ISIS, ISIL and the Islamic State

Should the U.S. be involved in the war to destroy ISIS?  I say NO!  For the following reasons:

1.  Our involvement gives Middle Eastern countries an excuse to not be involved.
2.  The history of our wars in the middle east tell us that the result of the wars is many times not what we expected, and we are left with a bigger mess afterwards.
3. This war fuels the U.S. war machine. We have become reliant on big spending to make weapons of War.
4. The result of this war will be many more U.S. enemies created in the Middle East, because we are looked upon as the killers of the innocents.

I will explain each of these points in 4 blog posts to follow.

Next: How our involvement gives Middle Eastern countries an excuse to not be involved.
