Trump Give ISIS Its Biggest Victory In Years (So Much Winning)

American forces and their Kurdish-led partners in Syria had been conducting as many as a dozen counterterrorism missions a day against Islamic State militants, officials said. That has stopped. Those same partners, the Syrian Democratic Forces, had also been quietly releasing some Islamic State prisoners and incorporating them into their ranks, in part as a way to keep them under watch. That, too, is now in jeopardy.

And across Syria’s porous border with Iraq, Islamic State fighters are conducting a campaign of assassination against local village headmen, in part to intimidate government informants.

“There is no question that ISIS is one of the big winners in what is happening in Syria,” said Lina Khatib, director of the Middle East and North Africa Program at Chatham House, a research center in London. Cutting support for the Syrian Democratic Forces has crippled the ability of the United States and its former partners to hunt down the group’s remnants.

Emphasis mine
He does not care of course. He will declare it a victory anyway and if any ISIS terrorist attacks happen on US soil he will blame it on the Mexicans...
Meanwhile massacres are happening, war crimes are occurring and the world sits back and does nothing... so fucking depressing.

1. where is the Repuke hysteria about ISIS now?

They were manic before the 2016 election, even going so far as to rewrite history to blame it on Obama.

2. There's a campaign ad, have Lina Khatib speak about it for 20 seconds, while playing

'Stars and Stripes Forever' as background music. Add some still shots of shitler making stupid faces. Enhance the kettle drum to make the song more like circus music.
