10. At this point it's a low cost experiment to see if

the Kurd army can be strengthened enough to fight Isis. That plus the humanitarian issue of helping the stranded people on the mountain.

It's too early to judge if we have another problem on our hands that will go on and on.

I disagree with the analysis about Turkey and Iran and their Kurds. While that is a consideration a bigger consideration is a "Caliphate" that will threaten them. They are more threatened by Isis, that's why the US is able to work to some extent with Iran on this.
