If we are to believe the statements of Obama administration officials about the war in Iraq, it’s just a matter of time before Islamic State will be driven out of its strongholds in Mosul and Falluja.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter said Monday during a visit to the USS Blue Ridge — the Navy’s command ship in the Asia Pacific — that the U.S. is “going to accelerate the military campaign as fast as we can.”

The Pentagon is currently drawing up recommendations about an increase of U.S. support for the Iraqi army that could include the involvement of American forces. The U.S. has currently 2,000 military personnel in Iraq.
