Do you think the US should send ground troops to Iraq to fight ISIS. Why or why not?
Having spent 23 years as an infantry soldier you can't keep the ground without having boots on it.
There are no American troops in combat with IS. It These are all air power strikes. Iraqis themselves should retaliate rather peacefully bring about an end to this brutality and whatever you call it. After all, the U.S. trained them for 10 years, and it is THEIR country that's at stake.
I'd rather see the Arab states doing their bit on the ground but fear that in a few months time the first signs of mission creep will become apparent. If the air strikes can be effective - destroying the resources of ISIS, the oil and gas - and hence the money - there may be a slim chance for the Iraqi army to get the job done.
The problem will be Syria. If ISIS run for this country then the situation becomes very different.

With the news that a further 8 UK service personnel have died in Afghanistan in the last 24 hours it means that deaths in this war now exceed those due to the Iraq conflict. As a result calls are increasing for the troops to be pulled out. What are your views on the matter?
