The Wall Street Journal reports that U.S.-led airstrikes have wiped out 6,000 of ISIS’s 14,000 core fighters and half of its core leadership. Straight line these numbers out just a few months and ISIS may be reduced to near irrelevance. That is certain to be the case if, after two near misses, the head of the ISIS snake, Abu Bakr Al-Badhdadi, can be severed. The last strike at him (a near miss) occurred about 250 north of Baghdad near the Syrian border.
