Haha. The fact that you think we have “proven friends in the region”…. is troubling. What? Israel? The country that sent exactly zero troops to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. France got dirtier in Afghanistan than Israel did. So who does that leave as a “proven friend” in the middle east? Saudi Arabia. The Country that gave us 16 of the 19 9/11 hijackers? Wake up. Iran is the only country there, fighting ISIS. You are still playing Bush ball, and losing.

I’d say all previous contracts between the U.S. and Iraqi gov’t are null and void due to their negligence. Another option is to support the Peshmerga and Sunni forces that helped us rout the Taliban from Iraq, in the West and North. That strategy could have a beneficial side effect of cutting off and weakening the ISIS forces around Baghdad/Shia Southeast areas of the country such that the Iraqi gov’t forces might be able to make some progress against ISIS as well.

Who cares? It’s our home. This would be like people in Indonesia worrying about all the Texans currently in the North Dakota oil patch. “Who will make them go home?”

How can a moron ahole like yourself even suggest such thing? Well I am not surprised coming from leftist Reuters. I guess you are getting too used to have this silly djihadi pimp as your leader in the white house ready to give a BJ to Iran mollahs. shame on people like you!

That is most of us. Our policy ad that of the rest of non-believers should be to encourage Isis and the revolutionary guards to kill each other, maybe supply short range weapons to the losing side.

We have not interest in either the Revolutionary Guard or Isis or any other militant ideologs having any power or technical knowledge.
