    Interesting read. I don't think that we should allow ISIS to set up a government. My concern would be for the people that would live in that 'country.' I would hope that there would be a better option than that.

    I think the genuine idea is that a passive-aggressive style is better. Bombing the shit out of them will result in fuelling the anger: thus fuelling the amount of violence and the amount of people that join...

    So the way to let them collapse is to allow them to try and make a state - but make it very difficult for them, so difficult that ISIS just splits, fractures and dissolves into multiple little groups which don't have the funding to do anything.
