    You're assuming they will be embroiled in a decades long struggle against Sunni terrorists. Nonsense. They'll slaughter a million or so and rule Iraq just as they do Iran.

    I'm not sure how you forgot that part of your claim.

    Personally, I don't think he's doing enough. Can we really afford a full-blown terrorist stronghold in the Middle East? Pay now or pay bigger later.

    Edit: I'm sure not well-informed about what's going on, or about Iran, but if Iran will handle it? I say let 'em have at it.
    Not a good idea. Iran will simply grab and consolidate the oil rich south and west and be done with it. We will have made Iran more powerful, ISIS will still be in power in the North (probably turning to Jordan) and neither of those are good for the region or the world.

    If by neocons you mean Obama, Clinton, and all the rest of the administration cheerleaders during the Arab Spring uprisings...well...sure...I suppose so.

    You dont seem to have any reading comprehension, I already said it doesnt matter if its a year (and Iran never killed millions so you are totally exaggerating as usual) or decades (which will probably happen since the Sunnis and the Kurds wont give up without a fight and they got weapons to match the Iranians), as long as we are out of it. Its none of our business to be over there.

    Withdraw every single US citizen/soldier/diplomat immediately and never return.
    Close any embassy or "point of interest" the US has there, and vacate the country completely.


    Now.
    Never reurning is not an option.

    And by doing so we'll say to future allies that we can't be trusted. Allowing Iraq to fall will have negative concequences for decades to come.

You cannot condemn Russian aggression in Ukraine, in support of those who want them to intervene and then support US aggression in Iraq. In both cases, internal divisions are leading to civil unrest and "revolution". It's not America's place to choose sides in a civil war. But protecting American interests, nationals and property in Iraq is perfectly reasonable and expected.
    Was a terrorist army 10,000 men strong invading The Ukraine?

    There isn't a terrorist army 10,000 men strong invading Iraq either. This "army", if you consider it one, is made up primarily of Iraqi Sunnis, many of whom have been fighting in Syria. This is an internal, religious, political conflict among Iraqis determining what kind of country they want going forward. Those who don't want to be ruled by terrorist thugs and murderers need to stand up and be heard. I believe they will be.
