    Incredibly rapid progress; very nice and well done.

    ISIS were invincible a few months back when they had their pay masters protecting them, but look at them now.

    ISIS really have been thrown to the wolves as sacrificial lambs by the US —- I honestly do not know which group is the worst between them now !!; one thing is for sure, between the ISIS sacrifice, the breaking of the Iranian nuclear deal, the sanction on Russia that hurt European businesses and and; the US have ZERO credibility left.
