I would not help or aid either side, I would let the social chips rise and or fall where they may, I would allow the natural balance of the region to work itself out, after a near century of interference and artificial border building, social building, by the West.
All the borders in the middle East were imposed by European powers (same with Africa).
For years it worked as the West had great technological and military might and advantage.
That's not so much the case anymore, as such, if I were President I would not continue trying to run the middle East as if it's 1946 anymore.
These days are long gone, where you could fly into Iran or Iraq in a bi-plane and wooh everyone.
As President I would not create a whole new generation of anti American hostilities by interfering.
The only way Iraqis will ever grow up and mature is if they learn to fight for themselves, for their own reasons, not ours.
That's very important.
The victory needs to be there's, not ours.
The U.S. should stand back and be neutral advisors to both sides.
ISIS is not anti American....yet....but if we go in there dropping bombs, then they will be, and we'll awaken a whole new generation of anti U.S. groups in the region...and for what?
President will get blamed either way...if he goes in, GOP/Dem's will criticize him, if he does nothing, he'll get criticized.
And with a few years left to serve I wouldn't be trying to end my Presidency the Way both Bushes did, with lingering wars and conflicts aflame.
If I were President I'd back off and let the chips fall where they may in the whole middle east saga.

Sad indeed...but if I were President I'd do the following.
First I must say I hate the devil for making people have to make young kids, without their parents, feel rejected.
That will stay with them for life.
But at the same time I don't blame them for doing it.
I feel bad and sorry for both sides.
Being human means being humane, and having the capacity to 'feel' and sympathize with all.
But if I were President I would use that $2 billion dollars he requested, and use that money to fly poor kids back to home countries, and use that money to build facilities in their home countries to help them better selves.
Schools, safe havens, ect.
But as President my first responsibility is to the citizens of the nation who elected me.
That may sound mean, but that's just the fact jack...
As President I love all, but my oath is to my fellow countrymen/women first, and to all other second.
But again, because Jesus loved children, so do I...and would use my power to help aid them get help, and medical treatment back in their own countries...I would fly doctors down their to help them out.
Ask for funding to help schools be built, safe havens ect.
But in the end I'd have to follow the rules of this nation, and send them all back, but with love, care and concern.
May God be with these poor kids who have been abandoned by their parents.
And may Gods Curse fall upon any one, or any group who tries to harm these kids and exploit their situation.
Don't matter if they're redneck or roughneck or city or rural.
I speak common sense and order.
And know what it takes to keep a society civil and able to operate.
No stupid partisan political speeches.
Lady's and Gentleman...I won't sit here and tell you one exploitive party is better than the other or next, that's not why I'm here, I'm here to 'fix things', for you, the common worker, the common person who exists in this nation, the common person who has limited life, health and energy.
I won't feed you this big fat lie that 'All Republicans are gooooood, and love you...or that all Democratic politicians love you...I won't feed you that line of nonsense.
I'll simply deal with issues that effect every day common people and seek to roll back the Bureaucracy that effects us all, that smoothers us all, that both parties, are responsible for implementing.
Like Windex...I'd simply wipe the window clean of all such smudges, so that you could be free again...
Free to live without 1000's of regulations regulating your daily life.
Many agencies would be evaporated under my admin....evaporated and destroyed, dismantled.
I would appeal to common people, not parties or ideologies.
I would once again make America land of the free, not land of the taxed and burdened, and codified.
Either we're free or we're not.
And it shouldn't be the responsibility, burden, of common people to support tyranny through their labor and hard work.
Welfare would be wiped out from day one
As such future generations of crime and poverty would be eradicated, as people, women, men, would take much more responsibility in the actions they chose.
Welfare wiped out, once and for all, and no more ghettos where the poor are Warehoused.
All that would come to a sudden stop under my admin.
Single urban mothers would no longer be rewarded for loose irresponsible behavior....period...and as such future kin will, would be thankful.
But nor would I be a friend to big business or mindless, sensless, sending billions over seas to nations where dictators and the corrupt take all the money.
Instead I'd grant 'Amnesty' to American citizens...and every 4 years release billions, trillions, onto on population to clear people of their debts.
You, the common person out there, would like me as your President...cause I realize life is short, your life is short...and 'ideology' means squat when laying in Hospital bed with no way to pay for medical care.
To be continued...

The reason why I don't believe in executions decades after someone committed crime, is cause by that time it's quiet possible person really has changed, evolved, and it's gross to me, to put someone to death, who is not the same person who actually committed crime, makes no sense.
People do change, evolve, and if you put someone to death 30 years after they did the deed, you're really putting to death a totally different person...and I find that gross.
That's why I feel executions should be performed while the person who did the crime, is still that person...not 40 years later when they've matured and completely changed.

If I were President Welfare wiped out, in order to help restore family order
If I were President...I'd implement just the opposite welfare qualifications that exist now...instead of having to be a single Mother to receive benefits, I'd change it to...
Only Married couples with Children eligible for fiscal help!
Ye, that's right...I'd inject some common sense into this welfare thing, and instead of rewarding single Mothers, and Men, for not being responsible in relationship I'd punish them with no benefits and instead reward Couples, Married couples who stick together and are struggling to raise their family do to hard times, low pay, high rent ect.
If I were President I'd give benefits to the right people who actually play by the rules, not the irresponsible folks who don't care and who keep milking system.
As a result women would become much much more selective over who they day and lay down with, knowing that if they get pregnant do to fornicating, that the Government won't be their to feed them.
This would make people much more smart and keen, and open a lot of eyes. Under my presidency if you get pregnant out of marriage your family would be burdened with taking care of both yourself and offspring, not other tax payers.
All public housing projects would be bulldozed down and replaced with parks or schools or colleges.
Housing projects are nothing more than breeding grounds for future criminals, crime and lost lives.
All younger urban males would be rounded up, and forced to join either military or work training camps, but wouldn't just be allowed to roam without direction, just to end up in jail or prison after victimizing others.
Yes, that may be harsh to some, but future generations would be thankful that once and for all this self destructive sub culture would be wiped out, which is now spilling over into mainstream.
If you ignore cancer it simply spreads, so you have to treat it.
And societal decay is like a disease, if you ignore it it will simply spread and infect others.
