UNITED STATES, Nov 11 – Sen. John McCain argued Tuesday that the fight against ISIS, which includes a recent increase in U.S. troop deployments to Iraq, isn’t going as swiftly as it should. “This sort of gradual increase and involvement that we’re going through reminds me of another war a long time ago, in Vietnam when we just gradually increased our involvement,” the Arizona Republican and Vietnam veteran told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day.”

McCain, an outspoken critic of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, said Obama’s current plan will not meet the United States’ goal of degrading and defeating the terrorist group, saying more trainers and special forces are needed. “ISIS is winning — at least in the eyes of the young radicals all over the Middle East,” he said.
