    But the United States is being more careful about sending additional weapons and ammunition to Iraq, because of a lack of confidence in the Iraqi troops, the defense official said.

    ISIS captures more ground

    Militant fighters believed to be ISIS have seized the Baiji oil refinery, the largest in Iraq, three Iraqi security sources told CNN Monday.

    Earlier in the day, an Iraqi military spokesman had said that an attack was under way, but had been repelled by security forces. CNN cannot independently confirm either claim.

    The Baiji refinery is a key strategic resource because it refines much of the fuel needed for internal consumption. There are already long lines at many gas stations across the country.

    ISIS militants also advanced toward Baghdad over the weekend from the north and the west. At least 70% of Anbar province is now under the control of ISIS, two security officials in the region told CNN.

    ISIS is on a mission to create an Islamic state across Sunni areas of Iraq and in Syria.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    It is over, by design. What better way to spit on your predecessor, and all of those who willingly paid the ultimate price, than letting your muslim brethren burn the country to the ground?
