We may control the Air, but the enemy controls the airwaves (Media).
The Main Stream media is all abuzz and predicting doom in the Iraqi Governments fight against ISIS in Tikrit. The reason they are predicting doom and gloom is they say the Sunni locals will side with ISIS and make the fight even harder for the Iraqi government. But what they do not talk about is the Sunni militias helping in the fight to regain control of Tikrit. The Jabouri Tribe is one of those militias. They are local to Tikrit and they have strong belief in Government. The Jabbour militia is doing a great job and (click here) showing off their new Iranian sniper rifles.
Many Tribes share Jabbouri belief in government and security, they do not share the ISIS extremist mentalities and they do not regard ISIS as Muslim. The featured image of the woman holding here 2 rifles shows that the Jabbour tribe is progressive and women here do have some rights.
One article I found (here) talks about what happened when ISIS came into Dhuluiya:
ISIS ordered the Jubbouri to join them and to kill 30 members of their tribe — army officers and doctors — as punishment for working with the Shiite-dominated government of former Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki, which many Sunnis despised.
“They said, ‘We came to liberate you from this injustice and oppression caused by Maliki’s rule,’ ” says Ahmed.
The Jubbouris were outraged. Sheikh Mawloud Awad Hassoun says the tribe believes in peaceful co-existence. A lot of them are educated — engineers and lawyers.
Analysis of the 30 September 2013 BBC Panorama documentary 'Saving Syria's Children' and related BBC News reports, contending that sequences filmed by BBC personnel and others at Atareb Hospital, Aleppo on 26 August 2013 purporting to show the aftermath of an incendiary bomb attack on a nearby school are largely, if not entirely, staged.
