    Default Iraq is falling back into chaos.

    Not sure if this belongs in serious discussions or not. If it does, moderator please move it.

    I've been watching this on the news recently. The terrorist group ISIS has been marching from Syria into Iraq, bent on conquest. So far they've managed to capture a number of Iraqi army bases, and get their hands on military weapons such as tanks. The Iraqi soldiers have already fled in a panic, and didn't fight back much. Does ISIS represent a major threat to the US itself (in terms of possible future terrorist attacks), or what about possible terrorist attacks on our allies throughout the world (Britain, France, Germany, South Korea, Japan, etc), or is this terrorist group's main interest in just turning Iraq into a Sunni majority country (currently the Shiite Muslims are the majority of the population), and instituting the tyrannical "sharia" form of government? Do they plan to establish bases from which to plan major 9/11 style attacks on the US once they take over Iraq, or is instability/civilwar/revolution in Iraq and the nearby middle-east region the worst they intend to do? And what should the US do in response to this new situation?

    Here's some news stories on the topic.

    Here's a plan. Take in all of the refugees, and let ISIS have Iraq. Yes, let the terrorists win and control the country.


    Then send all of our B-52's to carpet bomb the hell out of them.

    That could work...until the refugees spawn another new terror cell.

    Oh there's always going to be a terror cell, no matter what. It just means we'll have to produce more bombs to drop.

    It's a middle eastern country with oil reserves and warring religious factions.
    Do you expect it to be like equestria.

    For the better part of a century the oil there has been immensely more important to OPEC than to the rest of the world. This conflict is more of an attempt of the old Sunni leadership (ironically the minority of the country) to take back the command that was lost when Hussein's regime was toppled. From the latest news, ISIS is starting to bog down and lose most of its momentum. I think it'll have a show of force soon to try to convince the world that it still has staying power.

    I'm beyond apathetic when it comes to this... who cares? I don't even care about the affairs of my own country. It's all gone to hell. Accept it. It's nothing new and never will be.

    This blowback is pretty hilarious though. I still don't fully understand why Iraq was invaded in the first place, but whatever the goal was, the long term result has been that the entire region in the throes of a terrorist organisation (ISIS) that is wealthier than a small country and is flagrantly pulling off crap that makes Al Quaeda seem like the Dalton brothers.

    The country that is today called Iraq used to house the first civilizations in the west, dating back to 5,000 BC. Back then, it was called Mesopotamia. It's commonly referred to as the cradle of civilization. The region was home to some of the first empires in recorded human history. Basically, what the Roman empire is to us, the Akkadian empire was to the Romans.

    Iraq has always been a cesspool of chaos. Luckily I don't live there, but I feel sorry for anyone living there.

    Where are you getting this from? The country was perfectly stable before the invasion. Saddam Hussein was perhaps not the best of leaders, but by MENA standards, he really wasn't that bad.

    Yeah you are right. The country was actually pretty stable, until the Americans messed it up.
