Victory Dance: Young Kurdish fighters celebrate driving ISIS out of Kobane with synchronized jig [Video]

Good for the Kurds! They are legendary fighters – especially the women who have vowed not to be taken alive and are deadly in battle. Celebrate and prepare for the next battle, because ISIS will be back with a vengeance. I know the US is taking a victory lap as well, as two of the ISIS fighters claim it was the US-led coalition airstrikes that drove them back. Hold the off-the-charts celebrating for a real victory, boys. Kobane is literally surrounded now by the enemy and they aren’t afraid to die. They’ll descend again and slaughter all they can. Unless the coalition decimates the fighters surrounding the city, the victory won’t hold. ISIS needs to be eradicated.

of their win in Kobane.

Final blow: Airstrikes by the US-led coalition were the main reason why extremists
were forced to withdraw from the town, according to two of the group’s fighters.

From the Daily Mail:

A video showing Kurdish fighters celebrating defeating ISIS in the Syrian town of Kobane has emerged online.

The clip shows a large group of young Kurdish fighters, both men and women, holding hands as they perform a traditional dance and cheer following their victory over the militants.

The joyful celebration follows members of the Islamic State officially admitting defeat on Saturday, but promising to strike again.

Speaking on behalf of ISIS, two militants said the airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition were the main reason why they had been forced to withdraw from Kobane.

The admissions were made in a a video released by the pro-ISIS Aamaq News Agency late Friday, in which the fighters vowed to retaliate against the Kurdish militia.

On Monday, activists and Kurdish officials said the town was almost cleared of IS fighters, who once held nearly half of Kobane.

The failure to capture Kobane was a major blow to ISIS, whose hopes for an easy victory turned into a costly siege under airstrikes by coalition forces and an assault by Kurdish Peshmerga,

The United States and its allies have carried out 27 air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria since Friday, the Combined Joint Task Force leading the operation reported on Saturday.

Some 13 air strikes targeted areas near Kobane in just 24 hours, it was reported on Wednesday.

The strikes around Kobane hit 12 Islamic State tactical units and a vehicle, and destroyed nine fighting positions, a staging area and three buildings, the Combined Joint Task Force said in a statement.

The Pentagon said at the time that the militants had been driven out of 90 percent of Kobane, a city near the border with Turkey where fighting has raged for four months.

Six air strikes in northern Iraq, where Islamic State has seized swathes of territory, targeted al Asad, Kirkuk, Mosul and Sinjar, hitting tactical units, a checkpoint, six buildings and six shipping containers, the task force said.

Despite this temporary victory, I’m sad to say that ISIS’ growth is expanding hugely and it is unchecked by the Obama Administration. As the US battles ISIS in Iraq, the Caliphate is also looking elsewhere, gaining ground in Syria and attracting more followers across the Middle East. ISIS, led by Iraqi cleric Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has long-term goals of seizing even more territory in Syria and Iraq. The Jihadists are actively planning attacks against the US homeland. At the same time, national security analysts say, the Obama Administration has no grand strategy to combat or contain ISIS outside of Iraq and Syria. I don’t think the cavalry is going to save Kobane. We don’t have a leader who has the stomach or the stones to decimate ISIS.
