No, We’re Not Winning the War on ISIS

It’s almost exactly a year ago that the American military campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria began. On August 8, 2014, American warplanes began bombing ISIS positions in Iraq, a campaign that soon expanded to Syria as well.

How’s it going? Optimists can take heart from the finding of one research organization that over the past yearISIS has lost 9.4% of its territory, mainly in northern Syria (where the Kurds have been on the offensive) and around Tikrit, Iraq (where the offensive was led by Iranian-backed militias supported by Iraqi security forces). True, but that ignores the fact that ISIS continues to control a sprawling pseudo-state stretching from the vicinity of Homs and Aleppo in Syria to Mosul and Ramadi in Iraq.

      I liked it myself, and cherry pie is my favorite (though I suppose BCF could have chosen apple to make the story more America-centric).

    • Mine too;)

    The wimpy response of Obama (Ooh, civilians!) is a sure guarantee of at best a stalemate.
