Paris attack aftermath: talk turns to war

Writing for the journal Foreign Policy, the retired four-star US Navy admiral and NATO supreme allied commander James Stavridis said Article 5 should be invoked and that the Allied Joint Force Command in Naples, Italy, which directed the air war against the ousted Libyan regime ,should direct operations against IS.
"There is a time for soft power and playing the long game in the Middle East, but there is also a time for the ruthless application of hard power. It is NATO's responsibility to recognise our current moment qualifies as the latter to direct massive operations against IS in Syria and Iraq," he wrote.
