Yeah, like the kurds are the most credible angels in the universe.

The previous batch was sold by the British btw. How quaint.

The Kurds have actually been proven to be reliable. Back when they were saying that Turkey was directly collaborating with ISIS, no-one bat an eye and gave two shits. Only after a wide array of reports coming from different directions proving the same, did people start paying attention to it. Turns out they were right.

Their people have some of the most civilized principles you're gonna find in the Middle-East, they are the most reliable allies we could have in the region, but go ahead and keep on trying to discredit them so you won't feel so bad about apologizing for ISIS atrocities, with which you've sympathized.

Actually the ISIS aid in Turkey was revealed by Turkish military officers who were against Erdogan. I have no idea how the Kurds managed to steal the credit but it has it has to do with the unquestioning idolization by the West.

Kurds are also notorious for their honor killings. I've been in the area (long before the Syrian war) Kurds are absolutely not anything like they are portrayed in the West.

This bodes poorly for everyone in the region . Chemical weapons are basically the only way to make Isis worse

Just another one to add up to the pile of crimes this regime has committed against the people of the Middle-East. Looking forward to seeing how some of you folks bend your sense of morality and logic to try to make a case that this isn't a regime worth fighting against.

Because it's not my fight? Let the Syrians and Iraqis fight them. We american's don't need to be world police and I'd rather not have my taxes pay for more failed interventions which only embed hatred of america into the culture of the middle east which inevitably leads to more(read: not less) terror attacks hitting North America.

So if you see a person beat up another one senselessly on the street, you just keep on walking, knowing you could and should have stopped it, after all, it's not what your fight, what do you care if one ends up being killed? This is obviously an atrocious sense of morality.

First of all, you have a moral duty to intervene. What differentiates the US from most other countries in the world is that we have the capability to intervene in these affairs, which is something most countries can't do. Secondly, stability in the Middle-East is directly important to us due to a) the world's oil supply b) Dangerous weapons that may end up in the hands of fanatical regimes like ISIS.

which only embed hatred of america into the culture of the middle east which inevitably leads to more(read: not less) terror attacks hitting North America.

Absolute nonsense. The very people that are living in the neighboring areas of the ISIS controlled territory completely detest this fundamentalist regime. They don't want to live under a tyrannical regime where their freedoms are basically non-existent. That's why the Kurds and the Arabs in the region have asked for our help in the fight against this group.
