US-Russian marines set up bridgehead in E. Libya for campaign against ISIS

From the article: 
According to the scenario sketched in advance by DEBKA Weekly, large-scale US air, naval and ground units are to spearhead the new coalition's combined assault on the main Libyan redoubts of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia and other radical Islamist organizations. Cruise missiles strikes will blast them from US, British, French and Italian warships on the Mediterranean.
At the peak of the assault, large-scale US, British and French marines will land on shore for an operation first billed as the largest allied war landing since the 1952 Korean War.

Is this for real?  Still uncorroborated by other news agencies.  1000 SAS already deployed and a huge landing in the offing?  Seems about time we actually started fighting back.  There is other news that ISIS has reduced salaries because of a cash flow.  Seems to me we could have caused that to happen a long time ago.  Why have we waited so long?
