Are we to believe that a few hundred Jihadists have been able to bring about the lowering of coalition goals?

Are we to believe that a few hundred Jihadists have turned the world's policeman into the world sanitary cleaner?

Are we to believe that a few hundred Jihadists might have rendered future interventions by the US less likely?
