Just 300 ISIS jihadis held Ramadi for 7 months against Iraqi force of 10,000

The ISIS stronghold of Ramadi has been ‘fully liberated’ by 10,000 Iraqi soldiers who took six days to wrestle the city from just 300 jihadis.

The extremists locked themselves into a government complex yesterday, from where they tried to hold off an advancing army backed by US-led airstrikes.

They stopped firing at 8am this morning, said Brigadier General Ahmed al-Belawi, who believes they were either killed or have escaped.

    Perhaps the bribes for both sides were unavoidably delayed until now.

    this just more of the same we saw in afghanistan and years ago in south vietnam. A weak corrupt government force being pushed to fight against a group that many are feeling no belligerence for. Pull out .totally. and quarantine the entire mess. stop all immigration and army age men migrating.,

      The U.S. has sure shown much discernment in choosing its allies.

    Those patriotic Iraqis are highly motivated to take back their country.
    I see all that training and equipment we gave them was put to good use.
    Well done Iraqis!
    You fought like the pig dog slaves of Allah that you are.
    Mazel tov!

    Did we just witness a shakedown of ISIS?
    Pay the generals, and they pay the officers, who pay the NCOs who pay the privates.
    Those ISIS fighters were ransomed, and then allowed to escape.

    Now Iraq has an insurgency in Ramadi to deal with. Good luck with that. They just liberated a city that will have population zero, soon.

  • Cut the Iraqis off.
