Are you on crack?
No offense but seriously.
Please don't throw your liberal one sided questions at me.

More like
A) They take control of their own country and it remains free from terrorists, better lifes for everyone.
B) They are not going to commit genocide because they ARE THE PEOPLE you seem to forget this is a DEMOCRACY.
Besides they try shit we will take them out...............again.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
