So far it's just "Band-Aid" fixes for this growing threat of radical Islamic ISIS, conquering and subjugating all in it's path. And we can't control it with sporadic air strikes since the enemy fighters simply go home to dinner after a day of fighting. And we can't target their villages, mosques, hospitals and other. So where do we go from here? It seems our best recourse is to strengthen our internal national security. But will that halt the growing radical Islamic threat ("Mujahidin") from infiltrating and influencing our culture and our institutions? Past Christian history tells us it was the "Church" who stamped out paganism, witchcraft and other. And perhaps the Church is needed again for this purpose.
