Not a damn thing. Are the results worth the investment? The bombs we are dropping are more expensive the the stuff we are hitting. Yeah America has enemies over there but if we keep bombing the place we are just creating new generations of enemies.

I think that the Sunnis will eventually kick ISIS out by themselves once they try to actively enforce their more draconian laws. Al-queda distanced itself from ISIS- that's how much ISIS sucks.

So, it really looks like the best course of action for the United States is to sit tight and let everyone else duke it out, at least as long as the conflict doesn't appear to be spreading beyond the borders of Syria and Iraq.

Iraq is becoming the next Afghanistan an endless quagmire of warring factions everything we did over there was ultimately pointless. Spent all the time and money removing a dictator and disbanding the military to make and train a new one only for them to fail to defend the people they were trained to protect. When you have been over there you sort of realise that they want a dictator they don't want democracy. They need a hero to worship who will tell them what to do it's in their mentality to do so. Taking that away just allows several leaders to rise up and fight each other forever. Now there is nothing any miiitary can do to stop the tidal wave that is coming and eventually it will consume Iraq forever. That whole war was a huge mistake and a ton of good people died for nothing at all just made things worse.

I don't think there is anything anyone can do at this moment in time about this incident and nobody should interfere. Since loads of people especially Muslims around the world tend to misunderstand that not only does the Iraqi government barely have any power to help eradicate ISIS before they do any MAJOR damage (not that they haven't already fucked up Iraq) but you have Kurdistan, who are apparently helping them and Saudi Arabia who use to fund them in the past, not sure about now but they are still getting funded. Whats worse is that you get these ignorant teens flying to Iraq and Syria (from here and other countries) talking about the ''inequality of Sunnis'' in Iraq and therefore joining ISIS, thinking that they can make this ''Islamic state'' exist with land from Iraq and Syria. I think the media around the world is also playing a part in this since they're just casually bullshitting about whats going on, and end up giving fools more reasons to go and fight.
Also, the big man, Abu Bakr Albaghdadi who is basically like the boss of ISIS in a way, used to be a supporter of Saddam Hussein and the ways he use to murder and cause destruction to Iraqis and Kurds. He's basically continuing where Saddam left off and trying to put it all on the religion of Islam. "All in the sake of god" isn't an excuse to kill or rape and I don't see where they got this sort of mentality because this sort of mentality is forbidden in their religion.

Anyways got a bit off topic, so much to talk about regarding this, but to answer the initial question:
Nobody should get involved with this. If countries want to aid the Iraqi government by supplying weapons, medicine etc. then ok but since these wealthy Arab countries aren't helping in any way, shows you how much they give a shit about their ''muslim brothers and sisters'' who are suffering. America would be better if they didn't get involved since they won't be wasting the lives of any troops and they won't get the hate they got last time they had troops in there.
Sorry I can't explain stuff like this really well and can't put everything in the right words but people just need to be educated the right way about this sort of matter.
