The World Is United Against ISIS, So What Do We Do?



  • Jack Folan 4 years ago

    how’s the fight with Taliban and Al Qaeda going? do they still not control
    territory? who knows what will emerge if IS is gone…

    I’m sorry but this guy has no idea what he’s talking about. Several
    hundreds of thousands and take many years? IS is concentrated in Eastern
    Syria and Western Iraq. They ostensibly occupy two major cities in Raqqah
    and Mosul. We have capable, albeit under-utilised local partners in the
    Kurds, and the Russians have recently became involved by bolstering the
    Assad forces. There is no reason why this should take several hundred
    thousand Western troops on the ground.

    The initial war in Afghanistan – i.e. taking the country involved
    relatively small involvement from Western ground forces – special forces
    operating with the Northern Alliance under the cover of US air power. There
    isn’t any reason why that model couldn’t be applied in Iraq and Syria. The
    challenge then comes in how you hold the territory and make the politics
    work. But the defeat of IS really should not be all that complicated.

    There’s a propaganda war that has to be raised as well. Al-Baghdadi
    declared himself Caliph of a non-existent caliphate on his own. That’s
    about as illegitimate as it gets. You have to get that message out to young
    people in the region. Who is he to declare himself the ruler of the Muslim
    world? Paint him as a crazy man, spread that message across the region
    (particularly to young poor men) and you have a chance to turn the tide and
    slow ISIL’s intense recruiting effort.

  • Zed Flanders 4 years ago

    Sadaam was a supporter of pan arabism and so was gaddafhi. The US and
    Europe are protecting the Arabian oil fields from being nationalized or
    controlled by people who will not allow them access to that oil. Sadaam
    fucked up when he invaded Kuwait and Bush 1 got the green light to fight
    Sadaam but the American people stopped Bush 1 from invading Iraq which he
    wanted to do to take out Sadaam and damage the pan Arab movement which
    could have taken the Saudis out of power which could cut off the US and
    Europe’s supply of oil. Bush 2 needed an excuse to Invade Iraq but to start
    that war would be too obvious so he had the saudis hire osama to recruit
    some fools to blow up the twin towers so he could use that to fear monger
    the US citizens into starting a war in a muslim country. Once the ball was
    rolling Bush 2 invaded Iraq no one batted an eyelash and now flash forward
    to today. The US and Europe have taken out 7 muslim countries governments
    and destabilized the people. Why? So that the Oil can be accessed. ISIS
    sells a ton of cheap oil to countries who in turn smuggle that into Europe
    and the US. The fighting factions in Libya sell oil for cheap and same
    thing, some of that ends up in Europe and America. On the other side of
    things is Iran and Russia, whos economies depend on oil exportation. The
    reason Russia and Iran want to gain control in the region is to install
    leaders who will not give Western Europe and the US access to that oil or
    make them charge the US and Europe and the world more for that oil. So
    Russia and Iran can sell more oil for more money. Just the fact that the
    oil is being sold cheaply regardless of what country it is sold to it still
    hurts the Russian and Iranian oil sales. So even if the US and Western
    Europe pull out of the middle east completely Iran and Russia will move in
    and rape everything and they will be fighting the Saudis directly. Now I
    agree the Saudis are not the best people in the world but the Arabian
    people should decide to keep them or remove them from power not Europe
    Russia Iran or the US. Basically the Arabian peole are being held hostage
    and forced to fight each other by the entire world for the oil that lies
    under the land they live on.

    ISIS won’t be stopped cause we, americans, are making sure they are well in

    politician or military personal ’what are we going to do about ISIS?’ they
    all turn the cheek and say its not our problem to deal with when secretly
    it is. And WE ALL should know now, if the 5th amendment goes away here…
    they will get ISIS here to do the something going on in Paris.

    Typical, let the West give these Syrian rebels weapons, destabilize Syria
    even more, destabilize Libya even more with airstrikes AND destabilize

    want to proof islam is not evil………………

  • Cy Cooper 4 years ago

    Jacobs saying the same thing as other American military veterans with
    experience in the Middle East: the region is essentially a giant civil war
    that only attacks Western countries when they try to intervene. Stop
    wasting taxpayer dollars fighting an unwinnable war: it wastes resources,
    empowers neoconservative agendas, and increases the likelihood of terrorism
    in Western countries.

    One thing I’d like to point out regarding the regional powers in the middle

    Most people don’t realise that countries like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and
    the other GCC countries have their hands full with Al-Qaeda, ISIS and
    insurgency in Yemen, which recently claimed the lives of young soldiers
    from the UAE.
    In addition, compared to likes of the USA, Russia or even UK, their armed
    forces pale in comparison.

    Hey, I’m Iraqi and I’m typing this from my home in Baghdad. I salute this

    to take them out and make sure that terrorist groups like that don’t emerge
    again, he also seems to get Iran and Saudi Arabia. As for the oil, because
    I know that that will be a controversial subject, I actually wish that
    American investors had taken hold of it because as time went by, it appears
    that countries like the Netherlands do nothing in terms of protecting their
    “interests” in the region, if America had taken hold of that oil, ISIL
    would have been curbed before it gained the enormous strength which it has
    now, and it’s not like they weren’t gonna pay a hefty amount of cash in
    exchange for that oil.

    course of action against IS. Several 100’s of thousands of troops and 2
    decades? That’s insanity. Anyone that knows about how successful our
    strategy was in Iraq knows that we need to develop new counter-insurgency
    techniques. Having the Army drive around aimlessly looking for bad guys
    isn’t really the way to win the war.

    It seems to me like the conflict between Shia and Sunni Muslims has evolved

    being analogous to the US and USSR. I mean, both have funded insurgencies
    against each other without engaging in direct conflict, both refuse to
    cooperate on issues that without such cooperation will annihilate them
    both, and they’ve been engaging in an arms race against the other.
    Thankfully though, this one is not nuclear, yet.

  • TBoess85 4 years ago

    It seems to me that, like with many conflicts in the Middle East, America’s
    best weapon is to win the hearts and minds of the people. Killing them only
    makes the dead martyrs and the living more willing to fight back. The U.S.
    has a perfect opportunity to win favor through good PR if they would accept
    as many Syrian refugees as they could just like Germany. Of course, an
    extremely strict background check would be necessary. If the U.S. can show
    that they truly value the lives of good Syrian citizens, it makes it a lot
    harder for ISIS to demonize them.
