In our latest STRATEGIKON podcast, John Bruni and David Olney discuss the battle for Mosul, Iraq’s attempt at liberating the Islamic State’s ‘jewel in the crown’, and its implications. Topics covered include:
- How will Islamic State fighters conduct their defence of Mosul – its highly prized and critical strategic asset
- Is the Iraqi Army and government capable of victory?
- What will victory look like for the people of Mosul and Iraq generally if Baghdad is not committed to implementing good governance?
