You're never going to kill all of ISIS Macduff. We can sit there for another 20 years and that place will still have terrorists (if you want to proof just look at Afghanistan). We've tried this strategy before and it's time we started learning from our mistakes.
The best we can do is decimate their infrastructure (which we've done) and come back home. We can continue to supply the Kurds material support in the meantime. No one is suggesting we stop doing that. In fact Trump has already said clearly he doesn't intend to abandon the Kurds and will continue to send them aid. But it's time we brought our troops home. This is Syria's problem. Not ours. There is no reason why another American should die over there.
Hasn't Afghanistan taught us this?
