Battle of Tikrit won – ISIS dislodged – is Mosul next?

  • Unlikely at any time soon - Mosul complicated - several times bigger than Tikrit & it's the base of ISIS in Iraq.
  • And while Mosul is a diverse city, it has a strong Sunni core.
  • Therefore, the governor of Mosul refuses to allow Shia-led (Iran-backed) intervention, and distrusts the US-backed Iraqi army (which is Shia).
