The West is doing the right thing.
We need more WAAAUGH! We need to bomb more! Boots on the ground!
The West needs to change their foreign policy. Stop meddling in other countries.
Here, try arguing with the Cato Institute,
If the chief natural resource of the Middle East were bananas, the region would not have attracted the attention of U.S. policymakers as it has for decades. Americans became interested in the oil riches of the region in the 1920s, and two U.S. companies, Standard Oil of California and Texaco, won the first concession to explore for oil in Saudi Arabia in the 1930s. They discovered oil there in 1938, just after Standard Oil of California found it in Bahrain. The same year Gulf Oil (along with its British partner Anglo-Persian Oil) found oil in Kuwait. During and after World War II, the region became a primary object of U.S. foreign policy. It was then that policymakers realized that the Middle East was "a stupendous source of strategic power, and one of the greatest material prizes in world history."(4)
SO, HAGEL SAYS WE'RE NOT THERE FOR FIGS, CATO POINTS OUT WE'RE NOT THERE FOR BANANAS, AND EVERYONE KNOWS THAT OUR ME FOREIGN POLICY SETTLES AROUND OIL, WELL, EVERYONE EXCEPT FOR HB.

Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
Other - have the POTUS simply declare victory, withdraw our forces and it is over.
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
We err terribly when we think the terrorists feel the same as we do. When we think that they think as we do. When we trust them to have reasonable goals as we do. Religious fanaticism is a terrible thing, and Islam is rampant with it despite the millions of truly nice, pleasant, lovable people who also embrace it. But the faith itself prevents those nice, pleasant, lovable people from going against their Imans/leaders or to publically protest their activities. To underestimate our enemy or to sugar coat him out of some warped sense of political correctness is to give him license, encouragement, and ability to wreck much more havoc upon us. They are not impressed with our education and they laugh at us when we are gullible enough to give them food, supplies, money and ability to acquire more weapons to use against us.
