Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says ground forces need to be deployed immediately to defeat ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Speaking on John Catsimatidis' radio show on Sunday, Giuliani slammed President Barack Obama for not getting more "boots on the ground."

"It will have to require, yes, boots on the ground, which the president is constantly saying he never wants to do," Giuliani said. "Well maybe we’re going to lose more lives if we don’t put boots on the ground — in fact, we will. These people see our weakness and they’re taking advantage of it."

He also said the president had essentially conceded defeat against ISIS by using a timetable for withdrawing troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"I think they’re emboldened now by Obama’s lack of real response, his worry about killing civilians," Giuliani said. "I don’t want to kill civilians, you don’t want to kill civilians, but if these people are using civilians as shields, which they’re doing, we’ve got to take them out."

He drew upon the legacy of previous leaders during the Civil War and World War II.

"You know (former President Harry S.) Truman ordered the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and that killed all civilians, but it saved a million American lives," he said.

"An American president has to think like that. He’s got to think for America, that’s who he has to protect first, then everybody else."
