“The numbers are up because we’re now tracking the numbers in ways we have not before,” he said. “I think the numbers are also up because of the so-called ‘caliphate,’ [which] has created in some respects a magnetism for those elements that want to be part of this.”
While Gen. Allen Also Acknowledged That “ISIL will Remain a formidable foe,” he asserted That the US-backed ground war Against the group only in its beginning Stages That and the Gains already being made shouldnt not be discounted.
“Just last week, under the cover of bad weather, ISIL launched an attack the town of Al-Baghdadi, near al Asad airbase, where our forces are located with the Danes and Australians to help train Iraqi soldiers and tribal volunteers,” he said . “ISIL, as it has done over and over again, rampaged through the town, killing civilians, and driving hundreds of families into exile on the airbase. But the Iraqis did not sit idle. They organized, and fought back. “
