When Mosul falls, Will Assyria Rise?

Excerpts: “The Assyrians know that they stand on the knife’s edge of events. A very narrow window of opportunity will open to them when Mosul falls. But they must be ready to act, and act swiftly when the time comes. To that end Assyrian military forces, not tied to either the Shia militias or Kurdish Peshmerga forces, have over the past three years moved into key positions in the area. These positions will provide Assyrian forces with jumping-off points to seize and secure strategic ground and facilities and, if necessary, to confront any non-Assyrian force attempting to occupy the ANP.”
