Daesh Losing Grip

“Iraqi government forces fighting so-called Islamic State (IS) in Mosul have reached the banks of the Tigris river in the city for the first time.”
 
See Mosul battle: Iraqi government forces reach Tigris river
It’s taken some months, but nearly half of Mosul has been “liberated” from Daesh. Too bad Iraq didn’t have the fortitude to protect it from Daesh years ago.

Anyway, the end of Daesh is near. In Mosul, they are surrounded, with only the tiniest opportunities for resupply/reinforcement. In Syria, Raqqa will soon be in a similar state. Daesh is collapsing while taking as many lives as possible with it. The end can’t come too soon for these murdering bastards. â…” of East Mosul has been liberated. The west side has been surrounded. Once the river is controlled, the west side will collapse in good order. This is not Stalingrad. There is no one on the outside risking everything to send in supplies/reinforcements. The surrounding forces have strength, depth and lots of experience. The remainders of Daesh have nothing but a “death wish”. Give them what they want…

    In other news, no one really cares out the Middle East Pogsey. What is the point of you addressing these actions anyways? You certainly are no Zbigniew Brzezinski,
