For real? Grant ISIS legitimacy and further destabilize Iraq?
And such considerations aside, one does not practice diplomacy with the likes of ISIS. When they're dealt with as being in any sense legitimate, they only take it as a sign of weakness and are encouraged to become even more aggressive and fanatical.
One wipes them from the face of the Earth. There is no other way to deal with homicidal fanatics like ISIS. They are not sane.
Sometimes I wonder how some folks negotiate their way from the bed to the floor every morning. Open diplomatic relations with a criminal organization whose idea of diplomacy is kidnapping innocent people, slicing their heads off, and then releasing videos of the festivities? What's next? Admitting the Mafia to the UN?
One might as well negotiate with cancer. Surgery is a better option.
