    Syria may fall to the Daesh

    The Syrian regime forces with Russian help were only a few miles from liberating Tabbqa a strategic town that would have been the beginning of the end for ISIS had Assad taken the town, the IS would have been cut off from the rest of the world.

    However ISIS launched a massive counter offensive and have driven back the Assad forces nearly 100 miles in the past 3 days. Assad forces are struggling to stop this advance and ISIS are aiming towards the regime heartland of western Syria with their eyes on Hama and Homs. If they fall it will only be a matter of time before Damascus falls

    This is the first major advance by Daesh into western and coastal Syria. Normally they've occupied the Eastern deserts around Raqqa.

    The end result could be an independent Kurdistan which is good but at the expense of Southern Syria been taken over by the Daesh

    Russia and the west are doing little about it either.

    Ugh. Here we go again with the hysterics.

    Yes the Syrian Arab Army took a bit punch over the last few days; on the road to Raqqa ISIS counter-attacked and cut off their troops in a pocket which they then squeezed. But that doesn't change the fundamentals. ISIS is naturally going to have a couple of victories on their way to defeat, and the signs are all clear. Fallujah has pretty much been taken by the Iraqi Army (meaning ISIS have been ejected from Anbar, a hugely meaningful step given Anbar is the Sunni insurgency's homeland). In Northern Syria Manbij has been surrounded and almost conquered by the Kurds, and the FSA is getting ready to cut off ISIS' border smuggling routes.

    Your hysterical propaganda has no effect, terrorist. Either people don't care about this topic, or those that do and who know something about it know your prognistications are just ISIS propaganda. So **** off please

    Yeah, the West is doing little about it. Other than the 12,000 airstrikes and 70,000 bombs and missiles they've dropped on ISIS, the 30,000 ISIS members they've killed, the training and supply support they've provided to the Pesh and the Iraqi Army that have seen them take around 50% of the territory ISIS took in 2014 in Iraq.

    But otherwise, yeah; very little :rolleyes:

    Oh, I almost forgot. Here's one of your ISIS brothers getting clipped in an airstrike recently.



    Boom! Headshot

    The Germans made huge advances right before the end of WW1. Still lost the war.

    ISIS don't have the political, military or economic might to sustain themselves. I'll give it a year or two before they implode and revert back to how Al Qaeda in Iraq functioned.
