  1. Congratulation to iraki army. With many casualties in this terrorist group, they should be few, so, it is time to release all the country.

  2. Luis you do not understand that the Iraqi forces progress has been very slow and it probably will continue to be very slow, and that means it is going to take years of more fighting before Iraqi forces could possibly release all of the country.
