WASHINGTON (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he is open to sending U.S. troops to the Middle East to combat Islamic State fighters, but the potential Republican contender for 2016 presidential nomination isn't calling for them immediately.
Walker told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that he wouldn't rule out sending American forces abroad to confront threats to the United States or its allies. He also says President Barack Obama has not been aggressive enough in confronting threats from Islamic State fighters.

Some things to note. Afghanistan was invaded after 911. Iraq was invaded for hiding WMDs, nobody used 911 as an excuse. Also Egypt, Algeria, and Tunisia are US allies. Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen are already in states of conflict with US support for one side or the other. In other words the US has interest in invading any of these countries.
ISIS, a far more dangerous entity than Al Qaida and an indirect creation of the West
