How can ISIS be defeated, if its opponents refuse to acknowledge that it is a RELIGIOUS movement? Annexing and losing territory, raising armies and consigning them to slaughter etc. does not address the heart of the matter: the ongoing rise of militant Salafist Sunnism that leads back to Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood.

I disagree, this is important religiously. In Islamic theology a genuine Caliph has to fulfil certain prophetic conditions, and suffering humiliating defeats at the hands of Satan's Minions is not one of them. Obviously some of the survivors will regroup and start again, so we can't slacken, but this is a genuine victory.
