Actually I never labeled IS as "the bad guys." The fact is though according to the Trump administration IS has been defeated but it hasn't.

I have actually argued that IS was created in Iraq because Sunnis were shot to pieces protesting their treatment after Saddam. After Saddam many Sunni groups were complaining of oppression but because of the Iraqi government purge of Sunnis in the government and their treatment of them IS got support as a militant organization which would fight for them.

I am not pro or anti IS as much as I blame the US for opening the door for IS to exist. I am anti-war because it is what led to all of this. But to cut and run is not an option.
