I cannot imagine what else they could possibly do other than leave the country entirely to its own devices... which ain't gonna happen. Kinda makes me nostalgic for the by-gone days when armies and navies just met on a designated place of battle far from civilians (to the extent that ever actually did happen) and duked it out to the last standing man.
Nobody in this earth right now can defeat our military in the field, on the sea nor in the air... so they are trying to settle their beef(s) with us by hiding themselves amongst their own people... we're just doing the best we can.
