Send Congressional relatives first. If their children/grandchildren are worth sacrificing, then it is probably a necessary war. 2 years ago from a Democrat in Reston, VA
No. ISIS is killing more Islamic folks in the middle east and, "conquering," local (middle eastern) territory. The various regional military forces should be dealing with their own problems. 2 years ago from a Democrat in Serenada, TX
Yes but make sure our troops understand that there are many innocent people who aren't terrorists and should not be hurt in any way; verbal, physical or emotional. 2 years ago from a Democrat in New York, NY
Intelligence about ISIS is critical; I would favor sending a fairly significant number of special ops forces into the areas held by ISIS in Syria and Iraq both to wage a guerilla type of action and to gather concrete intelligence on where ISIS forces can... 2 years ago from a Democrat in South Burlington, VT
We should not physically fight with ISIS until they come onto our grounds, but ally with other European and Middle Eastern countries that are against ISIS to help take ISIS down. 2 years ago from a Democrat in Ivy, VA
No we need to think of the civilians in Syria before going over there and bombing them. 2 years ago from a Democrat in Kenilworth, NJ
Yes but we need to be committed to training the local military and creating a politically and economically stable country in Syria and Iraq so that they are no longer breeding grounds for groups like Daesh (ISIS). 2 years ago from a Democrat in Olympia, WA
Yes, but only if we are going to fight for an ultimate victory. After that use the same process that was used at the end of WWII in Germany and Japan. 2 years ago from a Democrat in Alice Acres, TX
Send in elite spec ops teams and eliminate high profile targets and cripple their infrastructure online and physical chain of command. 2 years ago from a Democrat in Denver, CO
