The arrangement of armor on this Islamic State armored personal carrier doesn't look very trustworthy, does it?

The SDF is just going to have to hop from canal to canal.  There's no real way to get a quick offensive going through that- ISIL basically has beautiful defensive lines at each one.  So each one will have to be taken in turn, by storm.  Also will have to secure that other, smaller dam, though that should be easier since there's no major cities on either side of it, and they can easily advance down both sides of the Euphrates now.

I'm betting on a month or so before Raqqah is fully invested, and probably see Raqqah fall in about 3 months.  We'll see how wrong I am come August :P

Looks a little quick to me.
You are bathing in misery and hope, waiting for someone to come and pull the plug.

If you notice, each attack basically is a stage assaulting across from one canal to another.  That's what I mean- there's no sweeping, across the front attacks.  Instead they methodically hop from one canal barrier to another, taking the defenses in segments.

They don't use those as VBIED's, they're too slow.  They seem to just stick to wheeled trucks and such.

I recall they used BMPs as VBIEDs during the first Battle of Palmyra (back when the SAA tried to keep on pushing after liberating Palmyra but failed).
