A DASHING WE WILL GO:

Iraqi forces take 'Islamic State' stronghold in central Ramadi (Deutsche-Welle, 12/27/15)

"IS" fighters withdrew from a former government compound in central Ramadi on Sunday, bringing Iraqi security forces a step closer to capturing the capital of Anbar province after months of preparation, a military spokesperson said.

"The complex is under our complete control, there is no presence whatsoever of Daesh fighters in the complex," said Sabah al-Numani, using another name for the militant group which has taken over large parts of Iraq and Syria and proclaimed an Islamic caliphate.

The caliph doesn't seem to get how a "strongold" works....
