Rob O’Neill — the SEAL who shot Osama Bin Laden — said during a Tuesday interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that there will continue to be terror attacks like the ones in Brussels and Paris until a coalition of ground troops destroys the ISIS “hive” in Raqqa, Syria.

“It seems like they do this every few months,” O’Neill noted. “It’s going to continue to happen every few months.”

“We’re swatting at the bees, but we need to really take out the hive. And the hive is in Syria.”

“We need a plan to get into the Raqqa because that is where the caliphate, the capitol of the caliphate, is,” he explained. “We can decide if we want to fight them now or let our grandkids fight them. We’re in a long war.”

Despite the existence of special forces in the region, O’Neill maintained that “we don’t have enough people on the ground to to tell us what’s going on.”

“There are special operations targeting high value individuals, but we’re going to need more of a big punch to take out all the low-level guys.”

“We’re going to need a lot of people to go in there and fight them.”
