It was about time, sooner some real action is taken it is better .Those guys one of the biggest threats today for everyone, they just grow too fast.
I also agree with you Lovelynightbird that roots needs to be taken care for, without that nothing can be done.

Not one American soldier should put their life on the line to destroy this group. Let the Arabs take care of if within themselves. It will keep them busy and give them a focus for their death wish lifestyle.

I understand your point here, but they can not take care for smaller problems, not to mention problem like this.
It is growing into the problem that gonna have impact on everyone.
