Seriously. It won’t. Evidence? Yeah, 75% of people who believe we must send troops into Iraq to stop these horrifying beheadings don’t give a crap about evidence. Plus, they weren’t all that horrified when ISIS was only killing Syrians, Iraqis and Kurds.
Feb 2002 – Daniel Pearl is beheaded. On video.
March 2003 – The US sends 148,000 of a roughly 200K troop strong force into Iraq, fuck things up, and topple Saddam Hussein.
May 2004 – Nick Berg is beheaded. On video.
As you can see, the presence of 200,000 troops in Iraq was not enough to stop Berg’s beheading. And it won’t be enough now. And what – we’re going to spend another $4 trillion just to prevent some other idiot journalist from going into post-civil-war Syria on the border of recently seized ISIS territory, unarmed, and sitting and drinking coffee in an internet cafe?
What was it the idiots said about Jennifer Lawrence’s pics being stolen? Don’t take pics, and they won’t be stolen. Well that’s moronic and borderline rape-shaming, but how about if the fucking JOURNALISTS stop GOING INTO THE MIDDLE EAST? Isn’t that simpler and cheaper in every single possible way than sending American troops?
Yes it is.
