Tom Friedman Describes The Hopeless Problem That We Face Against ISIS

Tom Friedman supported the US invasion of Iraq.  He now understands the chaos that it unleashed in Iraq and how that led to ISIS.  He also appreciates the complexity of the problems that we face in our efforts to eradicate and contain ISIS. The religious war between the Saudi's and Iran is at the heart of our struggles in the Mid-East.  Friedman now appreciates the problems faced by Obama and any president who succeeds him.  Unfortunately, many of our politicians tell the public that they have an easy solution for the complex problem that Friedman now understands.  Their focus in on winning elections which they understand.  We should expect more from our politicians but that is not likely to happen.
