"There is no reasoning with them, there is no containing them, you have to kill them"

“We had a real opportunity when Fallujah fell,” said former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey. “We didn’t know how bad the Iraqi army really was, but we knew they weren’t very good. The administration had the warning and it didn’t act and that is really a tragedy.”

Now, says Jeffrey, the U.S. has to work both to counter ISIL and to support a new government in Iraq.
“It wouldn’t hurt for him to be more aggressive in use of force where the ISIS guys are moving forward,” Jeffrey says of President Barack Obama, whom he largely praises for recent moves to counter ISIL. “That threatens us, it threatens the Shia, it is a humanitarian issue and potentially it threatens the embassy.”

As for ISIL he believes there is “no limit to their ambitions.”

“You have to kill them,” Jeffrey says. “They never stopped in Iraq even when I was there in 2010 and 2011, they had been totally defeated and they had lost their population, we were on their trails and they still didn’t give up. There is no reasoning with them, there is no containing them, you have to kill them.”
