Isis members are more likely to be killed by other loony members.......they will all die.

"Air war can only achieve limited objectives.
So what is a credible plan – to use Obama’s famous terminology of the operation against Al-Qaeda – of degrading and dismantling the Islamic State? Very little because unlike Al-Qaeda – but like the Taliban – the IS is an indigenous phenomenon with a large area under its control. If pushed out from the cities through ground operations, they can regroup in the country side. That too is a distant goal because after the long conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan there is little desire left to engage in open-ended ground operations.
Air war can only achieve limited objectives."

"Events of recent weeks, however, point to the need to pull Syria out of the quagmire it has sunk into in the last four years with signs of further turmoil and destruction. The world’s most powerful nations have failed to find a solution, resulting in 300,000 deaths and millions of Syrians rendered homeless. The IS has only aggravated their pitiful situation."
