I am not all surprised that ISIS is fighting for its life in Mosul SFC Joe S. Davis Jr., MSM, DSL. They know the stakes are high from a nationalistic standpoint in Iraq and an economic standpoint because of the oil rich region's characteristics.
I hope that the Iraqi forces and Kurdish Peshmerga will be successful in methodically rooting out and destroying each and every ISIS group with minimal civilian and friendly casualties.
I also hope that ISIS attempts at using chemical and biological weapons will result in catastrophic failures for them.

LTC Stephen F. with the help of coalition forces and Syria in chaos, we got a start for their total annihilation and demise of ISIS; they must be defeated at all cost for the survival of the middle east IMHO.

Some really intense fighting going on ... I hope they will cut the Devil's head pretty soon and push on into Raqqa and finish them off properly ... If they're not asking for quarter no quarter should be given and frankly the only way to irradicate this cancer is a total anihilation of all its affiliates ...

IS has not been sitting idle and waiting for the Iraqi attacks - and it is a credit to the Iraqi Army that they have beaten back several local counter attacks. But this fight really has just started, and the question of the day is what will the IS commander's next move be. Fight and bleed the Iraqi force and see if they collapse? Await the moment when they are far enough into the city and a seam or flank is exposed and attempt to roll them? Attack the rear area and force the Iraqis to go with less supplies and less forces? How wrong was the estimate in the number of forces in Mosul IS could generate for this fight? If it was just 5,000 - no way they could be everywhere..

Whoever the IS commander is in the city - he has already shown to be very capable - and whatever his operational plan is.. would not underestimate that this is someone who knows his enemies better than they know him - and that makes him all the more difficult to beat up front. .
