ISF making significant progress in Ramadi

When I told a fellow analyst in August that Ramadi could be retaken from ISIS by the end of the year the skepticism on his face was quite visible. Accelerating gains on the ground lately have made the prospects for kicking ISIS out of the provincial capital of Anbar within the next few weeks seem reasonably strong. (Note to self: next time put money on it)  

Seriously though, it seems like this is more or less the first time that ISIS is on the defensive/lost momentum on all major fronts across the Iraqi theater: Diyala, Himrin, Kirkuk, Baiji, Makhmour/Gwer, Sinjar, and Ramadi.
