Americans must retake Mosul from ISIS and erect a memorial for all who died there

In 2004, Americans fought ferociously to win the Battle of Mosul Iraq. Now, in an infuriating defeat for the Iraq army, the evil Islamic State (ISIS) has taken back Mosul and occupied this territory.

Although the American main stream media continues to report on the consequences of national winter ice and snow accumulations, the fact is, another ferocious battle is being planned to win back Mosul, in Iraq.  

Thankfully, BBCNews is reporting on this battle, while the American news media are obsessed about reporting on winter ice.

Of course, weather, ice and snow, especially in winter, will make dramatic visual news.  

But, this seasonal imagery can't trump the significance of the battle to win Mosul back from the evil ISIS. (The Battle for Mosul was fought by U.S. forces under the leadership of General David Petraeus, in 2004, during the Iraq War.)

BBCNews is reporting how Iraq and Kurdish troops will fight to regain Mosul from the ISIS radical terrorist fighters.  

Mosul, which was home to more than a million people, fell to ISIS last June.

A joint Iraqi-Kurdish military force of up to 25,000 fighters  are being prepared to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul from Islamic State (evil ISIS), a US official says.

A senior military official said that the operation to recapture the northern Iraq city would probably take place in April or May.

Iraq's second largest city was currently being held by 1,000 to 2,000 ISIS militants, the official added.

Mosul, which was home to more than a million people, fell to ISIS last June.

The unnamed official told reporters that no decision had been made on whether a small group of US military advisers would be needed on the ground to direct air support.

The official said all of the fighters in the force would have gone through training by the US.

The official added that the operation would be needed by May, otherwise it would be compromised by the summer heat, although he added that it could be delayed if the Iraqi forces were not ready.

Julie's postscript - when Mosul is eventually recaptured from evil ISIS, a success that, no doubt, will cost many more lives.....the ultimate victory must include the plans to erect a mammoth tribute monument, including the names of every person who has been killed in this blood bath - including the known civilians.  

There was no reason, whatsoever, for the cowardly Iraq army to loose Mosul to evil ISIS.  Nevertheless, when it's finally reclaimed, the territory must erect a monument that should remind the world about the terrible carnage caused by the entire failed operation Iraqi Freedom. 

When Jeb Bush officially launches his campaign to become president of the United States, he must be asked how it was the Americans lost Operation Iraqi Freedom under his brother's leadership.  Moreover, Jeb Bush  must be asked how he intends to prevent Mosul from ever again being captured by Islamic extremists.
