Jeb Bush has a plan to defeat Isis that in no way sounds anything like his brother's plan to invade Iraq in 2003

Jeb Bush has said if elected president he will build an international coalition to take on Isis, including US boots on the ground.

If that at all sounds familiar, it's because his older brother George W also had a similar plan for the Iraq War.

Speaking at a military college called the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, Jeb said:

Radical Islamic terrorists have declared war on the Western world. We can't withdraw from this threat or negotiate with it. We have but one choice: to defeat it.

He added that US air strikes were not enough to defeat Isis in Iraq and Syria:

The United States - in conjunction with our Nato allies and more Arab partners - will need to increase our presence on the ground.

What could go wrong...
