  1. I am certain that Iraqi forces destroyed a lot of the city with its artillery and airstrikes but it was necessary to do that to kill ISIS as ISIS was using the buildings for shelter.

    • Dear EddySaf, you are now toeing my line of action. The carpet bombing. If Iraq or Syria want to destroy and obliterate terrorism, they should start carpet bombings of areas under control of terrorists -moderate or hardcore (western and arab definition of terrorists based on their support) and carpet bombing is needed as without the civilian support, no third party can win over vast land and occupy huge arms. I have seen on tv news how the civilians of these terrorist occupied areas celebrating the fall of cities/towns/villages to terrorists, massacre of innocents soldiers, Christians, yezdis, Shia, Druze, Alawites, atheists, etc. And how these civilians were celebrating the murres of foreign captives.

  2. Laying a carpet of bombs would have destroyed 100% of the buildings and would have killed everyone in those buildings. At least Iraq forces observed and destroyed the buildings where there was shooting coming from the buildings, and destroyed the buildings which ISIS had planted too much explosives to safely remove the explosives.
