    BBC News - Fifth RAF Iraq mission ends with 'no reports' of bombing

    I can understand what ISIS is saying, since Obama's Non-Coalition isn't working.

    It was never intended to work, its a dog and pony show prior to the mid terms.

    How about for starters no troops on the ground when the only way to defeat ISIS is...boots on the ground?

    Americans don't want boots on the ground.

    A majority of Americans -- 60 percent -- told a poll conducted for CNN they don’t want ground troops to be part of the combat operation against ISIS while 38 percent said they favor ground troops and 2 percent had no opinion.

    Of course we know that boots will eventually be on the ground, and we'll likely have another long conflict costly in blood and treasure, ending with a declaration of "decimation" and the only real beneficiaries will be the defense contractors big business.

    Public opinion (polls) and definitive solutions are two different things here.

    You're dismissing the will of the people in favor of boots on the ground. Perhaps that's how you'd like to see things work, but that's not the democratic way.

    Re: ISIS Boasts Air Strikes are not Effective

    Here is my take.
    Could it be true? Perhaps. BUT, and it's a big one, ISIS is good at propaganda.
    Lets face it, we have the best military in the world regardless of CIC, so lets give them some credit instead of ISIS.
