OUR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT:

Kurds celebrate fall of Syrian border town, another blow to Islamic State ( Dominique Soguel, JUNE 16, 2015, CS Monitor)

The capture of Tel Abyad also marked the second major victory over IS forces for the US-backed Kurdish forces and their allies, prompting much celebration Tuesday.

Getting them to take towns gets them to cluster enough that we can kill them.
