"As 2017 draws to a close, the mood among leading pundits on the U.S.-led campaign to dislodge the Islamic State from Iraq and Syria might seem justifiably upbeat, even jubilant. After all, the accomplishments in the campaign's first three years are many: eliminating key ISIS leaders, clearing the group from its so-called "dual capitals" of Mosul and Raqqa, and reducing the territorial safe havens from which it can plot attacks.

That means more vigilance is needed now from citizens than before, and our intel agencies and law enforcement entities are going to need to work together much harder than before. And yes, national governments are going to need to share information with one another.

All because nothing substantial was tried until 2017.

During this week ISIS counter-attacked Peshmerga in Iraq, tried to sieze Damascus district, made some (intercepted) missile shots on Russian base in Syria, made another suicidal attack in Afghanistan – they're not dead, they migh be more dangerous now, that we don't know exactly where they are.
