With that in mind, the extremists may want to steer clear of a special Kurdish unit in Syria.

    The Kurdish female fighters that were holding the center of Kobane faced the brunt of the IS attack, but they never gave up. They delivered the first major defeat to IS, and it's been downhill for IS ever since. They should have a monument in Kobane like the monument at Bastonge.
