(Photo: Wikimedia/Creative Commons)This month alone, "the United States delivered nearly 100 Hellfire missiles together with hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition and M4 rifles" to the Iraqi government, the U.S. Embassy to Iraq revealed Sunday.

In a public statement, the U.S. Embassy claimed the shipments were sent to aid the Iraqi government and military's so-called "counter-terrorism" operations targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Yet, experts have warned that the ongoingn flow of U.S. weapons into Iraq has only escalated political and sectarian violence in the country and region that was set in motion by the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

The U.S. Embassy indicated more weapons shipments will soon follow.
