March on to Baghdad

So the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant have basically sent American trained and armed Iraqi troops running, leaving their weapons behind. All of the billions of dollars, all of the lives lost and ruined, all for naught?

I can't help but wonder if we should just build a wall around the Middle East and let them all fight it out? There seems to be no respect for life, differing opinions, concern for women or children; there is only concern for power and dominance. The news says millions are fleeing. What would happen if those same millions said no to the militants and simply overwhelmed them. I don't mean to sound indifferent to the plight of the Iraqi people, but the time must come to stand against their tormentors and tell them/make them, go away.

I just don't if we, or the rest of the world, can justify more lives and even dollars on the Middle East insanity.
