Imagine that you are advising President Obama as he develops his address to the nation on ISIS, what specific actions would you advise him to include in his strategy to deal with the ISIS crisis?
(Based on the article: U.S. Weighs Direct Military Action Against ISIS in Syria)

English is my second language & I have trouble understanding what the article is talking about

  1. Basically the article is debating whether the U.S. should send troops and bombs to attack ISIS in Syria and Iraq. ISIS has killed Americans, including the journalist it beheaded. Many feel that ISIS is a threat to the U.S.

    On the other hand, can we defeat ISIS -- at least without killing many more Americans?
