Christians and other minorities are being slaughtered. This cause is much more important than political gains or oil in which we taken action in the past. We need to stop this dangerous group from growing and continuing to commit genocide. In my view, deploy a large force with help from other nations and drive these radical Islamists into the ground. As a veteran, I have come to realize that the only thing these enemies understand is force. A 3 week, 24 hr bombing campaign should both destroy ISIS and weaken Assad's forces so that a diplomatic solution can eventually take hold. The longer we wait, more ground will be lost and the killing will only increase.
