This will not happen without active, serious U.S. military actions on the ground as well as in the air. We have much stronger capabilities, and ISIS, Al Nusra and others can be quickly dislodged from important territories, if only we have the will. Military force drove Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait in less than two months, and he presumably had a large, well-trained fighting force. Presently, we are sending boys to do a man's job — we attempt to train those in the region who we hope will be good guys so they can do the job for us. Alas, they have sectarian rivalries and little mutual trust. Already we have seen our "trained" allies run from the battle, usually leaving the weapons we supply behind. This will not defeat ISIS; indeed, it will make it stronger, more feared and more attractive.
