Remaining ISIS in Ramadi Lack ‘Oomph’ to Repel Iraqi Forces, Says U.S.

The spokesman for U.S. operations against ISIS in Iraq said remaining jihadists in Ramadi probably don’t have the “oomph” to repel Iraqi forces.

Col. Steve Warren, spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, told reporters via teleconference from Baghdad that “the Iraqi security forces have achieved considerable success in Ramadi.”

    I dunno….I believe in establishing a cordon, a fire perimeter around the target…..then when the rats bolt you “bag” them….as a rat catcher would…..that way the rats don’t escape to fight another day.

    You ‘HooRahh ‘ boys lack a Leader.
