U.S. Commander Warns of Rejoicing in Terror War Wins: ‘ISIS 2.0’ Lurks

Iraq forcesIraqis may be cheering the success of government forces to oust ISIS from Mosul, but Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, the top U.S. commander in the country, warned against too much optimism.
He said that much work is needed to ensure “ISIS 2.0” doesn’t weasel its way back into Mosul.
And top of the list is for the Shia-controled government to reach out to the country’s Sunni population and make them feel welcome.

From the Express:

Townsend has warned the Government will have to take further steps to reach out to the Sunni population of the country to stop regional tensions causing further conflict.

He said: “If we’re to keep… ISIS 2.0 from emerging, the Iraqi government is going to have to do something pretty significantly different.

“They’re going to have to reach out and reconcile with the Sunni population, and make them feel like their government in Baghdad represents them.”
