Wayne Brittenden's Counterpoint
Wayne Brittenden looks at the forces at play and some little known history. Iraq's Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's rejected calls from the US and Europe for a more inclusive government to counter the alarming insurgency of disaffected Sunnis and Jihadists, known as either ISIS - the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIL - the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. Then Wallace Chapman speaks with Kevin Martin, well known in the US media as a commentator on international conflict. He's also Executive Director of the independent organisation Peace Action.
