The meaning?

A Tweet from Brett of Sunnybrook Farm.

Three years ago, was site of massacres & genocide by terrorists. Today, their defenses are collapsing in face of Iraq forces.

Three years ago, ISIS took control of Tal Afar.

Joy throughout the kingdom!

Three years now, ISIS has controlled Tal Afar -- hard to spin that as good news.

AP states that 90% of Tal Afar has been retaken.

Larger issue, of allowing it to be controlled by ISIS for 3 years, is avoided.

As are the implications.

Those would include that the US can't impose a government and its own hand picked leaders upon another country and expect the citizens of that country to fight for the US-installed government.
