I by no means blamed you personally.....But I was awaiting this response. Bring this garbage to America and see how fast the citizens rally to take this issue OUT right and NOW......People just sit on their couch expecting the "professional" military to handle the issues....Good luck with that, how's it working so far?

The issue of ISIS is not an issue of Sunni Vs. Shia . today you can see tens of thousands of Sunnis fighting against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria .
A divided Iraq is the worst thing that could happen to Iran's interests in the region and thats for sure not the answer to these problems .
Iraq is not exactly a united country , but one thing for sure : they can still overcome these issues and haven't yet entered the "hopeless phase" as you said .
Please note that this is not a "civil war" . this is terrorism 2015 version . not that Shia-Sunni rift doesn't exist , it does , but ISIS is not related to it .
It's a humanitarian issue, not Muslim or any race or religion. When people of all religion, race, and nationalities will respect the lives of their fellow man...then progress can be made.
