We could defeat Islamic State within a year. I know because I fought them

The brutal rise of the so-called Islamic State took everybody by surprise. I can remember sitting at my desk in London wondering who these people were and where they had come from. Isil forced themselves onto the world stage when they took Mosel and began their relentless march across Syria and Iraq. Britain and America were totally unprepared for the uncontained explosion of violence across the Middle East.

    We wouldn’t need to defeat it if Obama just kept a small contingent of troops there to keep the peace.

    Obama and Erdogan thought they could take over Syria like some Chicago ghetto turf just by backing one of the smaller rival gangs for show.
    Ooops!
