The coming terror attacks will probably take the form of the Boston bombing or Fort Hood massacre multiplied in different communities in different nations. They could occur at any time, beginning today.
It is not a moment for partisan politics but bipartisan action in Washington and multilateral action on the global stage. It is absurd to believe that the war against ISIS can be won by bombing alone, and it is negligent for every nation to demand that someone else provide the troops that are urgently needed. Every lesson of military history teaches that at least 10,000 to 15,000 boots on the ground are needed in addition to Iraqi forces that are often unpaid and inadequate to accomplish the mission alone.
