Victory in Mosul

Before ISIS attack in Iraq three years ago, Mosul was the second largest city in the country.  Then it was conquered by ISIS.  Now, after a battle that lasted more than six months, the city is finally free from ISIS.  There may still be some terrorists hidden in the city, but the Iraqi army now controls the entire place.

This was a massive undertaking.  Urban warfare is dangerous, difficult and costly.  Thousands died in the battle for Mosul.  The Iraqis and the US forces that helped them deserve congratulations for this major victory.  As of today, there are no longer any major cities in Iraq under the control of the terrorist thugs. 

The day of total victory over ISIS is approaching.  The caliphate will soon be a footnote in history.
