While I do not support intervention, the sad fact is that we are in a bad situation for which receding may not prove a viable solution.
Somebody created ISIS, etc. May have been "us" (horse-shit use of the set in question, but nobody seems willing to abandon it), may have been "globalists"... who in hell can say, without a list of verified names? This is one way in which Theye can so effectively deflect attention from themselves. The "U.S." created ISIS. Bullshit. I am the USA, yet had nothing to do with ISIS' creation. Methinks you get the point?
I don't suppose we owe anyone in the middle east anything, but from a strictly practical standpoint we are perhaps behooved to consider the broader implications of leaving ISIS alone. Will it die on the vine? Not if Theye continue to pump billions into the cause, perhaps with the aim of growing them such that they are then able to mount a credible offensive against America. All very speculative, I grant you, but very plausible as well.
The question is whether pulling out will hurt us more in the long run. The fact is, we're painted into what is likely a very bad corner. Just turning our backs to an ISIS that continues to receive major funding runs the risk of it consolidating power throughout the middle east, getting hands on not only nukes, but delivery instruments, and so forth. This is not empty speculation. Consider the apparent goals of those Wahhabist vermin: to take over the world. They may be idiots, but they are clever and treacherous all the same. If they are left with free run, you know they are going to go for the city-busting weapons, as well as gases, biologics, and so forth.
I don't know where proper sense lies in all this. I can see valid reason in both arguments, but for me a huge factor is whether the jihadis would continue to grow in the absence of funding from the US. I strongly suspect that they would because I do not believe Theye would simply stop funding them, but would only change the channel. I think it is dangerously naive to assume that ISIS is the product of America. It is the product of globalist interests who used America as the instrument. We withdraw and Theye find a new path.
