This is coolbert:
The Caliphate is at hand. Islamic ISIL fighters controlling a contiguous territory from which they cannot be dislodged!
"Iraq militants take Syria-border post in drive for caliphate"
"Sunni fighters seized a border post on the Iraq-Syria frontier, security sources said on Saturday, smashing a line drawn by colonial powers almost a century ago and potentially creating an Islamic Caliphate from the Mediterranean Sea to Iran."
"The militants, led by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), first moved into the nearby town of al-Qaim on Friday, pushing out security forces, the sources said."
"Once border guards heard that al-Qaim had fallen, they left their posts and militants moved in"
Presumably these border guards are Alawites loyal to the Syrian government of Assad.
NOT even a fight occurring? The guards just took off and fled?
