Republican and Democratic presidential candidates should be able to agree on one stark foreign policy reality: The tide hasn't turned in the war against Daesh (ISIS).The Pentagon has announced a capture/kill special operations force of about 200 soldiers, based in Iraq. But that's a small fraction of the Joint Special Operations Command force that was deployed there a decade ago to deal with a far smaller insurgent threat from Al-Qaeda in Iraq.In Libya, Daesh has doubled its presence over the past year to between 5,000 and 6,500 fighters, according to a report Thursday in the New York Times.Despite several years of growing U.S. concern about Libya, the American response so far has been feeble.Each day this week, Al-Bayan announced attacks in at least six different "wilayats," or regions, of the self-declared state.How should the United States and its allies combat Daesh wisely, without getting bogged down in an endless global land war?
