The West's failed strategy of starving ISIL of fighters

NY Times:

Thousands Enter Syria to Join ISIS Despite Global Effort

Nearly 30,000 foreign recruits have poured into Syria to join the civil war, stark evidence that an international effort to enforce antiterrorism laws is not diminishing the ranks of the Islamic State.
Other reports indicate that about a thousand new fighters a month join the group, which is about the number of the claimed deaths in the US air campaign against the group.    The current strategy not only fails to staunch the flow of fighters is it leading to a long bloody war because the West refuses to take more effective measures to destroy ISIL.  It has become a war of attrition where the West is providing the fighters and then killing them.
