  •  Because no one else will (0+ / 0-)

    or can "deal" with things like this. As it has been for 75 years. And nature abhors a vacuum.

    •  Something must be done! (0+ / 0-)

      This is something, so it must be done!

      I wouldn't call what's going on in the ME a vacuum - maybe a vacuum of effective authority - but no lack of would-be authorities creating a pressure cooker.

      •  It is a very serious something (0+ / 0-)

        I realize there are lot of people here would rather the west disengage from the world and just worry about our shores, but that is naive and/or irresponsible. Standing by watching "the JV squad" turn into ISIS ISII really worked out well didn't it? There's a reason that John Ford resigned.

        There is certainly a vacuum in the ME. Who fills it is the problem. Right now it isn't anyone with the world's best interests, much less the West's in mind.

      •  It's all "Let's YOU go to war!" (0+ / 0-)
