Kasich believes we need to communicate the values of western civilization and destroy ISIS in a coalition on the ground immediately.
“I’ve also talked about the battle of ideas and we’re increasingly beginning to wonder about why people affiliate with ISIS. When people have no meaning in their lives they begin to do things that sometimes can be totally crazy. And so I believe that the west along with our moderate Muslim friends need to communicate that we’re about civilization, we’re about life, those kinds of things. But immediately destroy ISIS in a coalition on the ground. You mark my words we will ultimately have to do it and the longer we wait the more complicated and the more costly it will be.”
