I understand I am to take the con in this argument (but, my real opinion is yes for many reasons), so as a budding debater, will accept that challenge. Firstly, the most important thing to define is "everyone". I will assume by everyone you mean all countries. Which, then, we must also rule out countries that are not the superpowers such as US, the European countries and other countries which have a steady government and a budget.

Secondly, with the above information in mind, one must say that no, because all of these countries are not necessarily affected and have other more troubling things going on in their own backyards. Besides, is ISIS affecting those other countries? If not, then, they must continue to fight their own battles for now anyway.

After all, isn't that how we all take care of our issues? If a robber comes to our door with a gun and robs us, then it is our neighborhood's problem. However, if this never happens, then it is some neighborhood elsewhere that is affected and therefore, not our problem. This is the mentality of our thinking.

And lastly, this problem will go away and another one will just take its place and be called something else. Who can keep track of all the threats to peace our planet is faced with anyway? The countries not affected by ISIS have famine, floods and other life-threatening conditions that demand their awareness and immediate attention. The ISIS threat is just a fading issue that the "other neighborhood" must deal with, not them.
