On Dec. 6 President Barack Obama attempted to assure Americans that he is applying the right array of tools to keep the citizenry as safe as might reasonably be expected from terrorism in a country featuring easy access to military-grade weaponry and a tiny percentage of the population willing to commit mass casualty assaults.Not only would the president find himself pressured and perhaps obliged to put American ground forces in Syria to close with and kill an organization that has imposed itself on a restive Syrian population, but he would be brutally exposed to the simplest of questions: If what you have lacked from the beginning of this conflict is a credible, professional ground force to eliminate the Syrian side of this Daesh pandemic, what exactly have you and your national security team done to try to build a coalition of the willing among regional and European states?Why would air-ground operations aimed at liquidating Daesh in Syria be long and costly?How long, then, will it take to defeat Daesh in Syria through airstrikes?
