Islamic State must be stopped. Now.

To the editor: One beheading after another, and now a prisoner burned alive. How long before we come to the conclusion that the Islamic State leadership has forfeited its right to live on this Earth and must be bombed into oblivion? ("Jordan executes 2 prisoners after pilot burned alive by Islamic State," Feb. 3)

Arming Islamic State's opposition with whatever weapons it takes and conducting a relentless air campaign against the group are the only civilized responses I can think of.

This is not the time for contemplation or discussion; it is the time for decisive action, and our president has got to be made to realize that.

Richard F. Corlin, Santa Monica
