TIKRIT Men's Air Jordan 5 Retro Premium Bordeaux Wine For Sale , Iraq, March 16 (Xinhua) -- A top Iraqi army officer said on Monday that Iraqi troops need U.S.-led coalition air support to recapture the city of Tikrit, after two weeks of a major offensive stalled against Islamic State (IS) militants.

"The Iraqi security forces need coalition assistance to complete the liberation of Tikrit as the IS militant group planted thousands of bombs to defend their last redoubt in Tikrit," said Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, head of the Operations Command of Salahudin province.

Al-Saadi, whose command is responsible for the security in the province , said a request had been made to the Defense Ministry to demand intervention of coalition air support.

"The U.S.-led coalition have advanced equipment to locate the targets accurately and have advanced technology and sophisticated weapons that can reduce by far the time and casualties of clearing the city," he said.

The campaign to recapture Tikrit has been stalled due to the presence of IS booby traps and the Iraqi security forces' intention to limit casualties.

"The reason behind the stall of the operations to free Tikrit is that the leaders do not want their units to sustain heavy casualties, and they prefer to prolong the siege of the city to force the IS militants either to surrender of be killed," a federal police colonel said.

"Hundreds of improvised explosive devices had been planted at the entrances to the city and the main streets, important buildings," the officer told Xinhua on condition of anonymity. "Even residential houses were booby-trapped."

Some 30 Cheap Air Jordan 5 Premium Bordeaux ,000 Iraqi troops and thousands of allied Shiite and Sunni militias have been involved in the two-week operation to recapture Tikrit and other key towns and villages in the northern part of Salahudin province from IS militants.

However, they have been moving slowly and cautiously amid sporadic clashes with the militants, including a large number of IS snipers, while dealing with hundreds of roadside bombs and booby-trapped houses.

Much of Salahudin province has been under IS control since June 2014, after bloody clashes broke out between Iraqi security forces and the group.

When heads of state and government end their tenures, some choose to become speakers, consultants or lobbyists, cashing in notable incomes that are sometimes much more than their previous salaries.

And China has become one of their major destinations.

In December, former British prime minister Tony Blair traveled across China giving speeches and meeting officials and business tycoons.

As part of this tour, he appeared in Beijing along with Andrew Liveris Air Jordan 5 Premium Bordeaux For Sale , chairman, president and CEO of the US Dow Chemical Company, and visited Science and Technology Minister Wan Gang, China Petroleum and Chemical Corp chairman Fu Chengyu and China National Petroleum Corporation chairman Zhou Jiping, and discussed cooperation on clean energy.

It's unclear whether the Dow visit was entirely a coincidence. A 2012 report by the Financial Times alleged that Dow had paid Blair, or Tony Blair Associates (TBA) Air Jordan 5 Premium Wine For Sale , his private consulting company, for consultancy work.

These were just some of his appearances in China after he left Downing Street in June 2007. And he is not the only official to be involved in paid lectures and activities after their government life.

On November 18, former US president Bill Clinton made a keynote speech at the Caijing Annual Conference 2014 in Beijing, calling for more charity engagement of non-governmental organizations and for inequality to be reduced.

A day before on November 17, he appeared at an enterprise leaders summit in Guangzhou. A staff member from the public relations department of Caijing magazine said they paid Clinton for his presence but declined to reveal how much. An ifeng report said payments for Clinton's two speeches totaled at least $1 million.

Since leaving the White House in 2001, Clinton has made more than 500 speeches across the world and raked in as much as $106 million in speaking fees Air Jordan 5s Premium Bordeaux , said a May CNN report.

Clinton was reportedly paid $750,000 by the telecom giant Ericsson to address its employees in Hong Kong in November 2011. In the same month, he earned $550,000 from a speech given to Huatuo CEO Forum, a business conference in Shanghai.

Yu Mingyang, a professor of brand marketing at Shanghai Jiao Tong University Air Jordan 5s Premium Wine , said opening up and globalization has led to some Chinese enterprises favoring foreign speakers, especially retired leaders.

"Some big enterprises expect to obtain some useful guiding messages concerning government policy from these retired officials, who are believed to have access to relevant reliable sources," Yu told the Global Times.

However, these speeches are not always warmly welcomed.

A speech entitled "From Great to Excellent" given by Blair at a VIP banquet on November 6, 2007 in Dongguan Air Jordan 5 Retro Premium Bordeaux , South China's Guangdong Province, was widely criticized as being "empty" and "money-sucking" by domestic media. The host, a leading property developer in Dongguan, was found to have paid Blair $300,000 for the three-hour visit to the city, which was equivalent to nearly his annual salary as prime minister.

Yu attributes this to organizers' vanity.

"I have studied most of the remarks or speeches made by these people and found that they are tactful but rarely have new stuff Air Jordan 5 Retro Premium Wine ," Yu said, noting that the organizers or sponsors care much more about inviting influential celebrities than seeking valuable information.

But the appearance of retired foreign leaders in various conferences or negotiations still seems to be on the rise.
