      It seems that if it were not for the American coalition, then things in Iraq would have gone faster.

    The country that fought with Iran is asking for help in attacking ONE city. Not bad mattresses worked.

      The country that fought with Iran was Sunni. And with a stretch, we can assume that now that country has moved under the black banners. So that country is just in that city. And which is characteristic, it is again fighting with Iran (well, among others).

    Really clean up? Are you kidding . With the first successes, the Iraqis will fly from the sky from the coalition, or the shaitans will "suddenly" have operational plans. The slaughter was and will be stupid.

    It is necessary to clean Mosul, but first shut off the ISIS oxygen, and for this take an airfield! In general, Iraqis are great!

    with the support of the air force a US-led coalition of countries
    And open at least four fronts with the Americans, there will be little sense. Well, they will capture Mosul, dance their victory, and then what? The Americans in Iraq need "controlled chaos" and they will maintain this state. They will begin to strangle ISIS "specifically" and support them. Well these are the Americans.

    Iraq is the territory of the United States, they just need peace and stability there. It is in Syria and Iran that they need a war, here it should not be confused. Prior to US intervention, ISIS already covered Baghdad.
