Odierno: ISIS Fight Will Last ’10 To 20 Years’

“The Army’s top officer believes the fight against the Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS or ISIL, will last ‘10 to 20 years,’ an expansion of the timelines generally offered by the Obama administration. Gen. Ray Odierno, the Army chief of staff, added that the solution to the militant group cannot come entirely by military means. ‘In my mind, ISIS is a ten to twenty year problem, it’s not a two years problem,’ he told reporters Friday. ‘Now, I don’t know what level it will be a problem, but it’s a long term problem.’”
