US Finally Getting Serious About ISIS?

The US may finally be getting serious about taking on ISIS.  Our military has begun launching missile strikes against ISIS forces in Syria from a base in Turkey.

Turkish forces have also begun attacking ISIS following a suicide bombing in Suruc, Turkey in July.  While both governments are stepping up their actions against ISIS, it seems both hope to eliminate the ISIS threat without having to seen their troops into direct combat.

While it has helped train moderate Syrian rebels as well as Iraqi forces, the U.S. military hasn't put any of its troops in combat roles — though Gen. Raymond Odierno, the Army's outgoing chief of staff, said this should be a real option if more progress isn't made against ISIS.

So far, the air campaign has been America's biggest tool in its fight. Turkey's cooperation in this regard, paved by a July deal between U.S. President Barack Obama and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan allowing for the expanded access, should be a big help.

What do you think?  Is this the type of action the US military should be taking against ISIS?  Let us know in the comments.
