The U.S. is sending 275 troops to Baghdad, to support its embassy staff. And there's good reason for concern, as ISIS marches south towards the capital. In Baghdad, people are feeling the impact of this growing insurgency. ISIS is gaining more ground, moving closer to Baghdad. The U.S. Embassy there fortifying security, more U.S. Marines being brought in. Some staffers, being evacuated, taken into other, safer Iraqi cities. On the capital's streets outside, an Iraqi policeman nervously eyes passing cars, busier than the past few days, fears the city is about to be engulfed in fighting, subsiding, but not gone. Prices in food markets are up, potatoes from 80-cents to $1.50 this lady says. But it's cooking gas up five fold that really upsets her, why, she says, everything is working fine. Stalls are well stocked, on surface, almost like normal, but it's not. This egg supplier tells us, for the first time ever, officials are clamping down on prices as the government tries to stave off panic and price gouging. It seems though, almost the least of their worries. The imminent threat from the north leaves the Iraqi Government desperate for soldiers, calling for volunteers. Hundreds of civilians, young and old, marching through the streets of Baghdad, now having to defend their country. And in the north, ISIS taking the town of Tal Afar. The terrorists possibly gaining control over its Army base. Which could mean more armored vehicles, weapons and ammunition up for grabs, some of the weaponry provided by the U.S. Asking his identity be concealed, CNN's Arwa Damon interviewed an Iraqi Colonel who says his unit alone left behind "25 Humvees, 80 other vehicles and trucks, 10 snipe rifles and 20 rocket launchers when they fled. "If Baghdad falls, if the central government falls, a disaster awaits us of monumental proportions," says Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Caroline. With minimal resources, the Iraqi military uses aerial strikes to target ISIS positions in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city. "Now is more dangerous than before," says Ayad Allawi, former Prime Minister of Iraq. "This will not be restricted to the boundaries of this county, the terrorism would spill over and spread to the world at large." The Iraqi Air Force claims 200 ISIS fighters killed so far. ISIS's advance seems slowed but far from over, their aim, this city.
