It's invasions all the way down

Bleak concluding quote in excellent Wall Street Journal analysis of Western options regarding ISIS --

U.S. military officials say the overall changes under consideration so far are a refinement rather than a change in strategy against Islamic State. “There is only one thing that is going to beat these guys and that is a ground army,” said a military official. “And there are only two ways to do that: provide one yourself or rely on someone else’s. It is either invade Syria or do what we are doing.”
