International military coalition and humanitarian support
A broad coalition with many countries to take on this terrorist structure of IS, which is an unacceptable evil power by all standards anywhere in the world, has been established. Led by the US, which has conducted more than 150 air strikes until now, some 40 countries have agreed to be a part of the coalition. However, those countries and their roles have not yet been disclosed.
Any US and international offensive on ISIS would not include foreign troops on the ground. The U.S. will use proxies such as the Iraqi army as well as moderate opposition in Syria to wage the war against the terrorists. The coalition will have a multipronged approach including sharing intelligence, identifying and cutting funds to IS, as well as air strikes. The international coalition helped Iraqi leaders to establish an inclusive government; however, Syria remains to be dealt with as it is still the source of concern for the security of the whole region. This has been exacerbated by the presence of IS.
The plan would include airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, but the Syrian President Assad will not be part of the campaign as he has lost legitimacy of being the leader of his country because he has committed atrocities against his own people. The international coalition will require soldiers on the ground. The Peshmerga forces and the Iraqi army would be deployed to regain control over the liberated areas from the hands of the IS.
U.S. Coalition would need Sunni states to help, including Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey. The U.S. has so far been focused on assessing the situation on the ground, and ensured the security of American facilities and personnel in Iraq as well as other strategic structures. The US needs to develop a moderate Sunni opposition that can control territory and can be cooperative. The ISIS militants have the capability to conduct terrorist attacks in the U.S. and European countries if allowed to grow freely. However, currently it lacks capability to launch such campaigns. Undefeated, the IS can evolve into a direct threat to the world community as well. Meanwhile, Kurdistan is in dire need of humanitarian help due to the tremendous number of the IDP. Until now, the international community has been quite responsive in this regard. Thousands of tons of food and other necessary daily articles have been transported to the Kurdistan airports to later be distributed among the displaced people. It seems that the international plan is to help refugees and later to eradicate the evil power of the ISIS once for all.
