One point not addressed is that the ISIS as defined by the various international conventions are illegal combatants.  They are not Soldiers. 

When captured, they are not PoWs.  They are defined as partisans which is another word for terrorist.  They do not have the rights of a PoW.  To be blunt, you can lawfully take them out and shoot them!  We need a leader in DC that will follow the conventions and treat ISIS accordingly.

I served for 21+ years in the military.  I have done a tour in Iraq.  In Iraq, we were under strict orders to not wear civilian clothing.  We had to stay in uniform so if captured, we were supposed to be treated as PoWs. 

Sadly, this administration and most Americans don't understand this. 

This isn't the first time we have fought radical Islam.  We defeated it back in the early 1800 when our young Navy took on the Pirates of the Barbary Coast.  The Marines still celebrate this in the Marine Hymn.  We defeated them again in the Philippines after the Spanish American War.  Maybe we just need to relearn how we did it then!
