    Reinforcements , even up to 100,000 men .. with nuclear bombs .. even reinstate the draft ! Iraq is hopeless ..Partition this area into 3 sections one for the Kurds, one for the Shia, one for the Sunni ..
    ISIS must be wiped out ..100% !

    "order our Marines to flee" unthinkable !
    "have our Marines surrender " ? NEVER!!
    But, why are they in Iraq, in the first place ??

    there's no need for a draft... none whatsoever.

    nukes?.. totally not needed

    there's also no need to partition Iraq, although the idea has some merit.... any partitioning should be up to Iraqis, not anyone else.

    I'll overreact where it comes to the health and welfare of our soldiers ...I do agree that the Iraqis should be involved in the partition of their nation ..but its hard to imagine this being successful .. Nukes shortened WW2, no question .. This fighting and killing in the middle east has been going on too damned long ..

    Not an iota of symphony for ISIS ... love to see our Marines "wipe them out " .
    Remember Lebanon - 20-30 years ago - 200 Marines ??

    No need to jail them if they do not immediately surrender, if they immediately surrender send them to the countries they came from and let them rot in jail there (after a nice little "chat" to find out any and all information they have). If they do not surrender then so be it, kill'em if needed.
    Special forces are combat multipliers, not a strike force.

    it has nothing to do with confidence. it has everything to do with getting them out of there alive and making sure we pound the enemy into
    submission.

    No worries! Barrack Obama says that climate change is a bigger threat to these soldiers than ISL, and the morale of ISL (similar to Jayvees) is very low.

    Essentially yes, though "carpet bombing" even with iron bombs is significantly more precise than in WWII nor would this have to be done from extreme altitudes or with B52s. This would give incentive for locals to resist ISIS/ISIL - or to evacuate the city - and give no advantage in seizing/conquering cities. There is no real alternative.
