    Ok, well we need invade Mexico then because the narcotics gangs down there are even more evil and brutal than ISIS.

    Despite your implication not at all. But to a hammer the world is nails, eh?

    A guilty conscience is it's own accuser. It would not be the first time the right objected to US troops in Africa.

    The "right"? Every single one ??

    President Bush signed into law an agreement to assist the Ugandan government to fight the LRA and sent in military advisors to assist them.

    When Obama proposed a law to further assist Uganda in stopping the LRA, it passed both the Senate and House unanimously.

    Sounds like you get your information from the wrong places.

They behead more people than ISIS, should we go into Mexico with boots on the ground? What about the drug cartels in Columbia? Depending on the year violence is either the number 1 or number 2 cause of death in Columbia so should we go in there? As a comparison violence still doesn't even make the top 20 causes of death in Iraq.

    Point being the world is still a place that has a lot of very dangerous groups in it, many of them of them so brutal they make ISIS practically look like peaceniks. So why do we need to significantly intervene in Iraq again but not these other places?
    Sometimes I think we should go into Mexico with boots on the ground, tanks on the ground and planes in the air, and clean out that rat hole.
