    I hope as the operation in Syria comes to an end Iraq will give the go-ahead for the destruction of the ISIS on its territory. So far, it is impractical except that single point strikes. After all, the supply is a thin thing and ammunition delivered with such difficulty is not worth squandering. You shouldn't chase two birds with one stone, we passed.

      The Iraqi government is completely dependent on the United States. Do not expect that, they will go for it.

        I will add that the mattress makers took control of the Tishrin dam in Syria (and this is already ground forces, you cannot bomb them like ISIS), so the Kurds are also a dark horse in this war and everything is much more complicated in reality and all the most serious is yet to come, in both Iraq and Syria.

      This can be done solely to prevent Iranians from entering Iraq.

    Units of the Iraqi army liberated the Ash-Shai region in Anbar province from the Daesh group, destroying about 70 militants,

    Then, when these devils were just beginning to seize territories, Iraqi units threw weapons and equipment and fled. And now, to liberate these territories, one centimeter after a centimeter has suffered serious losses.

      Many former officers of the Iraqi army are fighting on the side of IS, and the backbone of this quasi-state entity (although I prefer the term "cancer") is stubborn ideological radicals with good military training and rich combat experience. In addition, they manage the process, albeit not good ones, but not the stupidest people. So it won't be an easy walk.

        Alyosha, Greetings! When these ghouls started the offensive, there were about 3-4 thousand of them. Only in Mosul did 30 thousandth corps (2 divisions and an armored brigade) abandon equipment, leaving all their weapons and equipment. Now there are tens of thousands of them, well armed. There will be a sea of ​​blood. Moreover, it is the hardest to fight with fanatics.

    How cheerfully the Iraqis began to act against the ISIS ... Previously, they were just running away from them, but now ... It feels like there were some of our advisers, or maybe they just stopped listening to Western "friends" ...

      the feeling that there could not have been without our advisers

      You are partly right. A coordination center has opened in Baghdad, and for sure ours share information explored, including from satellites. Together, by definition, it’s easier to strangle reptiles! hi

    They have a strange war there .. They hammer each other not childishly, Iraqis seem to even use TOS but the losses of the militants are negligible and there are never corpses on the video. The conflict in 2014 in the Donbass seems to be several times smaller but much more intense, even the boilers turned out to be done.

    I don’t understand what to capture there. Judging by the map, most of the province is an obscure desert, one major road to the entire province.

      And there, all the battles are fought only for control over roads and intersections and villages on them. Well, plus infrastructure facilities such as dams, refineries, oil rigs. In fact, they took control of a section of the road, nothing more ...

    Regarding the fact that we then go to Iraq - I think Iraq was left to Iran, and we have Libya as the next country on the list of liberation. There is no less oil, and Italy is at hand and access to Africa.
