No one is asking you to close your mind, just show some logic, facts, or sources to back up your posts.

The US is not behind everything. There is a great desire to create conspiracies out of everything. The support the US gave ISIS is by not doing anything in Syria, not the other way round.
Sounds like a humanitarian disaster.

My assessment of the videos I saw were relatively few people walking up a mountain. I saw no one who appeared to be suffering. There was the Iraqi relief helicopter with crowds of men pressing upon others, all trying to receive food. It was a brief video clip, lasting only seconds, which was just as easy to stage as when a dozen Iraqi men in polished leather loafers and gabardine slacks chanted for Americans rescuing them from Saddam several years ago. Back to the present, I saw carefully selected images designed to tug at our heart strings with reporters telling us of a situation far graver than the images actually depicted. The inconsistencies or contradictions are now resolved when the dots get connected. For America's sake, I'll say no more. But to my fellow Christians, I advise you to use caution before handing over the Word of God to be trampled yet again by the money-hoarding warmongers who wage war to gain and/or maintain a position of wealth. "The love of money is the Root of all evil."

Only you have to ignore a lot of "dots" for your conspiracy theory to make sense. As is the case with pretty much all conspiracy theories.

Touché. And right back atchya!

Admittedly, I hadn't had my morning coffee yet at the time our President made his announcement. But somehow it still makes sense out of a whole week of senseless media reports, even after I've had my coffee. My comment about the payroll was said in jest though. I'm not an idiot. I understand how the dots must be blurred for success to happen. And another thing I understand is that we only perform humanitarian acts when it's in our nation's greater interest to do so. The Fat Cats don't spend unless there will be a return on their investment.

Read CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HITMAN by John Perkins. There is a process to their grubbing. A process that often leaves Congress and the White House in the dark as they get carried along like a menagerie held captive for the purpose of the real powers that be--the fat cats.

Complicated problems are not easily solvable.

Oh please what? The use of privatized armies (cough) I mean contractors by the United States (my country) should alarm all citizens. And if they would use them against Americans in the time of Bush's Katrina to protect the possessions of the wealthier parishes, nothing is beyond the scope. I suspect they have become the new Praetorian Guard.

I wasn't addressing solving a problem. I am discerning what's happening here. Americans were fooled into war with Iraq twice before. It isn't cynical to question the allegiance of our leaders.

Iraq: What to do?

Sorry. I'm still using iPhone 4s. Either the small screen or my fat thumbs caused me to miss the comment above my last reply and tap my previous comment. I think my new comment makes clear to whom and what I was replying. iPhone 6 supposedly comes out next month. I'm sure I'll get one by Christmas.

I find it interesting that the Translation for whatever Arabic name ISIS or ISIL calls itself, fits neatly into its English acronym. Coincidence? Messaging is key.

... why are you trying so hard to find food for your conspiracy theories? It's just an abbreviation of a name, that happens to have an English acronym. How the hell is that anything more than a complete utter coincidence?

al-Dawlah al-ʾIslāmiyyah fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham

ISIS/ISIL are commonly translated as follows:
Islamic State in Iraq and Syria
Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham
Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant

where Syria is rather too narrow, so some say "Greater Syria", to avoid the misperception that ISIS would be content with taking Iraq and Syria.
al-Sham and the Levant are almost the same words. Levant is Italian and historically referred to the Mediterranean lands east of Greece. al-Sham is Arabic and historically was comprising roughly the areas of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and a bit of Israel.
I guess the Arabs just did a poor job of differentiating their language more from the Indogermanics.
