Since 44's contained JV team acted out murderously in Paris is it time to go all out on ISIS/ISIL/IS?
If this attack in the heart of a major Western capital represents the beginning of a new phase in the combat between ISIS and the civilized world, the question going forward is what kind of war will it be? What can be done not just to control and contain the threat? That approach by Washington and its allies clearly has not worked. There was nothing controlled or contained about what happened here.
Put together a force of 6,000 or 7,000 airborne soldiers and just take Raqqa. Don’t issue warnings. Don’t assemble tank columns. Train the force, then use it.
ROE's need to be liberally re evaluated even as ISIS is embedded among the civilian population....
They are representing the civilian population, at least those who have remained and sometimes profited from the group’s presence. They are not enslaving them. And a war is a war.
