One of the ways to defeat terrorism is to go after the leaders, it will dismantle the structure of authority. Another method is to go after the money and suppress the flow of funds that support the purchase of weapons and training. The third avenue is to disrupt their communication, to hack into their message systems in order to disrupt orders and recruiting. It will help to utilized any and all methods to defect ISIS.
The United States should keep trying to kill ISIS leaders. The group understands violence, and the U.S. and other countries did an effective job of killing top Al Qaeda officials. The group was decimated by drone strikes, and ultimately its spin-off organization, ISIS, came into being. ISIS, too, can be brought to its knees by constantly keeping its leaders nervous.
We should keep going after ISIS leaders, but the best thing we can do is to help stop ISIS from recruiting new people. We can do this by treating muslims with peace and compassion for a start. We don't want them to think we are the enemy. We also can help by intervening early.
No, we should not keep going after the leaders of ISIS because when one is killed, there is another in waiting. Fighting ISIS by killing its leaders is a futile task. We have to find another way to stop them. We should go after the thing that ISIS needs the most and that is the followers. If they don't have followers, they don't have people to commit these heinous acts.
