Yes, we are winning the war against ISIS, however, it is a war that we should not have to fight in the first place. The fact that we are fighting this war at all gives ISIS a figurative victory. earth is engaged in fighting them and has to pay attention to them. This means that they got their message out.
No, it does not seem like the U.S. and its allies can claim they are winning the war against ISIS. The group is everywhere and constantly moving and growing. However, every air strike or attack can and should be considered a small but important win. This particular strike seems to be a rather large hit and a win.
ISIS's primary tool and weapon, like all terrorist is fear. As long as we are afraid of ISIS and continue to restrict our own lives in order to protect ourselves, ISIS is wining. We may be able to wipe out the heads of ISIS, but as long as we are afraid they will grow back and new organizations will grow in their place.
The United States and Iraq have had success killing many ISIS fighters, and destroying targets in Iraq and Syria. However, nothing seems to deter ISIS. There have been countless victories over the past two years in the fight against ISIS, but the terrorist group continues to fight on. In short, it could be said that the United States is winning the battles, but ISIS is winning the war.
