isis is at it again
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/us-mar...204300316.html

They took over a town and beheaded people and they burned 45 people alive. There is also collateral damage in that food and clean water was stopped from reaching the town and kids have died from drinking bad water.
isis seems to be killing everyone that opposes them and those still alive live in fear of them.
The only good thing about their despicable deeds is that someday there won't be anyone left that isn't a member of isis.
The world should throw a defensive circle around them and when they have no else to kill then the world can carpet bomb them and finally be done with them.
They are dangerous. They cannot be negotiated with. They are the new Nazi.

It is time to get serious.

Good luck herding them into a circle. That's the problem -- this isn't the same as bombing a country into submission. You can't stop a terrorist group by bombing it. There's no legal political entity (like a government) that can offer up a surrender for the entire group -- if 75% of them are ready to give in but 25% want to keep fighting, they'll keep fighting, and they'll bring in more recruits to help them.

The most that can realistically be done is to cut off their funding and access to weapons. We can freeze bank accounts and single out the people who aid and abet. Another thing we can do is turn public opinion against them. Unfortunately, that's kind of hard to do in a part of the world where America and the West are seen as imperialist aggressors -- and often with good reason. This is, in large part, a monster we helped create. You think we'd learn our lesson. The best way to prevent ISIS-type groups from proliferating is to stop creating the situations that give rise to them in the first place.

I agree, they are the new Nazi. I wonder how much attention is being payed to the killers, rapists and thieves in our own prisons who "convert " to Islam. I haven't really seen anything written about that lately, but surely a percentage of them are Isis material.

By stamping out the participants until either there's none left or they realize it's very unhealthy (turned to room temperature) to keep participating.

We can't. But that shouldn't stop us from stomping out the savage murderers who make no pretense about wanting us all beheaded and lying dead in the streets.

Something along the lines of what Obama is doing. Use weapons to take out the extremists and words to assuage the moderates.

Yes, they are the new Nazi. The difference is, is that everyone in the entire world knows exactly what they are doing as they are doing it, and yet here we are, seemingly powerless.

I'm trusting that world leaders are secretly working behind the scenes to "take care" of the problem. I don't have to know about it -- just get it done already!

ISIS wont be eradicated with air strikes alone. Troops on the ground are needed. Except this time it should not be American ground troops. Time for countries in the region to step up and use their fighters. Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and others need to quit depending on the American military. Our young men and women have sacrificed enough.

And our so-called NATO ally Italy that ISIS has recently threatened wouldn't even be able to defend itself properly if ISIS is able to carry out it's threat (which I doubt).

We can't defeat ISIS because then we would be the Crusaders and we can't have that.
