Will’s Take: F-16s and F-18s Won’t Liberate ISIS-Controlled Cities


“You can’t just fly F-16s and F-18s over Mosul and Fallujah and liberate cities,” says columnist George Will. “They have to be liberated on the ground, and we’re not going to do it. Maybe we should, but we’re not.”

On Special Report, Will reaffirmed the need to get the Arab neighborhood involved in defeating the Islamic State. The alternative is continued Islamic State dominance: “We’re either going to get Arab armies involved, or those cities are going to remain in ISIS hands.”
