President Trump Predicts ISIS Will Lose All Territory in Iraq and Syria by Next Week
MATTHEW LEE / AP

(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump predicted Wednesday that the Islamic State group will have lost by next week all the territory it once controlled in Iraq and Syria. He said the U.S. will not relent in fighting remnants of the extremist organization despite his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria over the objections of some of his most senior national security advisers.

The president told representatives of a 79-member, U.S.-led coalition fighting IS that the militants held a tiny percentage of the vast territory they claimed as their “caliphate.”

“It should be formally announced sometime, probably next week, that we will have 100 percent of the caliphate,” Trump said.

That’s foolish, because the caliphate is always somewhere in the Middle East. They just disagree among themselves where and who’s in charge. The next band who will try reassembling it will be the Turks.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

I agree, this kind of goes with the other story just posted of a "war with the Intel Chiefs", time to hope we do the right thing and don't act rashly.
