President Obama tried but failed to pull out the American military from Iraq but far fewer Americans are in Iraq and Syria because Obama continued to use drones to fight against ISIL and ISIS. The drones pretty much rule the battlefields in the Middle East and will continue to rule until they are made ineffective. Russia and China can fight against drones. ISIL cannot.

The danger from Islam to America has been contained inside the Middle East. For the moment that lowers the threat to Americans but the threat is still a problem and will continue to be a problem until enough men die and it stops. The way for America to prevail is to kill enough of the evil people. Drones are good at that. Are they good enough?

Perhaps not. Drones are far more expensive than bullets but bullets require boots on the ground.
