In Paris last week, the islamists lost less than 10 warriors while the West lost 130+ civilians and 350+ civilians were seriously injured.
If we don't want to lose, then this disproportionate result needs to be reversed, and it can be with a different strategy.
The West needs to annihilate ISIS witha massive and sustained bombing campaign which levels all th e territory they control and do so even if there is collateral damage.
WE HAVE SUPERIOR AIR POWER AND WEAPONRY; WE SHOULD USE IT.
ISIS territory should be made to resemble Berlin and Dresden after WW2, or the surface of Mars.
Then, the West needs to purge itself of dual nationals who support sharia in the West, by deportation.
Then all muslim clerics which profess sharia shoukd be closed and prosecuted for sedition.
Nothing less than these actions will halt the enemy.
And let's not forget the elephant in the room: Iran and its nuke program.
There should be no doubt in the West that an islamist nuclear bomb will make the attack in the Bataclan look like a pin-prick.
We can and should do what needs to be done before that happens so it never happens.
