8. thanks for your respectful answer, and heres my response.

 

I honestly appreciate the way you answered my question, it was the first time in a long time that someone on DU answered a question in a respectful manner, thinking of the opposite position while answering why you stand by your own position.

But I want to say that the Sunni's in the region are already asking why the U.S refused to intervene when the Sunni's were getting slaughtered in Syria early on, only to intervene when Christians and Yazidis are threatened with slaughter?

The Sunni's are already asking why America decides to militarily intervene to help the Christians, Kurds and Yazidi's, when it refuses to help the Palestinians who face the same predicament in Gaza?
Heck, America didn't even militarily help the Shia government in Iraq when ISIS over ran their forces in northern Iraq, yet for the Christians, Kurds and Yazidi's, America decides to use military intervention and the Sunni's are questioning why.

This will only lead to more Sunni's becoming radicalized and fighting America and who ever is aligned with it IMO.
