    I thought when some serious pushback came, theyd retreat, taking their booty with them, back to Syria. Like pirates in 4 wheel drive vehicles. I certainly didnt take ravings to the contrary by one or two low level front line guys who were willing to be on TV seriously. But they didnt flee the field and they didnt continue to batter their brains out on a strategy that wasnt working either.
    They adjusted course, changed their strategy, but not their goal, and look to be on the offensive again.
