Good Luck.
The USA has started targeting forces the Islamic State (IS) northern Iraq. Several US air strikes have taken heavy weaponry that the Islamic State captured the Iraqi army. President Obama said the new attacks are to protect American residents Erbil, the capital Iraq's autonomous Kurdistan region. IS recently changed its name ISIS (the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria). The group now controls a quarter Iraq (including the country's largest dam), and a third Syria. Mr Obama made it clear that there would be no boots the ground. He said: "Even as we support Iraqis as they take the fight these terrorists, American combat troops will not be returning to fight Iraq."

Another reason the air strikes the IS is to protect Iraq's Yazidi people and other minority groups. The Yazidis are ethnically Kurdish. Their religion includes elements Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Zoroastrianism. The IS told the Yazidis to convert Islam, pay a tax, or face death. Earlier this week the UN warned a humanitarian catastrophe the possibility ethnic cleansing the hands of the IS. The IS have reportedly taken hundreds Yazidi women hostage. Obama said the latest US military action is also, "a humanitarian effort to help save thousands [Yazidis] who are trapped a mountain food and water and facing almost certain death".
