    ‘US-led coalition warplanes conducted more than 73 airstrikes on Raqqa city in the last 48 hours’, – and still struggling to capture the city. A lot has been said about Air Superiority, about Precision Weapons, – where are they now?

      I think, they have problems to find their targets.

      To find a lone sniper, a VBIED before it starts up, a deep tunnel, that is not easy, see Mosul. The presence of civillians complicates bombing.

      As IS now retains only some 25% of the city, SDF is doing well, the more so when one considers SDF already took the old city, which was last in Mosul.
