The fact that they still have factional religious conflicts that are centuries old that have resurfaced is not our responsibility.
My earlier comments were and are that Bush is the original sinner here..not in that we went to war but rather in how we approached post war ops beginning in 2003. But that is different from what we are talkign about now. Obama is lost when it comes to foreign policy and everyone knows it. He is paralyzed. If he had even the slighest hint of a spine or resolve I dont believe ISIS would be so emboldened to believe they could stage an open all out assault on what is now an ally of the US with the US still present in the region.
You may have also seen...I support the decision to send in troops to protect the embassy...I just think there should be 100 times as many with orders to AGGRESSIVELY defend the embassy. I dont like tripwires.
