States claiming to be against ISIL, officially.  I suspect Russia will become part of those fighting it outside of the "coalition" soon.

lmao i don't think isil knows how to form an insult

also, i find the british media's 'is' nomenclature even more infuriating than the isil/s [hint: the s is wrong] debate.  islamic state just sounds too vague and could potentially be applied to any muslim-majority country akudood;

isis may not be technically correct anymore, but the group became well known in the media and among average western citizens while it called itself isis, which has caused it to become the far more common term in vernacular and as such it will probably stick around until the group's been dismantled

not to mention that the s in isis actually stands for al-sham, and it's easier to pronounce that 'isil' lol

'islamic state' could refer to any of the handful of states prefixed with 'islamic state', but that was probably a deliberate move by isi* to cause the rest of the world to conflate it with all of islam

can we get an update on the sit'

mosuls coming along but i dont really understand their strat. theyre cupping up at the bottom but barely making any progress at the top so is it some kind of mish mash flim flam smothering idk. doesnt make sense but it is the iraqi army so you know.

once they get mosul, which looks good, they can pretty easily push isis out of iraq, so theyd just be iss, which is pretty astronautical.

then the question of, lol the kurds are controlling a third of the country and they have been for 3 years now...

assad almost has aleppo. all told, pretty good. obama's strat is coming together, as horrible as it was.

unless their goal was just to conquer alil's shower, in which case the pincer move on that is pretty solid
