Don’t Take the Bait: The U.S. Should Not Send Troops to Fight ISIS

http://time.com/3723617/dont-take-the-bait-the-u-s-should-not-send-troops-to-fight-isis/

This article gives an interesting perspective as to why the U.S should not send troops to fight ISIS. One main reason, ISIS has demonstrated no particular ambition to attack the West at home. The article basically argues that sending Americans back into Anbar and Saladin provinces would provide ISIS with pure oxygen and fresh waves of volunteers, while feeding the narrative that the U.S. is in a war against Islam. But because the U.S has not been targeted, does that mean we should stand by and not help those in need? It that not a human rights violation? I know that we have gotten ourselves involved more than we should have in many different nations but ISIS has begun to involve other neighboring countries and killing others from those countries as well.
