BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:55 P.M.) – Nearly 38 months ago, the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) took Iraq by storm, capturing several important areas while wrecking havoc on the historical Fertile Crescent.

Well, the Islamic State’s reign of terror in the Nineveh Governorate is now over, as the Iraqi Armed Forces liberated the last areas under the terrorist group’s control in this historical province in northwest Iraq.

With the Nineveh Governorate liberated, the Iraqi military can now shift their attention to Samarra in the Salaheddine Governorate and Al-Qa’im in the Al-Anbar Governorate.

Both of the aforementioned areas will take some time to liberate due to the Islamic State’s inability to retreat anywhere outside of Syria’s Deir Ezzor Governorate.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
