With the U.S. now bombing in Iraq against ISIS it is important to remember that wars can be very easy to get into and very hard to get out of. A whole host of what ifs emerge that could easily keep us there for a long time. For example, what if a plane gets shot down, what if troops get taken hostage, or what if the Iraqi army fails to push ISIS back? All or any of these situations could draw us into a longer battle.
Just something to keep in mind as we continue bombing ISIS in Iraq.
