And its not rhetoric. Im not saying what I am saying beacuse some polictian told me too.
I was anti Afganistan, anti Iraq and Anti Libya and was anti action against Assad.
ISIS on the other hand have pretty much taken thiss war to us wether we like it or not. And unlike Al Queda whos demands were pretty much "we want the west to leave the ME and stop supporting Israel" ISIS demands are pretty much "everyone convert to our version of Islam or die". I dont see that we have ANYTHING to negotiate with ISIS for.
Plus there are not some floating terrorist group. ISIS do actual own land land, they have actual control over a area.
As I asked and you did not answer, if we pack up and go home do you think ISIS will just leave us alone? Or will they just carry on carving there pathetic caliphate out and growing stronger?
Plus unlike Iraq and Afganistan most the ME want ISIS gone. Most of the people of Syria want ISIS gone, even Al Queada want ISIS gone.

Russia provided satellite Intel on this as well and shared it publicly. That was what put the brakes on Syria a couple years ago. Shortly after that, Russian sanctions, don't figure.
I took the gasing incident as the line Russia drew that we stepped over.
