  1. For well over a month Iraqi Forces already have been encircling and besieging Mosul, so Abadi’s talk is just political conference talk to the world media. Militarily wise Abadi will have to first liberate the smaller objective of Ramadi so he will then have enough soldiers so he can later liberate a larger objective of Mosul.

  2. nice idea iraqi liberate largest area first like mosul and then ramadi afterward.

    liberation mosul will destroy isil mentality completely.

    just wondering, why iraqi not send small elite soldiers into town occupied by isil?

    this elite soldiers then can shoot isil leaders in town, make a riot in town, and trying drop mentality the member ofnthe rats of wahabi isil.

    i believe its easy for the elite soldier to infiltrate the town because the know every detail in the town…

  3. It has now been one week and there has been absolutely NO liberation activity of Mosul, so Abadi was just talking political rubbish to the media before the conference. As I mentioned, Abadi will have to first liberate the smaller objective of Ramadi so he will then have enough soldiers so he can later liberate a larger objective of Mosul.

  4. Hey previous poster, Iraq’s elite soldiers and elite police units already had been in Ramadi. They were forced to retreat because they did not have enough anti-tank weapons to counter the massive assault from ISIS’s armoured suicide vehicles which were packed with explosives. Now that the elite forces do have thousands of recently issued US AT4 anti-tank missiles to counter ISIS’s armoured suicide vehicles they can now go back to Ramadi to liberate it. These US supplied AT4 anti-tank missiles will be needed to liberate Mosul maybe in a few months time but first Ramadi needs to be fully liberated so Iraq will have enough soldiers to liberate Mosul.
