It seems as though the battle in Iraq with ISIS has been rumbling on for months amidst assurances that it was coming to an end, but the Prime Minister of Iraq recently said that he was fairly confident that it actually is now almost at an end.

Haider al-Abadi made the comments earlier in the week as the assault on Mosul continued:
At the moment we are at a very important juncture where Daesh is on the retreat. We in Iraq have been killing Daesh, removing them from our land. We are killing their aim so that recruits are minimal at the moment.
In Iraq the defeat is sure, it’s definite. We’ll finish the job in a very short time – it’s within reach… within the next few weeks. We are defeating them militarily… we need the efforts of others to flush them out in Syria and other places.
They are trying to attract more recruits by doing these criminal acts like the Westminster attack. It’s like somebody who is dying and is just trying to flex his muscle at the last moment. The only way forward is to kill their home – just to finish them. Then they will not have any hope to commit such criminal acts.
Let’s hope that al-Abadi knows what he’s talking and we’ll be celebrating ISIS getting battered out of Iraq. Even though we’ll still have to get them out of Syria, that’s going to be one hell of a milestone in the fight against terror.
