In 2003, America went to war withIraq. We won the war. We sacrificed during the tumultuous occupation, andleft at the end of 2011. Now, we could be heading back to Iraq with the rise ofthe Islamic State of Iraq andSyria (ISIS), a brutal terrorist organizationthat seeks to establish an Islamic state in the region. ISIS forces haveoverrun much of Northern Iraq and Syria. They recently engaged in an armed confrontation with Lebanon.
Earlier this week, NBC's JimMiklaszewski reported today that fighting ISIS in Iraq would be a 10-20 yearchallenge. It’s called the “long war” by the U.S. Military for a reason. Right now, the United States is delivering humanitarian aid to the Yazidis, a religious minority trapped in the mountains of Northern Iraq, and conducting airstrikes against ISIS forces.
Do you agree with this course of action by the Obama administration?
