Yeah you are right war is very costly. However if you look a the overall view of the situation, ISIS actions create instability to the entire Middle Eastern region not just to the people but the entire regional economy as a whole. A lot of American or even European businesses have locations there. If ISIS is eradicated the regional balance will somwhat back to normal. Economies and businesses will be vibrant again which is also good for americans, europeans and the rest of the world.War always is costly. Sending ground troops would probably hasten the degradation of ISIS. But obviously, there'll be some collateral damage. Those affected would swell the ranks of ISIS.
That probably is what the terrorists want. They want to draw the West into the conflict. Make it appear that they're at war with Islam. Should their ruse work, then they'll unite extremist in all countries and we'd have more problems than we do now. Best thing is to let the Arab league deal with the problem instead of arming Shia militia's which would transform this into a sectarian war that might never end.
But for how long?If ISIS is eradicated the regional balance will somwhat back to normal.
The main thing getting involved in the war against ISIS is that they would probably use a partial military just to see how hey function. The problem is that the feeling from Congress seeing if they want to get involved or not.In terms of economic issues, would a full scale war against IS represent a problem for the US and/or Europe? If they decide to get involved and use ground forces as well.

Israel could join in too if possible. I am not sure if ISIS attacked Israel or not if the US were to do a full scale war against ISIS then Europe, Canada, UK, and maybe Japan would join in. I am not so sure if Turkey would join the fight too or would they back off.You're assuming that only these two territories would fund a war against ISIS and I think that this is misguided. I'm fairly certain that there are countries from all regions of the world including the Middle East would help in whichever way they can to get rid of them.
I do think that a war against them would be good, the only bad thing would be the loss of life for civilians and the armed forces of the countries which will fight against them.
Israel can't join or everybody would put their differences aside and fight Israel. Israel and US knows this so they kept Israel out of the coalition.Israel could join in too if possible.

This is going to be another difficult battle to deal with. I remember watching something on the American Heroes Channel that I have on my TV talking about how different military tactics would be if the zombie apocalypse would be. Even though, this post has nothing to do with zombies the show was talking about how the military would start sending smaller teams to the battlefield.Yes. It would hurt. They want full scale wars so they can dent our troop status and take control/advantage of their home territory (guerrilla warfare) and play right into their hands. We need feint tactics and bait-and-switch to lure them out to make sure of minimum levels of casualties.
