Like I said, no matter what, who, or how troops are in that area, there will always be war. Has been, will be. I do not feel we are a police force. I think we have done more than enough and I think it is time for NATO or whoever to step for and take our place. JMOCertainly no other nation besides the US has literally fought a war and maintained so many troops in the region for years, at least in part, to protect the Kurds in Iraq.
