Its all rather simple. The best way to dis-incentivize these would be terrorists is to obliterate the groups they'd be joining. However, our current administration has no interest in any such effort. The current air strikes with 'no boots on the ground' has so damaged ISIL that ISIL is about to knock over another Kurdish town on the Turkish border and has brought them to within a few miles of the outskirts of Bagdad. Consider this: The terrorists have always received funding from the muslim community but the real dollars come from the wealthy leadership of Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc. ISIL has been so successful it is outgrowing its need for such funding. That means they are no longer controllable. So the oil rich potentates are now trying to degrade ISIL (with US resources, blood and manpower) to get them back in line. Think about it.
One question not asked was how do we get Mexico to release our young Marine held in jail there for making a wrong turn on a freeway offramp. Apparently the large one is as little interested as the commander in chief. At least trying to do something on this issue would have given him a great boost-ignoring it says a great deal too! He's probably more focused on bridge closings to punish those not supporting him.
