Defeating ISIS: The US is ‘very near the goal line’

This month, Iraqi forces ousted Islamic State fighters from Hawija, the group’s last remaining stronghold in Iraq. In Syria, U.S.-backed Syrian fighters pushed the Islamic State out of 80 percent of Raqqa, once the self-proclaimed capital of its terrorist caliphate.

The Washington Examiner spoke with the man leading the Air Force portion of the fight in Iraq and Syria, Air Force Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft.

A former F-15, F-22, and MQ-1 Predator pilot, Croft is now the deputy commanding general of the Air, Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command for Operation Inherent Resolve in Baghdad.

    Defeating ISIS, while needed to be done, is not going to make much difference in Islamic attacks. Islam, at it’s core is the problem and unless major changes in the way Islamic teachings are initiated and Qur’an reinterpreted to omit the commands to spread Islam by whatever means necessary, Islamic aggressions will continue as they have been for the past 1,500 or so years. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to look at the history of Islamic aggressions and expansion since it’s creation by a militaristic, self appointed prophet of something referred to as Allah, which is the name given to the sacred black stone that Mohammed’s Pagan Arab tribe worshipped.
