You don't understand - the arms manufacturers AND all the other vendors who 
supply everything the army, navy, etc uses make money when these items are used 
in combat, which is one of the reasons our forces deliberately leave equipment 
behind when they vacate an area - the vendors and lobbyists pay the politicians 
to make sure they see to it the military does this and more to insure the 
government continually buys what the defense contractors sell - this is the 
military industrial complex Eisenhower spoke of - war is big business, make no 
mistake. As to your post, it don't mean shit where the Arabs get their arms 
from as long as our military keeps buying what they need from the American 
vendor.

    BTW MJ almost all the weapons used by those that we end up fighting bought 
their weapons( AK 47's and RPGs) from China or former Soviet Union countries. 
The US and our allies aren't making a penny off of the trouble makers. In 
fact,we end up barrowing money from China to finance the destructiobn of the 
weapons they supply to our enemies.

    MJ,
Ideally, it's not a good national policy to base an economy solely and 
exclusively on war and ammunition production.  But it is morally defensible to 
promote justice, freedom and equality in the world.  If there is injustice in 
the world, it is licit to stop the violators of these ideals.  The act of 
stopping the violators may unfortunately result in violence and wars.  But this 
is justifiable because the means and the objective end are both moral and for 
the common good.

You are being naive. The international community WANTS this situation - war is 
good for business. The more fighting there is the more money both governments 
and the arms manufacturers and arms dealers make, not to mention the lobbying 
groups who lobby the guv'ment on behalf of the arms makers and defense 
contractors.

 Mike,
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.

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 
apart.
