ISIS can only be destroyed by air and ground attacks. And a recent Washington Post/ABC poll shows that a full 60 percent of Americans favor additional ground forces.
So I say to the GOP candidates, go ahead and say it. Air and ground attacks, along with other collation forces. Ditto for the congressional leadership. Outflank the White House. The public is behind this because the public wants to destroy ISIS.
There are a million difficult issues, both tactical and strategic, in this military campaign. But the American military is the best in the world. Unleash them. Destroy ISIS. Working with our allies, we will save the American homeland, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia from this evil.
This is war. Let's rally the country, and our friends overseas. Our friends, once again, will respect us. And finally, ISIS will fear us.
Most of all the message must be clear: We are not a helpless giant. We can do this. We've done it before. We can do it again.
If we want to destroy ISIS, then we can destroy ISIS.
