THAT RARE WAR WHERE THE ENEMY'S GOAL IS TO DIE, NOT KILL:

EXCLUSIVE: ISIS 'Will Fight to the Death' for Mosul, Says Top Peshmerga General (KEVIN BARON, 9/22/16, DEFENSE ONE)

When Kurdish Peshmerga, Iraqi army, and U.S.-led coalition forces move to liberate nearby Mosul, possibly within two weeks, Islamic State fighters will not abandon their prized city and quietly slink away as many in Washington have predicted, according to the Peshmerga's top military officer.

"They will fight to the death," said Gen. Jamal Mohammad Omer, Kurdish military chief of staff, in an exclusive interview with Defense One in his office Thursday. [...]

"We are ready," said Omer, who also goes by Jamal Mohammed. "If we liberate Mosul, Daesh will be finished," he said, using the preferred derogatory acronym for the Islamic State.
