    We have to wait and see how permanent that "win" will be. ISIS isn't going anywhere - it will just re-emerge elsewhere. Still, good progress, and Iraq is getting better militarily, with our help, of course.

    It's hard to defeat someone you secretly admire. Obama supplied them with shoulder fired rockets.

    Declaring victory does't mean that victory was achieved.

    They may be mostly gone from Raqqa and Mosul, but there are still vast areas of desert they are in control of with vastly more fresh discontents to fuel jihadi anger. Their model of insurgency is durable and effective.

    I'm pretty sure most of us agree with that. However, under the Won's regime, even small victories were nowhere in sight.

    I'm equally sure that most of us agree that ISIS isn't meant to be defeated. We love us some boogeymen.
