No. last week the bombs hit a school full of kids. you cannot defeat isis with bombs!

Pro

Yes, there are always going to be casualties, but this will lower the moral of the ISIS fighters causing some of them to leave. Also, this will kill some of them and weaken their bases so they will have less weapons to fight with.

Ground troops would be much more effective against the isis militants. ISIS hide amongst civilians and you cannot choose who you bomb in a group of people

You should check out this other debate: Should the US attack ISIS with force? Nobody has answered the challenge, but I would be interested to see the debate between them.

No, we shouldn't bomb ISIS in Syria, Iraq or anywhere for that matter. Terrorism cannot be defeated with terror. Dropping a few bombs here there and everywhere isn't going to get rid of ISIS, kill 1 terrorist = 2 more terrorist take there place. There's a pattern, the more bombs we drop the more deluded individuals get recruited, the more we feed ISIS propaganda. War breeds terrorism. Have we not learned anything from our past actions?

What we should do is simple - sanction companies who are buying oil from them (They make 5 million dollars a day through oil rigs themselves!). Financially drain them. The majority of the people fighting for ISIS are mercenaries anyway and don't truly believe in the cause.
