For weeks now, ISIS (or IS) or Islamic State has been capturing, torturing and killing people of all ages and all faiths that they encounter. Now they have reportedly beheaded an American journalist that was captured last year. I'm not sure that going in there with bombs and prompting another gulf war (or worse) is the answer, but something needs to be done. What is your solution for the ISIS crisis?

It may have been the result of our foreign policy, but we can't allow the barbarism that ISIS espouses to thrive. It is a threat to US National Security and we have no choice but to use the tools that we have at our disposal to stop it.
You are more likely to die from a beesting, a dogbite, or a leprechaun riding a unicorn, than ISIS. They are only a national security issue to the bomb and bullet makers.
Not National security when they're in your backyard, when between ISIS and Ebola the stock market has fallen so far that your parents can't live off their IRA and are bankrupt, and you can't go to supermarket without fear of being beheadded?
teamrn--Bravo!-----Many are saying that Obama does not really understand the ISIS threat. The man is not a moron. What are the questions that would be asked, if we knew that he did understand the threat?
He knows too well the consequences and he's not a moron; he just CHOOSES not to do anything. leading some to interpret that as ignorance. Au contraire, he has HIS agenda, is an inexperienced puppet.
Nothing bad? Nothing good, too. The sword cuts both ways! Proof that nothing 'bad' can happen is one beheadded American journalist. That is proof that 'Kumbaya' around camp fire doesn't work. 'Nature abhors a vacuum' so ISIS filled the void. Evil.
teamrn-- If you were responding to me, my remark was facetious.
wasn't able to tell; some believe that "Kumbaya" is our best policy
