Kissinger: What U.S. must do to battle Islamic State

Interview reported in USA Today on 09/08/14 

NEW YORK – As President Obama prepares to address the nation on the threat by the Islamic State, Henry Kissinger says the United States needs to strike the terror group in retaliation for the decapitation of two American journalists, then eliminate it "as an operating force in the region."

In an interview with USA TODAY, the former secretary of State and adviser to a string of presidents describes that task as achievable in a reasonable amount of time — "if we do it with enough intensity" — and says the deployment of U.S. ground troops shouldn't be "necessary or appropriate."
He also cautions that the American objective should be carefully defined.
