    IT certainly looks like Obama doesn't have a clue in how to beat ISIS! What suggestions would you make, if he asked you how to beat these terrorists?

    Depends. What kind of reputation do you want for America when I'm done? I've got vastly different strategies based on the answer to that question.

    First and foremost:

    Recognize the enemy and name them.

    Hint: It's not just ISIS.

    When the Nazis were losing the war, they started sending over V1 and V" 'doodlebugs' or flying bombs on London. There was no military purpose in this; it was just that they knew they were losing and they were striking out anyway they could. They continued until their launching pads were overrun by the allies.

    ISIS is losing. They are being bombed to blazes and have no air force of their own or any missiles that can bring down allied 'planes. Their military capability is being slowly degraded so that they are being steadily defeated on the ground. In that situation they are striking back in the only way they can, by random violence by lone wolf bombers or gunmen, whether in Turkey, Europe or the U.S. There is no military point to it, but you can expect more of it until ISIS is finally crushed.

    All I can suggest is stepping up the bombing and supporting your Secret Services.

    Serious answer? The terror attacks are the end culmination of the recruitment process. We need a war on both ends and the middle of the process that creates these attacks.

    Find ISIS' infrastructure for communications in Syria and Iraq, i.e. cell phone towers, internet servers, storage, and relays and destroy them. Put pressure on other nations to shut down ISIS' websites that promote hate and videos to recruit new followers. Find and kill the people that produce these videos. Launch cyberattacks on the websites that show these videos and shutdown these websites. Basically destroy their ability to recruit new people.

    We need to get a bac kbone, and call muslim terrorism, and have to treat it like we had to Nazi Germany under Hilter... Just like today, its a fight to the death against a mindset that believe is satanically directed/inpired, whose goal is to wipe us out!

    No peace treaty. no bargaining, all that we can do is what we did to Germany, as the world had to ralley and crush that regime....

    1. Not all Muslims are terrorists, so you better make a distinction. "Radical Islam", "Jihadi Islam" or somesuch.

    2. Just calling it a name is not going to defeat it.

    No,. but if you don't know who the enemy is, you certainly can't defeat it. ISIS is only a symptom of the problem.
