Just wait until they hit traffic on the Roosevelt Bridge

Pentagon spokesman trying to make the locations in Iraq seem more vivid when the discussion is of how soon the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) can retake Ramadi from ISIS --

If I were going to put it in more colloquial terms, I would say the ISF are probably around Falls Church, if it was Washington, D.C., that we were talking about; maybe they're coming in onto Arlington at this point, just to give you a sense of what this is like. So, they haven't entered the city center proper, but they're certainly kind of in the outer suburbs, if you will.
