 ◎ ニューヨーク・タイムズ : Humanitarian Crisis Grows as Iraqis Flee ISIS Threat
 (17日付け)⇒ http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/18/world/middleeast/as-iraqis-flee-anbar-province-and-isis-questions-persist-on-role-of-shiite-militias.html?mabReward=CTM&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&region=CColumn&module=Recommendation&src=rechp&WT.nav=RecEngine&_r=0

 ・ In Anbar, the government’s struggles also raise anew the question that has become a difficult one for American military planners advising the Iraqi government and coordinating an intensified campaign of coalition airstrikes: What role, if any, should Shiite militias, backed by Iran, play in the fight for the Sunni heartland of Anbar?

 The militias, which played an important role in the recent victory in Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown, have been absent, for the most part, from the fighting in Anbar. This is partly because of demands by American officials, who worry that the presence of militias, despite their fighting prowess, could raise sectarian tensions in Sunni-dominated Anbar.

 ・ American officials have warned that the city could fall, and have played down the strategic significance of Ramadi to the efforts of the American-led coalition against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Iraqi government officials and security officers say the situation in the city is critical, with constant fighting, but are confident that it can be defended.
