Iraq Again?

There seems to be a move to push the USA to enter the new civil war in Iraq. I want us to stay out of this Sunni, Shiite war.

I do understand that this war will be really bad for the people of Iraq and I especially feel for the Christians who are likely to be caught in between the Sunnis and Shiites. I would support helping the Christians get out of there, perhaps by providing green cards to any still in Iraq but beyond that I do not see anything positive that we can do there and I do not even see how we can help ourselves over there, we certainly do not need the petroleum nor do I see a threat to us from Iraq. The ISIS are not international terrorists who threaten us, this is a war between faction in Iraq, let's stay out.

Time to start doing nothing which we should have started doing long ago.
