Terrorist groups need to be eradicated now
In 1933, we could have eradicated Nazism with 200,000 men before Adolf Hitler took over a country and carried out his racist murders on a continental scale. Have we learned nothing?
The Islamic State and al-Qaida must be wiped out before they take over a country, perhaps Pakistan, with its nuclear weapons. Their brand of extremism is religious, not racial, but the level of evil is the same as is the fanaticism. They are a threat to the United States. They practice genocide. Hateful as it now is to again send our troops into battle, the cost of victory will only increase as time passes.
