Well, I agree with you philosophically, unfortunately ISIS has already proven that they have no interest in just being left alone or allowed to do
their own thing. Their entire goal is to make the world submit under their swords, and they've proven how depraved and barbaric they can be in their
quest to reach that goal. It's a situation that can easily get worse if it isn't dealt with, and is simply left to play out however the cards may
I also agree with your comments on Saudi Arabia. They are one of the biggest exporters of terrorism on the planet, and have a very storied history in
the evolution of militant jihadist groups. There seemed to be some indication that they even had a hand in some of the chemical weapons attacks that
took place in Syria as well (at least as far as supplying extremist rebel groups). Yet the U.S never points it's finger at them because they are too
afraid of the economic consequences.
Iran is certainly worrisome as well (although I would argue they are far less of a threat to the U.S than ISIS or even Saudi Arabia).
The whole situation is one big cluster$*@#. Laying the blame game aside, I still think the "wait it out" approach is the wrong one, especially as
far as ISIS is concerned.
