-term affordability of bills is carried out.Margaret Hodge added: ‘Currently, consumers rely solely on Government and regulators to protect their interests. But it doesnt take much nous to work out that this is going to have a tough impact on the consumer.This is of particular concern given that the poorest households are hit hardest by increases in bills. Poorer households spend more of their incomes on household bills relative to richer households, meaning that funding infrastructure through bills is more regressive than doing so through taxation.
Warning: MPs said household bills will have to rise to pay for the planned infrastructure projects‘We are calling for the Treasury to produce and publish an assessment of the long-term affordability of bills across the sectors. They need to establish with departments and regulators who is responsible for what in each sector when it comes to assessing the long-term affordability of bills, and pull all the information together.‘Crucially, they need to assess the combined impact of increased bills on different household types, including those households most vulnerable to price rises.  The Commons Public Accounts Committee also warned that uncertainty caused by Government policies could potentially add to rising energy bills, with investment in new power stations being delayed and a ‘lack of urgency’ in replacing coal-fired plants.
The MPs heard there was planning consent for 15 gigawatts of gas-powered electricity generation but ‘investors are not going ahead due to a combination of unfavourable market prices for gas and electricity, and lack of certainty with regard to the Governments electricity market reforms’.The Committee said: ‘There is a challenge to the adequacy of supply which is made more difficult by current market interventions. There appears to be a lack of urgency in DECC (Department of Energy and Climate Change) when so much of our coal fired plants are being decommissioned before the end of 2015.’The MPs said Energy Secretary Ed Daveys department ‘needs to act quickly to give certainty and unlock much needed energy investment or the consequences for consumer bills will be worsened’.A DECC spokesman said: ‘Were preventing the predicted energy crunch by turning round a legacy of underinvestment and neglect. We have put reforms in place to drive up to £100billion of private sector investment in electricity between now and 2020 with £45billion invested already.‘If we do not take action now, we are at risk of becoming over-reliant on expensive imported gas and demand for electricity could double by 2050.‘Our analysis shows that household energy bills in 2020 are expected to be, on average, around £166 lower as a result of policies than they would have been without policies.’
Holding to account: Chair Margaret Hodge said no one was looking out for the consumer A Treasury spokesman said: ‘The country will pay a heavy price if we dont invest in the infrastructure essential for our future.‘The National Infrastructure Plan provides unprecedented certainty about what those investments are and making sure they are built in a way that delivers value for consumers and taxpayers is at the centre of it. The analysis in the PAC report fails to make a proper assessment of this.‘We uphold a robust independent regulatory regime with powers to ensure the interests of consumers are properly protected, including the establishment of a new Competition and Markets Authority this year.
‘We are cutting taxes and have taken targeted action to reduce bills. At the last Autumn Statement alone we announced a series of steps which are saving the average household around £50 on their energy bills, and a cap on rail fare increases saving quarter of a million annual season ticket holders an average of £25 this year.‘It is only because of the Governments credible economic plan that we have been able both to invest in infrastructure and take action on bills. The single biggest risk now would be abandoning that plan – which would mean worse infrastructure, higher bills, and a weaker economy.’But Richard Lloyd, executive director of consumer group Which?, said that the government has not gone far enough to ensure that costs are being kept down. ‘Despite calls from Which?, the NAO and the PAC, the Government has still not published an affordability assessment of the impact on consumer bills of infrastructure costs or made a convincing case that these are being kept under tight enough control, he said.‘Todays findings show why its vital that the Government and regulators get a tighter grip on the massive costs that are being passed on to household bills. We need to see rigorous, independent scrutiny to ensure that these costs are affordable and provide value for money for consumers.’

Of of therapeutic that escort

(CNN) — When origami enthusiast Uyen Nguyen discusses her art, you quickly understand that it is about a lot more escort than folding paper.
In many ways it has been therapeutic, she says. I find the process of folding paper to be almost meditative.
Origami can be used to create incredibly realistic forms, not just to the likeness of say, an insect, but down to the exact species of that particular insect with proportions of its body segment true to real life. At escort bayan the other end of the spectrum, you can mold paper to create the most abstract of forms beautiful because of their inherent structure instead of their likeness to real life forms. As someone interested in both science and art, I love that origami bridges the two.
Worldwide movement
Now Nguyen is bringing her passion to the people of New York City.
As someone interested in both science and art, I love that origami bridges the two.
Uyen Nguyen. origami artist
For the exhibition Surface to Structure: Folded Forms, which will take place at New Yorks Cooper Union from June 19 to July 4, Nguyen has gathered more than 130 works from 88 artists around the world.
The exhibition includes adorable rabbits folded by Malaysian origamist Ng Boon Choon, and a realistic rendering of a field mouse by American Bernie Peyton.
But it also includes St. Michael — The Archangel, a more ominous work by Vietnamese origamist Tran Trung Hieu. It shows a winged angel carrying a sword.
The exhibition marks the 55th anniversary of the 1959 exhibition Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures — the first origami exhibition held in the United States, which also took place inside Cooper Union.
So far Nguyen has raised more than $24,000 of the $32,000 she needs to cover the cost of shipping the works, organizing security and building display cases.
Origami can also be used to make avant-garde fashion creations, such as this one by Czech designer Hana Coufalova.Courtesy Christopher Bierlein.
Collectively the works demonstrate how origami artists are pushing the boundaries of technique and style.
Transcending language barriers
In the 1950s, Japanese organist Akira Yoshizawa helped popularize the art by creating a universal system of diagramming, which involved arrows and illustrations rather than words. His book allowed people across the world to learn the craft and to easily construct pre-existing designs.
But today artists have moved beyond that, with many using software that helps them dream up and then fold their elaborate works.
In many ways it has been therapeutic. I find the process of folding paper to be almost meditative.
Uyen Nguyen. origami artist
Most origami involves folding one sheet of paper into some final form, Nguyen says.
Modular origami uses multiple sheets of paper, folded into identical units, and takes these units and interlocks them, without cuts or adhesive, to obtain a final form that is usually very angular and representative of geometric solids. A couple of my designs add embellishments onto the surfaces of these polyhedra.
Regional variations in the art are becoming smaller and smaller as more people learn about origami via the Internet.
However, Nguyen says that she observed a few patterns among artists while curating her exhibition.
Vietnamese artists tend to be masters of wet folding, which creates soft, gentle bends rather than sharp creases.
Their styles can be somewhat minimalist, and there is so much beauty in their simplicity, she says. The Japanese tend to be more calculated and precise with their folding, which can allow for a huge amount of detail and complexity. I think the European style of origami lies somewhere between these two extremes.

(CNN) — When Maria Elza de Fatima learned the World Cup was escort bayan coming to Brazil in 2014, she thought the good times were soon to return.
Once the owner of a busy clothing bayan escort stall, the 59-year-old Sao Paulo resident had scraped around for work since her license expired and wasnt renewed by city bursa escort authorities.
But now the World Cup was coming to her home town — along with many thousands of fans, visitors and escort tourists — opportunities would abound, wouldnt they? It hasnt quite turned out that way.
De Fatima may be one of the lucky ones who has been able to secure an official World Cup job but what she can do and where she can work is limited.
Alongside roughly 600 others, she has been given permission to sell ice packs and soft drinks outside the Sao Paulo stadium. Only official FIFA partners are allowed to hock their wares here and within the arena. De Fatima is all too aware that many others havent been so fortunate.
Is Brazil ready for the 2014 World Cup?

Brazil 2014: World Cup and Economics
She recalls the days when as many 22,000 stall-owners plied their trade on Sao Paulos streets. A mere 600 jobs (although there are also temporary roles in other areas) isnt nearly enough for them, she laments.
This World Cup is not for the Brazilians, de Fatima replies when asked whether Sao Paulo has experienced the boon she expected. It is for the foreigners and FIFA friends.
Nationwide protests
De Fatima isnt the only disillusioned Brazilian.
A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that 61% of respondents felt hosting the World Cup would be a bad thing for their country.
According to Marina Mattar of the Sao Paulo Popular Committee of the World Cup, an umbrella organization for disparate protest groups in the city, the tournament will bring a lot of money into Brazil, but mainly to a well-connected few.
The World Cup is bringing benefits to Brazil but its to the economic and political elites — not to street vendors, not to small companies, entrepreneurs and not to workers in general, she said.
Key to this debate are the spiraling costs of building new stadia across the country to host matches during the World Cup.
Promotional literature released by the Brazilian government puts expenditure in terms of funds, loans and credit lines from the public purse for stadium projects at at $3.5 billion.
But a recent audit suggests the price has escalated to $4.2 billion.

The stadiums are not being built for ordinary people because the price of the tickets is very high and many people will not be able to go watch football any more.
Instead, the stadiums are in a way very good for big engineering companies to make money, Mattar said.
People have also been evicted from their homes to make way for projects relating to the World Cup and there has been the pacification of favelas, which has seen police forcibly occupy some of the poorer neighborhoods in the city, she added.
Such concerns are far from exclusive to Sao Paulo.

Rousseff defends Brazil World Cup preps
All across Brazil, street protests have raged in the last year while popular committee groups have also sprung up in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte and beyond.
A multitude of grievances, not all directly related to the world Cup, have driven this discontent — including rising transport prices, higher living costs, housing concerns and accusations of police brutality.
Fairness and equality are at the heart of these concerns.
While Brazil has grown rapidly since the turn of the century, creating a new middle class, inequality remains high and some fear the very poorest are being left behind.
According to the CIA World Factbook, Brazil ranks 17th out of 140 countries in terms of the highest levels of income disparity.
Protesters are asking why an emerging nation is spending billions on hosting a football tournament when that money could be better directed towards alleviating poverty.
It is unacceptable to build a mega event that will provide high profits to FIFA … while there are serious problems of social inequality in the country, said Jean Marcelo, an activist with the student protest group Domino Publico.
The World Cup reaffirms an existing logic that rules the Brazilian government. Its a logic benefiting big businesses and a small elite who occupy the top of the social pyramid, he added.

But with new roads, airports and stadiums being built, all of which have brought jobs and improvements to the countrys infrastructure, there are many who say the initial outlay, however eye-watering, will be worth it in the long term.
The Brazilian government estimates that 710,000 temporary and permanent jobs will be created during the tournament while fan spending alone is expected to total $13 billion.
On top of that, many Brazilian cities see the exposure they will gain hosting matches as an opportunity to position themselves as attractive destinations to potential investors and tourists now and in the future.
A World Cup for all?
There has been significant investment in urban mobility projects, in airport modernization projects, in port modernization projects, telecommunications infrastructure and security infrastructure, Brazils deputy sports minister Luis Fernandes told CNN.
You have to remember that Brazil is still a developing nation… as well as providing jobs for hundreds of thousands of Brazilians, these investments will benefit people in terms of the services provided, he added.
The fans who come to the World Cup wont be taking back with them the new urban transport solutions or airport extensions, Fernandes said.

Paulo Esteves, general supervisor at Rio de Janeiro-based think-tank, the BRICS Policy Center, agrees with this viewpoint.
In a way, what we are seeing are investments that otherwise do not take place, he said. The World Cup has been a kind of catalyst for this.
The government did not take money from health or transportation to invest in stadiums. Investments in public health and transportation will go on and on.
Esteves is quick to add, however, that this doesnt mean public grievances are without merit, and believes the World Cup has created a platform for groups and people dissatisfied with how Brazil is developing as to unite and make their voices heard.
In recent weeks teachers, metro workers and bus drivers have gone on strike demanding better pay and conditions. Others have taken to the streets to campaign for better housing.
Rather than highlighting the negatives of hosting a football tournament, these protests are really talking about the other side of economic modernization in Brazil, Esteves said.
The World Cup is not a target per se but it is an opportunity to vocalize and make stronger … claims for strengthening the process around political and social inclusion.
However, Mattar and others in protest movements maintain their opposition to the World Cup is based on principled rejection of spending decisions tied to what they regard as an elitist, closed event.
Yet, with billions of dollars already spent and the tournament about to start, they are realistic about what opposition can now achieve.
Still, Mattar hopes the anger felt by many Brazilians will reach the watching world and provide lessons for future hosts of big sporting events, including the next two World Cup host countries.
We hope our legacy will be to show to people in Russia, Qatar and maybe in other places that these events and the way they are organized (make it) impossible they will bring any benefits, Mattar said.

By escort bayan and results triumphalist

(CNN) — The Obama administration likely will succumb to growing pressure to do something bayan escort kinetic and dramatic in Iraq, and when it does, it will most likely be air and missile strikes against ISIS bayan escort ankara targets. This could relieve the political pressure on the President: His critics continue to blame him for abdicating U.S. leadership in Syria and in Iraq –which now faces the advancing extremist militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
But answering the political mail in Washington is not the same thing as dealing with, let alone resolving, the complex issues on the ground that have led to this crisis. To do that would require a comprehensive reengagement strategy, even without boots on the ground. And President Barack Obama should not be drawn into a veritable Iraq war III.
Aaron David Miller
Most of Obamas detractors engage in what I call woulda/coulda/shoulda criticism. That is to say, if the President had only invested more time and effort in negotiating a status of forces agreement with the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, left a residual presence there, enforced his chemical weapons red line in Syria and backed the moderate opposition there, we wouldnt be seeing the ISIS jihadi rampage playing out in both countries.
But given the limited amount of intervention this administration, Congress, and the public would support, even under the best of circumstances, the U.S. could not have stopped the dynamic that is occurring.
We cannot hold Iraqs hand forever, nor end Syrias civil war without a major military commitment. And the longer the Syrian conflict continued, the more of a boon the conflict would provide to jihadi elements who fed off its violence and sectarian character.
As for Iraq, the al-Maliki governments insistence on maintaining Shia dominance and privilege, and repressing Sunnis, created the perfect ferment for ISISs spread. No amount of U.S. military power summoned by any administration could have compensated for this kind of bad sectarian governance. That and the weak institutions of the Iraqi state have allowed ISIS to thrive.
No matter how much progress the U.S. made in Iraq between 2003 and 2011, the dysfunction that now shapes Iraqs future was driven by factors set into motion by the very act of the invasion, Iraqs nature and its location. And those same factors limit now what the U.S. can do; they should make Washington wary of getting sucked back in.
Back to Iraq: What can – and should – the U.S. do now?
Malikis sectarian dominance

Obama: Up to Iraq to solve its problems
Meet the terrorists who scare Al-Qaeda
How can you expect stability and security in a country where the political contract between the governed and those who govern is completely skewed in the direction of the Shia community? But thats what you have with Nuri al-Maliki; and thats unlikely to change. Shia repression has left Sunnis feeling disenfranchised — one reason why violence has surged in the last year — and this is why its hard to get Sunni elements of the military to fight and resist ISIS moves. Its also why some key Sunni elements are reportedly in league with the ISIS jihadis.
Its a reason to be careful about backing a government not committed to serious power sharing and reform, let alone to use direct U.S. military intervention to defend it. The U.S. couldnt build the new Iraq on the backs of American military power before it was clear that al-Maliki was a Shia triumphalist. How are we to do it today when its clear that he is?
The neighbors
Geography is destiny. This isnt Americas neighborhood: It does not have the same kind of stake as those who live there. The U.S. may be committed to a nonsectarian, pluralist, democratic Iraq where everybody gets along in one big happy family. But Iran and Saudi Arabia envision very different outcomes, and they will act in ways detrimental to our interests.
Iran is worried about ISIS to be sure. But Iran knows that its long-term interests depend on a stable Iraq under Shia dominance. That means that while it will assist al-Maliki, it wont pressure him to reform. The Saudis, on the other hand, cant abide al-Maliki and while they are worried about the Sunni jihadis, they see some merit in weakening the Prime Minister. Both Tehran and Riyadh will continue to see Iraq as a battleground to check the others influence and to promote their side in a Sunni-Shia war. Iraqs stability and the U.S.s altruistic vision of Iraqs future will be the casualties.
The Syrian civil war
Any U.S. strategy that deals with Iraq in isolation will fail to get at a main sources of the ISIS threat. The Syrian civil war was a godsend for these jihadi groups. And unless the United States is prepared to expand its area of operations and to develop a sustained, aggressive strategy to contain if not destroy the ISIS presence in Syria, any effort in Iraq will at best produce a short-term success. Having willfully avoided militarizing the U.S. role in Syria, the President may well go ahead and do so now, with all the risks of mission creep. Attacking ISIS will also help Bashar al-Assad in Syria and Iran in Iraq.
A serious strategy
And that brings us to the most difficult dimension of this entire problem. Without a serious and sustained strategy that has a military, counterterrorism, political and economic component, including mobilizing the international community, its hard to see how the Obama administration can realistically put these Humpty Dumptys back together again. To do that would mean American involvement — for starters CIA or special forces in an advisory capacity, most likely functioning clandestinely.
Airstrikes, even if they worked to check ISIS, would have to be used repeatedly over time. And more training for the Iraqi military — most likely with advisers on the ground to instruct in the use of sophisticated military equipment — would be necessary. And despite all of this, its likely that ISIS may still be able to secure enclaves in Iraq.
Havent we seen this movie before? It was called Iraq 2003-2011, and it clearly didnt have a happy ending.
So, Mr. President, you probably have no other choice but to get sucked back into Iraq with military strikes. It might even have positive short-term results. But it likely wont over time. Triumphalist Shia, unhappy Sunnis, Iranian influence, and Kurdish separatists will guarantee it. Iraq was a trap for America once before. It will be again.
