Who knew with a little effort you could possibly wipe these ISIS scumbags out. If only we had a president interested in getting the job done.
Western and more recently Russian airstrikes, chaotic leadership and mass defections have weakened the jihadi group to such an extent that it would be unable to repel even a small invasion force.
A terror analyst told Express.co.uk that the fanatics have vastly exaggerated their military strength and called on Western leaders to launch a co-ordinated fightback which would obliterate the hate group.
Dr Afzal Ashraf said ISIS has become its own worst enemy with its campaign of terror against the West, which has prompted an international backlash.
A US-led coalition including Britain has launched airstrikes against the extremist group which have killed thousands of its fighters after being outraged by its barbarity.
And Dr Ashraf said that another atrocity on the scale of this summer’s Tunisia beach massacre could result in boots on the ground and an end to ISIS’ evil grip on power.
He said: “This mythical state will disappear in a matter of hours once the international community decides to act.
“It won’t take very long at all to drive them, if not out of all of Iraq or Syria, then certainly the majority of their territories.
“They will hide in towns, but I would say do not to follow them as they would use innocent civilians as human shields.
“Leave them in these isolated settlements and they will soon lose control.”
Then Obama will take credit.
Last month it emerged that half of the group’s fighters have now been killed, whilst others are deserting en masse after their salaries were slashed.
Dr Ashraf, a researcher at the respected Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) think tank, added that assessments of ISIS’ military capabilities have been vastly overplayed.
He said: “They have built up this superhero status because of the way the Iraqi army just fell apart when they confronted it. But that was not very much to do with their ability to fight, it was to do with the Iraqi army, which just doesn’t have a leadership that inspires. Once you’ve got a General running off you don’t expect the soldiers to stand and fight.
The ones disappearing are probably part of the “migrant” wave currently invading Europe.
