The Situation in Iraq

Okay, so this group ISIS is overrunning large sections of Iraq, and may well take over most of the non-Kurdish parts.

Many here and elsewhere believe that we (the USA) need to act to protect that government. Also pledging support to the Iraqi government are the Ba'athist regime of Bashar Assad, and the Ayatollahs of Iran. ISIS is also fighting a war with al Qaeda in Syria at the moment, and at this point in time are probably the world's most accomplished killers of al Qaeda.

So, if we do what so many think we should do, we will be allying ourselves with al Qaeda, Ba'athists and the Ayatollahs.

This is more fucked up than fizbin. This is more fucked up than a German porno. In fact, I think we can safely say that our foreign policy has jumped the shark.

I think it may be time to admit that the Middle East is too much for us to handle, and to get the Hell out.
