Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss says ISIS carries out their threats, and killing them is the only option U.S. has.
"Killing them is the only option". That is simplistic and dangerous talk. Who's "them"? Does that include the Yezidis who went through forced conversion and thrown into the fight? Does that include the 12 year-olds who have been brainwashed by ISIS propaganda? Does that include the moderate fighters whose original goal is to fight against Assad but their group turned into something they didn't sign up for?
No war has ever been won by "killing them all", it is won by convincing the other side it is not worth it to continue fighting.
