Iraqi gov't forces try to retake Ramadi from IS

Then a year later he said they were "contained." What a buffoon.

“I think the fall of Ramadi is inevitable,” Warren told Pentagon reporters, cautioning that it will take some time. “It’s going to be a tough fight.”

And then what? Only for ISIS to "retake" Ramadi a month later?

Not at Ramadi. Ramadi is more an Iraqi forces with Iranian Shiites militia type of operation. Ramadi is not much of an US responsibility.
