Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
if we remove ourselves from the region, regional powers will eventually be forced to do their jobs and maintain stability. Saudi Arabia and Iran give us zero help in fighting Mexican drug gangs and narco states. this is their backyard, and it's their responsibility to solve the problem. the US has no role in a Middle Eastern holy war.

They should and hopefully they will. However at this point they cannot get it done without our help. At this pong we are the only force preventing a holocaust.then perhaps the region should do more about it.
I ultimately support whatever it takes to end the threat that will eventually end up on our shores as it did on 9/11/01.i don't support sending ground troops or even manned airplanes. we need to exit the conflict and let the region take care of it.
You will just have to keep an air sickness bad handy for now. In the long run I believe Assad is going down. The uprising had a reason.i don't support helping Assad in any way. when i think about my taxes going to fund that, it makes me want to vomit.
How do you know that. Do you have a military background?we'll probably find that out regardless of what we do. this strategy will not work, and will likely make the problem worse.
Perhaps, however it is not quite that simple. Most terrorism including with ISIS is financed by oil profits. That is why the present strategy might work in Syria as we are bombing their portable refineries...of which they are making profits of 2 million dollars a day on the black market. Cull their operating funds and you limit their capabilities. Part of the problem longterm is our addiction to Mideast oil. If the environmentalists in the US would get off our backs...the US could completely wean itself from Mideast oil and stop financing terrorism.but let's say theoretically that it does work, and we kill most of Islamic State. another will pop up, just like with Al Qaeda. then we'll be expected to do it again. and again. and again.
