I agree with this...but if we establish the fact that we would need to stay there a LONG time, should the US just say "fuck it" and let the bloodbath continue? I'm not even sure there is a right answer.

Should we help? Probably, because we helped to cause the instability and because it would be in our interest to have a stable ally in the region. The only downside is that it would take a massive amount of resources and decades, if it's even possible to stabilize Iraq.

I think that if you broke it, you own it so yeah, I do think the US has a responsibility to keep stability in Iraq.
