In case you missed it from earlier this week, former NATO head Anders Fogh Rasmussen visited Big Think to discuss how NATO deals with terrorist threats and what the international community must do to combat ISIS. Rasmussen believes a ground invasion will be necessary to achieve victory but stresses that it should be the the armies of the region that lead the charge.

"The Islamic State [is] neither Islamic nor a state. It is a pure terrorist organization and I consider it an obligation for the whole of the international community to fight that terrible terrorist organization."
