I mentioned this months ago.
Everytime we intervene in the middle-east we create an even greater monster.
It comes down to the questions I asked in my http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?subject=When_is_it_justified_to_go_to_war%3F&threadid=160972
Believe me, I totally agree we shouldn't get involved.
However, if you already are involved (to switch the theme of the afore mentioned thread around), when can you justify just walking away from it all?
Hey... we spawned a psychotic monster and weakened everybody else...
Uh... Goodbye! Wish you well!
See? That doesn't sound very pleasant either.
