    An excellent day in the Iraq campaign. The Iraqi Army finished off the reconquest of Fallujah (ISIS' final large city holding in Anbar province, which is where ISIS originated in large part) last week, and now they are engaging in mopping up operations on the north bank of the Euphrates between Fallujah and the shark's fin (a bend in the river at Ramadi).

    A large ISIS unit tried to flee into the desert, but were caught in the open by US drones and Iraqi attack helicopters. A turkey shoot ensued (not unlike the Highway of Death); when a column of vehicles degenerates into a route, they become extremely vulnerable to air attack and are very easily picked off. Here's some gun camera footage from the Iraqi attack helicopters
