Dick Morris to Newsmax: 'This is Gulf War III'

Defeating the Islamic State (ISIS) will take a multinational effort, but the United States will have to supply a large amount of the force, political analyst Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV.

"This is Gulf War III," Morris said Monday on "Newsmax Prime."

"I could see France putting in 20,000 or 30,000 and Britain 5,000 or 10,000 and so on, but America will certainly have more than anybody else, and perhaps a majority, but not 99 percent," he said.

Morris said a "skeletal force" will have to be left behind to ensure ISIS doesn't re-emerge, but in the meantime the United States should be arming the Kurds as a ground force and carpet bombing the oil fields from which ISIS is making $15 million a month in revenue.

In light of Friday's deadly attacks in Paris, Morris said, "This is a war, and we have to win this war. This is no longer just a regional thing or some grizzly beheadings on the Internet. … They're demonstrating an ability to strike us anywhere."

Morris compared a terrorist cell to the HIV virus.

"It swims through the bloodstream, basically harmlessly, you don't get sick, and the terrorist gang can pull off some minor stuff but nothing big," he said. "But when the HIV virus latches on to a cell or a terrorists latches on to a country, they use the DNA of that country or of that cell to be empowered. They use the landmass, the population, the taxation, resources, the import/export trade, the intelligence apparatus, the military forces, they use all of that and suddenly they become capable of a 9/11 or a Paris attack."
