Now it looks like a big win for ISIS, but what can President Trump do after the U.S. pull-out from Northeast Syria? The loss of intel on the ground from our abandoned Kurdish allies, the release/escape of terrorist prisoners, and the perception of U.S. apathy, creates conditions for an Islamic State revival. Is there a U.S. position somewhere between warmongering and isolationism?
U.S.-led military coalition, with help from Iraqi Counter-Terrorism forces, carpet bombs what may be the last major concentration of ISIS fighters — the previously-dominant “Islamic State,” reduced to a desperate remnant, hiding on an island in the middle of a river. In seconds the ISIS refuge became an island of fire.
