The annual G20 economic summit became an emergency strategy session on combating Islamic State


The partners in rhe coalition wants the U.S. to send in more ground troops and special operations forces to help coordinate airstrikes. At the same time, the U.S. administration expects “some of our allies, including France, to intensify their efforts.” French warplanes already hit Islamic State targets in Syria on Sunday night. According to Frederic C. Hof, a former special advisor to Obama on Syria who now is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, U.S. may need to consider mounting a ground offensive with Western European support to go after Islamic State in Syria because it seems the militants cannot be defeated by only an air campaign. “ISIS in its Syrian headquarters needs to be taken down, and quickly,” he said.
