Second Iraq city falls to militants

June 11, 2014  Associated Press

Al-Qaeda-inspired militants seized effective control Wednesday of Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit, expanding their offensive closer to the Iraqi capital as soldiers and security forces abandoned their posts following clashes with the insurgents.
Fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant took control a day earlier of much of Mosul, the country's second-largest city, in a major blow to the authority of the country's Shiite government and a sign of Iraq's reversals since U.S. forces withdrew in late 2011.

Will the fires start this week? Is June 13, 2014 a significant date in the timeline of Jeremiah's judgments?
