    Boots on the ground is what ISIS wants. Especially American ones. Unless they're Arab boots, they can only benefit.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    It is what I want too. I think five to seven brigade combat teams, 2-3K special operators, a suitable quantity of a cross section of the intelligence disciplines all backed by massive airpower should reduce ISIS by 95% in a matter of weeks.

    But how do we keep The Insane One occupied so he does not meddle and throw away our success to his Islamofascist friends?

    And why is he arming Iran with nuclear weapons and the means to strike the US?

    I agree that we could wipe out ISIS as a military force in a matter of weeks, if we had the resolve and reason to do so.

    I also believe that eventually it will be wiped out by "the coalition of the willing", with less loss of American lives (although probably more loss of citizens of other countries lives).

    There is no one named Bush to put that together. We do have a manly leader in Jordan. Maybe we can convince The Effeminate One to get behind him (ooh! bad image). I mean follow him. :-)

    Yeah... if they stood toe to toe like armies of the old days, sure.

    But they won't. They will hide... blend in with the population... and use improvised explosive devices to kill off American forces where they can, and terrorize the population that gives aid to American Forces.

    Meanwhile, we spend billions supporting this operation, and go furthur into debt.

    I'm curious why you think that when 14 years of the strongest military in the world attempting the same thing with both the Taliban and AQ, and what we have is an emboldened network of terrorist organisations and Islamic extremists wreaking havoc in the ME,
    And a Taliban and AQ alive and well??

    ISIS will lose, if American troops hit the ground.

    Yep, just like the Taliban and AQ did.

    i don't know about that, but I'm pretty sure unbiased historians will review his actions to remove every single soldier and military analyst from Iraq and declaring Iraq stable enough to handle it.......that won't look like such a brilliant move.
