Speaker of the House John Boehner believes that American troops will have to fight the ISIS on land. He said “At some point somebody’s boots have to be on the ground…instead of training Syrian rebels and relying on other countries, those boots would likely have to be Americans.” This opinion very much contrasts that of the Obama administration which has insisted it will not place American troops on ground in another war in the Middle East for weeks. In a poll that the Washington Post conducted earlier in September, the majority of Americans support the air strikes against the ISIS. The same poll also reported that most Americans believe Obama has been too cautious in his approach to fighting the ISIS.
