Should the United States continue to try and get rid of the Islamic State?

  • The Islamic State is a danger to the whole world

    The Islamic State can threaten the security of the entire world not only the Middle East. The United States is still the most powerful country in the world and has a duty to maintain the security of the world's population and its own population. Getting rid of Islamic State will ensure that people in the United States and in the rest of the world can go about their lives in peace.

  • Yes, the United States should continue to try to get rid of the Islamic State.

    The United States continue to try and get rid of the Islamic State because the Islamic State is trying to take over parts of the world with violence. The Islamic State has murdered many people and displaced many, turning them into refugees fleeing for their lives, so it is clearly a malicious, terrorist force. The United States should try to continue to get rid of the Islamic State not only because of that but also because they pose a threat to America's safety and working to get rid of them might prevent terror attacks in the United States.

  • Yes we should.

    Yes, it is our job to get rid rid of the islamic state. As many european countries are becoming afraid of "offending" muslims instead of trying to stop the terrorists and the crimes committed by refugees in their countries. The US needs to lead by example that we can stop these terrorists and bring the nations back to peace. Unfortunately, we'll need 3-4 consecutive presidents in office that all agree to occupy those nations to help build them up and support them afterwards so that another terrorist regime doesn't come into power.

  • The Islamic State is a danger to the whole world .

  • The Islamic State presents an existential crisis to the world.

    The Islamic State has lit the world on fire. They are attacking in so many areas, including France, Indonesia, the US and others. Their philosophy is to command complete domination over the entire world. Many believe we should begin to try to co-exist with them, but multiculturalism doesn't work. You can't co-exist with people who want to dominate and kill you.

  • The Islamic State is not the issue and abolishing the religion is certainly not the answer.

    Worldwide, America is known as the land of the free. So many of our national songs are about freedom and American pride. For example, the lyrics, "I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free" is obviously about a proud American who enjoys their right of freedom. If we get rid of the Islamic State, then Americans who happen to be Muslim can no longer say they are free. Also, getting rid of the Islamic State brings up many questions such as, "What if I am born an American Catholic but plan on converting to Islam strictly for the religious beliefs?", "If I was born in the US and I am Muslim, will I have to leave?", "What about all of the successful Muslims fighting for our freedom in the US military?", "What if a Muslim comes up with the cure for cancer but is not allowed in the US?" As I hope you can understand by now, abolishing Muslims from the US does nothing but add more stress on the issue we currently have, which is terrorism. Before you point fingers at WHO is the problem, point fingers at WHAT is the problem. Fear is our issue. The only reason people want Muslims out of the country is because they are running on fear which is what the terrorist groups want, hence the name TERRORist. You must understand the difference between terrorists and Muslims, understand the difference between each terrorist group, and more importantly, understand that Americans need to stick together no matter your ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, etc... If we continue on the path that we are on right now, we will be entering World War 3.... Against ourselves.

  • We shouldn't be so easy to exhaust resources on a pointless cause

    That being said we should continue to work with the kurds and protect the Christians that are facing persecution. Unfortunately we can't protect everyone from the scum that go around destroying their own people and attack innocent people. But yeah stick with sending Cia and sf to train and provide intelligence to them. We can definitely support them with little cost of lives or resources.

  • No, destroying the Islamic State is not a realistic goal.

    No, the United States should not continue to try to get rid of the Islamic State. Though it is of utmost importance for the US to protect its security and diplomatic interests, it is not within one nation's power to dismantle a political and ideological movement as violent and far-reaching as the Islamic State. Continued attempts to "destroy" ISIS through military force will only serve to further the terrorist organization's goals.

  • Definitely Not - No Way

    The United States already "helped" enough. They came to the Middle East, attacked these countries, make up lies to cover up their true intentions of the Middle East (Oil and other resources), then left Iraq and these other countries in a mess. Then with all the disorder and crisis, the Iraqi military and survivors formed ISIS to combat against the American invaders. It's America's own fault for 9/11, but they blame Muslims on it.

    Now, they are bombing all over the place, which kills innocent civilians. Thanks America, we don't need your "help".

  • It's none of our business and a waste of our money

    ISIS is not an existential threat to the United States nor our allies. ISIS is a faction in civil wars occurring in the middle east. ISIS is barbaric, that is true, but barbarism isn't a sufficient condition for American involvement. The conflict is occurring on the other side of the planet. There isn't much in it for us to go over there. So what if ISIS takes over Iraq or Syria? It's not America's problem, it doesn't have to be America's problem, and it's not as if the other factions that ISIS is fighting are all that much better anyway.
