As I mentioned to Fleetwood, the solution is to have an international force to 
eliminate IS, maintain the peace and stability in the land.  This should not be 
shouldered by the USA exclusively.  The Arab and European countries should 
contribute their share of troop strength in this endeavor.  As a matter of 
fact, the UN should send their own troops there too.

 Funny thing is... we had it won by 2008. We had an Iraqi army in training... 
yes training and relative calm and order established when our *Dear One* 
decided that He needed to fulfill his campaign promise to bring the troops 
home, before the Iraqis were really ready. Now we're in this current situation 
that Bush and everyone else warned would happen if we left prematurely. How 
long would we have needed to stay? Who knows? We still have troops in 
Duetschland and Japan and they aren't seen as occupiers but as allies. Four 
thousand lives, hundreds of thousands of minds and limbs, trillions of dollars, 
and hopes for a stabilizing force for peace in a region, flushed down the 
toilet for a campaign promise and now we may be need to return and do it all 
again or face a worse situation. Did you notice, barely mentioned in the news, 
that the troops are not coming home from Afghanistan by the end of 2014, as 
promised? Yes, now they're staying... indefinitely. Surprise surprise!

   You know that sign in gift shops, "you break it, you buy it"? Same thing 
applies here - We own the mess. I was a little naive about our intentions in 
Iraq when we went in the first time, but after I saw the deliberate sacking of 
their national museum, and have recognized since that we were solely protecting 
our interests, their culture be damned. This being the case, we will only 
attract those who need work, into the Iraqi army, not those who truly want to 
defend their country. Remember "Vietnamization", where we trained a similar 
army in S. Vietnam, to fight their own battles? The country was overrun in a 
couple of years. Same thing will happen in Iraq, if we don't land troops again. 
What a mess.

 Entrenched corruption in the Iraqi military is undermining the fight against 
the Islamic State.  This is the downside in relying on a questionable army to 
carry out the task of suppressing the Islamists.  If conditions get worse, US 
troops may end up fighting in Iraq again.

 In the meantime, Iran is secretly working on acquiring Iraq if things fall
