Should we just let it all Burn ?

We still have no understanding of their Culture and Customs.

We and our allies have lost many great people for Cities we just gave back.

If the Iraqis will not defend their own Nation...Why should We ?

Every single time we do anything it blows up in our face.

I know that ISIS will not stop. I know they eventually will head for Israel.

That is what I think we should prepare for.

I realize that some think we should not even defend Israel.

As much as I hate war. It seems the only conclusion I can arrive at is...

Let It Burn...

The problem with letting fires burn, they will grow and consume everything they can till there is nothing left or somebody/thing stops them.
This fire also has a lot of fuel, fuel that will cause the fire to rage globally

This is an ecological disaster, political and financial problem, and I am sure I have missed out on other things as well

Would you send in more troops ?

I realize the huge implications of letting it burn.

Just no longer willing to try and stop it.

Iraq as a country was invented by the League of Nations in 1920 and placed under British rule. You assume that there is a country for these people to fight for. We in the west made Iraq up. It has nothing to do with "letting it burn" because we "have no understanding of their Culture and Customs." There's a religious civil war taking place in Iraq. Many of us would like to believe that we can save the innocent and spare the helpless in conflicts like this but history has proven otherwise time and time again.

Seldom do our military interventions accomplish anything good for anyone yet we keep pretending that we're doing somebody an f'ing favor. Our intervention in the middle east has done nothing but create more animosity and ultimately terrorism.

There has been some reciprocal or unprovoked antagonism over the last three millennia, it is not like the area is a hippie commune.

Send in the Yanks to shore up the petrodollar?

No sadly I dont have an answer, letting it burn or treat the ME like an African nation that has little value?

Its a tough question, the part that annoys me most is it seems everybody who goes in to help only help for self gain.

First of all, if there's instability it is mainly because of the US , I said mainly.
And please oh please, I hope you( since you said "we") will leave the Middle East alone, at last. But of course you won't , war mongers, military complex and all... You are responsible but please just stay the f### out !

If so, I guess you're the reason why extremist hate you and want your destruction. You're blindly hating and wish the death of all Muslims ... Men, women , children. Just wow.. The ignorance.

Nobody said they wanted anyone to be killed so chill on the hysterics.

To try to assign blame to the American People is folly.

I hate to point out the obvious...But, Americans aren't chopping anyone's heads off.

We are the ones that had 3000 innocent people killed for no reason on 911.

The American People are not responsible for what's going on.

So would you include Israel in there as well? After all they are the ones that practically started modern day terrorism.

You are joking right? Like Ron Paul said it was blowback for decades of bombing nations in the ME.

You don't have to cut off heads when drones can kill from a high altitude.

Ok Buster, you can blame our government for lots of bad things in the Region.

But, you can't assign blame to the average Americans just living their lives.

I am guessing you would not defend Israel either.

Would you ?

Im sure Israel will find out soon enough that they have to sink or swim of their own merit and that God does not necessarily have their back nor does NATO.

Your quote




Let It Burn...




You obviously mean let it burn in a sea of rainbows and cotton candy farts. You are calling for an entire region of the earth to burn but want no one killed, how does that work?
