last ditch battle

Retreat To Palmyra

The Generals declared that ISIS has recaptured Palmyra.

My guess is that ISIS retreated to Palmyra

where they may have a weapons cache

and the logistics would be more favorable for them.

Furthermore, it is to be noted that ISIS just walked in to Palmyra.

Palmyra is also a site which is still full

of historic artifacts, and as such may not come

under bombings by the Syrians.

It is also closer to the Iraqi border, and may then serve

as a base for the ISIS in Iraq in case

these are forced to retreat.

Should all the terrorist forces be concentrated

on Palmyra, expect a last ditch battle.
