"Amirli is liberated by the joint Iraqi forces," Hakim Al-Zamily, a Sadrist member of Parliament, said. "ISIS militants escaped from Amirli and the areas around."

ISIS can be rolled back with US and other nation's airpower and Iraqis and Kurds on the ground. This is the third example of it happening.

I hope the U.S. Aid Drops have started to use parachutes by now. Many of the early one’s didn’t, and only exploded upon impact, rendering them useless. Who was not thinking ahead to allow this to happen?
