A year later and the black flags of the Islamic State (formerly ISIS), currently fluttering across lands from from northern Syria to the Iraqi province of Diyala north-east of Baghdad, have once again pushed the noxious issue of intervention to the forefront of the US foreign policy debate - a discourse that is further dividing an already fractured Republican Party, with the question of action versus non-action likely to run all the way to the 2016 election.

The right are too segmented and the left continues to sit back silently, absorbing all the false promises and deceitful acts. If the Republican's want an irrational, trigger-happy right-winger in the White House they would do well to stick with what they currently have.
