Another good news about forces being deployed to eradicate ISIS. Apparently, Iraqi armed forces have launched a military operation to free Anbar and Salaheddin regions from ISIS' lead.

The fighting that's currently being made in Salaheddin is for the purpose of cutting a supply route into Anbar and liberate the city of Baiji and an oil refinery.

The one which is being led in Anbar will have military operations deployed in Karma, northeast of Falluja and somewhere around Ramadi.

But there's also been U.S. reactions, mainly from the Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, which said the Iraqi army lacked the the will of properly fighting ISIS.

Iraqi forces outnumbered the ISIS fighters but for some reason, they retreated, leaving behind ammo and equipment which the terrorists seized. Now barely a week later, they suddenly want to go fight and win? If their strategy was to arm the terrorists first before engaging them then it worked. However if it's victory they sought they should fight like the Kurds did in Kobane — they shouldn't retreat nor surrender. Such determination will most certainly bear fruit.
