Letter to the Editor:

The Western world has to go into Syria and Iraq to eliminate ISIS. ISIS has established a caliphate, and if we destroy it in Syria and Iraq its tentacles in other countries will hopefully tend to wither away. The radical Islamic terrorists in Europe take their instructions from ISIS in Syria, and maybe we can draw the terrorists in other parts of the world back to Syria where they can be eliminated.

We cannot continue with limited air strikes and tepid ground action against ISIS, because contrary to President Obama, ISIS is not a "contained JV" organization. Unfortunately, the West (U.S., Great Britain, France, etc.) and some Arab countries have to put together a coalition for a large scale military operation against ISIS. This could require tens of thousands of ground troops, armor units and air forces to annihilate ISIS.

The White House does not understand the serious threat ISIS poses to the free world. We cannot continue with a piece meal approach to an enemy that is growing and wants to destroy us.
