Given that the War on Terror resulted in more jihadists at the conclusion than at the beginning, how is the West supposed to manage ISIS and similar terrorist organizations.

As seen in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade, military action seems to breed more terrorists than it eradicates. On the flip side, it seems as though the only way to get rid of ISIS is to stand them down with aggressive military action. Given this paradoxical situation, what - in your opinion - can the West really do to eradicate ISIS and stabilize the democratic, culturally homogenous nation of Iraq?

Think of the many terrorist organizations scattered throughout the Middle East as ants in your yard. No matter how much you fight them, they eventually spring back up because it is impossible to kill every individual "ant." Therefore, your only option in dealing with these ants is to eradicate them as they come up, and send them back into hiding for the time being. In our current scenario, I really think the only thing we can do is carpet bomb them and their ammunition posts until they A) die out B) recede after recognizing we don't stand for their evil videos and beheadings and we won't hesitate to beat them to a pulp, or C) damage their supplies and equipment heavily enough to render them harmless. If they spring back up eventually, which they will, we use the same policy. It is the only reasonable solution for these monsters.
