quote [ The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces and its partners launched their offensive on Tuesday, the U.S. Central Command said in an emailed statement.

“The fight for Raqqa will be long and difficult, but the offensive would deliver a decisive blow to the idea of ISIS as a physical caliphate,” ]

This will be a bloody mess and has about a million things that can go wrong.
