Hopefully the Final Push Against ISIS: Forces move on Raqqa

Lets hope they can encircle them so that very few escape the cordon of death.
Lt. Gen. Steve Townsend, commander of the U.S.-led coalition in the region, cautioned that the offensive "will be long and difficult," but is necessary to deal a final blow to the idea of an Islamic State caliphate, which has been a powerful recruiting tool for the militants.
The campaign to surround the city has been underway for months. The offensive announced Tuesday is the final phase, which involves attacking into the city and began with a foray into the eastern reaches of Raqqa.

Every ISIS scumbag that gets out of that city might be a potential suicide bomber or truck killer in the future I should bet.
