U.S. should attack ISIS now

I write as a 93-year-old retired educator who worked in a classroom for 35 years, 32 of which were as the principal of an independent middle school and before that as a Naval Reserve Officer for eight years of active duty including five during World War II, two of which were aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise and having spent almost a year with the British Pacific Fleet as a communication liaison officer on board the HMS Tyne who was later recalled for three more years of duty during the Korean War.

I continue to be keenly interested in the contemporary operation of our U.S. foreign affairs, particularly the results of the American-led military campaign against the extremist group known as the Islamist State which has seized some territory in Iraq and Syria and is known as ISIS and one might say has declared war in that area.

However, it is very obvious that a contemporary military strike against sections occupied by the U.S. which has included attacks of chemical warfare, the results of which one could call another 9/11.

Personally, I strongly believe that this condition should never be allowed to keep dragging on for months as suggested by the U.S. Instead, the ISIS Islamic State should be brought under strong immediate control in order to prevent the ISIS from secretly sending representatives scattered throughout the U.S. in hopes of undermining our country.

The U.S. military must maintain control in this ISIS area even if it should develop into the characteristics of World War III and even if it should require the drafting of my fellow man.
