The mere suggestion that we lend support to the ruthless, corrupt Maliki regime in any way shape or form should be met, by any thinking American, with extreme loathing and unbridled anger.  What does the U.S. owe Iraq ?  More blood and treasure ? We have nothing to prove and nothing at stake. ISIS has largely shot its bolt, politically and perhaps militarily. Assad has gotten what he needed from ISIS as his pawn. Possibly too the Iraqi Sunnis whose alliance with ISIS was surely a temporary expedient.
