If the US/UK/Israel wanted ISIS to not be they wouldn't exist at all to begin with.How hard is it to identify and discharge a couple of thousand(at the most) of ignorant unorganized terrorists running around freely like goats...Heck I would have done a couple of hundred million dollars contract and took care of the problem entirely if I was still in my 30,s...Problem is there is no real will to stop ISIS or any other terrorist group for that matter.

US Squadron of AC- 130 ' could end ISIS in few months time. AC-130' accompanied by recon and he'll fire equipped drones could clear ISIS out in a very precision way we very little to no ground support.
I hope Obama will man up for this. I back his peaceful strategies around the world but ISIS are not human beings like the rest of us.
They are uncivlized pathetic animals who do not deserve normal justice or consideration.
AC-130 can kill and destroy them with almost no civilian casualties.
They can run but they will just die tired.

To be honest, i don't think it would destroy ISIS.
History has shown that air power is insufficient in dealing with guerrilla fighters, even when the air power is supported by specialist ground forces.
ISIS is a rare breed. They move like water.
One moment, ISIS fighters are hiding among civilian populations, the next, they are driving in convoys and operating as a traditional army. These guys are not the average fighter.
I don't think they will be uprooted easily.

Starting to think that US wants ISIS to live
ISIS is a free entry pass to IRAQ land whenever they need to look for oil and other resources
